Pinnacle’s Deko 3000 allowed the crew to make adjustments on the fly, even at air time.
For this year’s telecast, the producers selected a graphics device, the Pinnacle Deko 3000. Its capabilities include real-time 3-D motions, 3-D DVE-style transitions, video clips and animating true 3-D models.
Deko 3000 renders 3-D models in real-time. First, 3-D models are created in Discreet 3ds max, where images and text data are specified inside the Deko. Once these 3-D models are imported, designated images and text data are defined, and the resulting graphic plays back entirely in real-time, including the 3-D model. This allows 3-D graphics to be designed once, and then used in multiple graphics with customized text and images.
