Product ManualManual

The AN9725LG Logo Inserter system is a complete analog logo insertion package that will key one, or many, static/animated "bugs" over a composite analog video signal. Logos created in BMP, TIF or TGA file formats can be imported into the Evertz® Overture™ software and transferred to the AN9725LG 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 access up to 4GB of online logo storage space and virtually unlimited archived media storage.

The AN9725LG has been designed to manage and store multiple logos. Each logo size is variable and ranges from 1/25th to full screen. The position of the logo, fade rates and animation rates are user-controllable. Up to 16 logos can be keyed simultaneously with independent fade control for each.

The onboard preview allows you to cue your logos for position and content verification prior to going "On Air".

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 analog video with no need for format conversion. The variable height text font can be positioned anywhere on the screen and rendered with any TrueType 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 recreating the associated logo graphics.
