X-Pert Graphics (XG) is a sophisticated, yet extremely user-friendly on-air CG and graphics manager. It lets you create different static or dynamic objects such as rolls, crawls, multi-layered simultaneous still pictures, analogue and digital clocks, animated logos etc., and save them in projects. Those could easily be used for direct broadcasting or as customised templates for future use. In addition, X-Pert Graphics has a built-in Scheduler which lets you start objects from previously created project(s) at different times.
X-Pert Graphics can run as a standalone solution or run in the background, without its front-end interface. This allows all objects and slide actions to be triggered by a third party OEM software which sends its script commands via network protocol.
The solution is designed to work in sync with the X-Pert Playout. This allows objects in X-Pert Graphics to be started or stopped by using the X-Pert Playout. This is achieved by inserting X-Pert Graphics Net control events in the X-Pert Playout playlist. Control can also be automated using scripts triggered by metadata condition from X-Pert Playout. The playlist metadata value from X-Pert Playout can be sent to the text objects.
X-Pert Graphics provides powerful tools for project preparation and extensive control over on-air graphics. The projects may include:
