MagicSoft CG – Elevating Broadcast Quality Graphics
Experience broadcast-quality graphics with MagicSoft CG, powered by a GPU-based rendering engine that supports both SD and HD modes. Our graphics are presented in 24-bit TrueColor, with an 8-bit alpha channel providing 256 transparency levels. Features like de-interlacing and anti-flicker display options ensure the flawless output of images and live video.
Unleash 3D Creativity (No Layers Required): Our 3D working environment offers freedom in animation by allowing you to move, rotate, and manipulate colors and transparency, all while dynamically adjusting the z-axis, eliminating the limitations seen in layer-oriented programs. The GPU handles rendering for both Preview and On Air, reducing the need for a powerful CPU. A key-frame concept simplifies object animation over time and interpolation between key-frames.
Scripting and Automation for Seamless Control: MagicSoft CG supports scripting, opening doors to applications like SMS to TV. Our TCP/IP protocol empowers you to control the display and content of your projects seamlessly.
