At prices ranging from $6,995 to $15,995 it is an affordable on-air graphics solution for broadcasters plus a variety of other markets such as corporate, sports, education and house of worship. It is also perfect for shelf mounting in tight spaces such as broadcast trucks, mobile racks, and fly away kits.
With Titler Live 4 Broadcast software preinstalled, customers can create custom motion graphics easily using the built-in Title Designer. Titler Live 4 Broadcast includes a full-motion editor and hundreds of built-in templates, simplifying and speeding up the design creation process. Customers can also import their existing still and motion graphics including Adobe After Effects projects.
Fusion 2’s Titler Live 4 Broadcast software also enables spreadsheet data to be displayed in real-time by importing Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and tables, XML files, CSV files, and text files. Data can be hosted as a single file and displayed in rich infographics such as leaderboards and lower thirds. Social media controllers and custom social templates engage audiences with live comments, tweets, and Facebook reaction polling queued up in a custom, aggregated playlist so all your audience engagement can be managed from one place. For those customers streaming a live sports broadcast, Titler Live 4 Broadcast can drive scoreboard data with real-time reading of JSON and XML files as well as bringing in scoreboard data from Daktronics, Stat Crew, or Sportzcast.
Fusion 2 also provides unparalleled integration with the Blackmagic Design ATEM line of video switchers. Using the ATEM SDK with Titler Live 4 Broadcast and Fusion 2 combines the switching power and quality of the ATEM with the production polish of NewBlue graphics software. Titler Live overlays the ATEM output with a range of graphics, including lower thirds, media clips, webcam picture-in-picture, plus live social media comments and synchronized stinger transitions.
