Product ManualManual

The 9725LG Logo Inserter is a complete SD Logo Insertion package that will key one, or many, static/animated "bugs" over SD video signal. Logos created in BMP, Tiff, TGA file formats can be imported into the Evertz® Overture™ software and transferred to the 9725LG via Ethernet. Logos are stored in flash memory and can be quickly accessed via front panel, quick select keys, GPI inputs, automation and Overture™. With the removable Compact Flash option you can have access of up to 8 Gigabytes of on-line logo storage space and virtually unlimited archived media storage.

The 9725LGA Media Inserter is a complete Logo and Audio insertion package that will key one, or many, static/animated "bugs" over an SDI video signal. It will also duck program audio, insert preformatted audio clips (WAV files), and voiceovers.

The 9725LG and 9725LGA have been designed to manage and store multiple logos. The size of each logo is variable and ranges from 1/25th to full screen. The position of the logo, fade rates, clip association and animation rates are user-controllable. Up to 16 logos can be keyed simultaneously with independent fade control for each logo.

The onboard preview allows you to cue your logos for position and content verification prior to going "On Air". The Media Inserter Voice Over audio input allows for 1 button audio switching.

The EAS crawl support allows for connection to an existing EAS decoder. This RS-232 connection allows weekly tests (white text on green), watch alerts (white on yellow) and warnings (white on red) to be scrolled across the video with no need for format conversion. The variable height text font can be positioned anywhere on the screen and rendered with any True Type font.

The TXT option allows for the creation of custom text messages that can be displayed as crawls or fixed position fields on top of keyed graphic logos. These user-defined elements can be dynamically updated by Ethernet using the Overture™ software. Text crawls and fields retain display information such as background/foreground transparency, color, position and font while the dynamic text may be changed without re-creating the associated logo graphics.

The 9725LG and 9725LGA modules are VistaLINK® capable, offering remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). This product feature offers another solution to manage operations including signal monitoring and module configuration from SNMP-enabled control systems (Manager or NMS) locally or remotely.
