zLense Broadcast GFX
Bluefish444 will discuss the benefits of Bluefish444 video hardware used in conjunction with the most popular Broadcast Graphic workflows, including Virtual Sets, Graphic Overlays, Subtitling, and many more.
Bluefish444 will have a demonstration of zLense using Epoch | 4K Neutron video I/O on stand SL9021 at NAB Show 2018. The demonstration will show how backgrounds can be separated from talent without the use of any green screen, and will show how the Bluefish444 Epoch | 4K Neutron low-latency hardware can help reduce the delay in CG workflows. Bluefish444 Epoch hardware will be used in both the zKey appliance and also in the 3D rendering appliance, utilising Unity plug-in for the final rendered output via Bluefish444 SDI.
zLense’s zKey™ 3D keying system uses depth information to separate the foreground talent from the background, creating an alpha channel in real time. Bluefish444 Epoch video cards capture uncompressed HD-SDI video from the camera where the depth information and the video data are processed, an alpha channel is generated, and both playout as 4:2:2:4 Fill and Key SDI.
