M-WEBKEY web page keyer
The M-WEBKEY IP/SDI web page keyer provides a cost-effective alternative to a full graphics system. It's ideal for channel branding as well as providing news, weather, advert and emergency information overlays for both IP and SDI infrastructures.
The M-WEBKEY is unique because it can key a web page on to a video input. With traditional keying, the external key and fill have to be created and output as video which requires expensive dedicated character generator hardware, whereas keying a web page means that the key and fill source never become video.
The M-WEBKEY allows Flow 1 or a matte to be set as the background source, with the overlaid foreground source and key signal (which defines the graphic's location and transparency) coming from the URL that is entered. The M-WEBKEY plus a web designer and web server could provide all the graphics for a channel.
The M-WEBKEY can be used with IP (ST 2022 and ST 2110 video), with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time for hybrid systems. This gives you the easiest possible SDI to IP upgrade, while also making it perfect for mixed SDI and IP installations as well as fully IP or fully SDI environments. It works with 31 different video standards, including 1080p.
Features include the ability to fade the key up and down, crops to force areas of background or foreground, a framestore synchroniser plus ten frames of video delay to help with system integration and extensive signal monitoring.
The M-WEBKEY is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor. A card that fits in the Vision 3 frame, MARBLE-V1 features a powerful CPU/GPU processor, six bi-directional SDI connections and four 10GbE SFP+ network interface ports and allows different apps to be installed when needs change.
