Nov 4, 2015 – (Mount Laurel, NJ) TelVue® Corporation (OTC: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting systems for cable operators, communities and media companies today released version 5.3 of its flagship HyperCaster SD/HD broadcast server. TelVue HyperCaster v5.3 includes professional quality on-air graphics and new sophisticated content management features. Integration with the AJA® KUMO SDI video switcher has also been added, joining a wide array of popular baseband video routing switchers supported by the HyperCaster for hybrid SDI and IP workflows.
When integrated with a TelVue ProVue IP decoder, the new HyperCaster expands the design capabilities of the graphics overlays to include foreground and background images in the ticker design, drag-and-drop positioning of all design elements, and drop shadow text for both tickers and snipes.
On the content management side, HyperCaster v5.3 displays a revamped user interface with more intuitive metadata features, improved search, and easier access to media file and workflow actions.
The HyperCaster v5.3 release coincides with the release of ProVue v2.6, which — besides the graphics enhancements — now supports baseband input (Analog, HDMI, SDI) for scaling and graphics with baseband inputs in addition to IP, and a configurable Autofade feature for enhanced transition effects.
“Version 5.3 represents significant improvements throughout the entire application, most notably: more elegant graphic tools, simplified content management, and improved synchronization with our cloud-based TelVue Connect content aggregation and transcoding service,” explained Chris Perry, Director of Broadcast Product Management. “These improvements – often driven by user feedback – mean TelVue can continue to provide a high-quality, professional-looking user experience at an affordable price… and the downstream graphics are nothing short of stunning.”
