Hi Tech Systems at NAB 2013, Stand N3733, North Hall
Basingstoke, England - New at NAB 2013 from Hi Tech Systems is a further development to the unique and popular AViTA production control system that is deployed by broadcasters worldwide. AViTA is already in use for news play out, automation back up, studio production and scheduled record – and now Hi Tech offers multi-camera record and review.
This provides a clear and easy way to control up to sixteen record, or a mixture of record and play, server channels for studio production work. AViTA interfaces to any professional video server and easily integrates into production and post-production workflows. Scenes and takes can be captured with metadata and production notes directly associated with recordings. Review of all or selected recorded clips is carried out with one button press, and the system supports XML file transfers.
The core of the system is the AViTA engine that provides sophisticated video clip management tools with shared databases, multiple play lists and enhanced search facilities. AViTA can be supplied as a software only system and can be fully driven by a touch screen featuring gesture control of the various system applications. Alternatively, AViTA is supplied as a system of hardware consoles and mix-and-match control modules so that a panel can be constructed to suit the operational requirements of a particular workflow application.
The hardware panel has a large clear touch screen with gesture control that is used to manage play lists, server set ups, clip creation and management, database creation and searching and is used to configure the hardware modules with an extensive range of functionality and appearance choices.
The system is highly expandable and has several software extensions such as a MOS interface, multiple server port control from one panel, scheduled play and record, logging and highlights applications, tape archive and ingest, and automated play out from single or multiple ports
Tom Favell, managing director, said “AVITA takes Hi Tech’s control expertise right to the heart of production workflow, providing financial and operational benefits to our customers.”
