At IBC2004, SysMedia launched InSERT-7, the newest version of its teletext carousel generator and inserter.
The inserter is available in an analog version. Full SDI capability will be available in early 2005. Both options are based on a newly developed PCI bus insertion card and hosted under the Linux operating system. More than one inserter can be housed in the same rack-mount box.
The packaged inserter offers a fast network interface over which page content and commands are submitted. Sophisticated insertion algorithms ensure efficient use of the VBI, and it allows broadcasters to control a wide range of insertion parameters, including data pulse shaping and overshoot, via a programmable user interface. Lines can be blanked if required and the hardware is also capable of delivering other VBI signals such as Line 21, WSS and VPS. Row zero can be user-templated, and the system offers an advertising ticker capability.
