RT Software’s comprehensive Broadcast Graphics solutions at IBC 2023 – Stand 7.B18

London, UK. August 2023

If you’re attending the show and have a broadcast graphics project in mind, the RT Software team would love discuss your requirements. The team can take you through their complete broadcast graphics solutions for News, Sports, Entertainment, and Channel Branding.

Visitors to the show will be able to see live demonstrations of augmented reality graphics, best in class sports analysis graphics / telestration, newsroom NRCS integration and simple to use overlays for studios and playout automation.

Tactic v7.0 Telestration – New Release

Making its debut will be Tactic v7.0, RT Software’s best in class, sports analysis telestrator. Tactic has already impressed users with its AI enhancements. These features let users accelerate the production of stunning analysis sequences for post match shows. By offering AI features, Tactic greatly increases the accuracy of the graphics, and improves the quality of broadcaster’s output.

Tactic v7.0 new AI feature is ‘AI Player Drag and Infill’. This AI upgrade of a previously manual process lets users drag a player across the pitch to illustrate the pros and cons of alternative positions. The AI take over the tedious task of filling in the empty space by automatically adding a convincing simulated background. It is much quicker than doing this by hand. This new feature builds on the proven success of AI Automatic Pitch Calibration and AI Player Tracking. 

Tactic lets broadcasters achieve results in a fraction of the time of competing products that use manual processes. This time saving lets the users deliver much more insightful analysis sequences – we call this Next Gen Analysis™.

Live Augmented Reality Graphics Demo

Have you ever wondered how high speed international yacht racing adds live AR graphics to their coverage, via helicopter, from a base in London? Come and watch the live AR demonstration on the RT Software stand. Discuss the challenges of signal latency for live graphics and international remote production with the RT Software experts.

Included in the AR demonstration on the stand will be Canon’s latest CR-N500 PTZ camera which will deliver the live feeds into the graphics engine. Speak to our team if you would like to discuss any project challenges you may have with synchronisation between cameras and graphics engines.

Swift CG

Swift CG and Swift CG+ graphics editors are the foundation for all of RT Software’s solutions, whether for News, Sports, Entertainment or Channel Branding. Visitors will be able to trial an advanced preview of the new web version – named Swift Edit.

This builds on the success of the live production tool, Swift Live, typically used in studio environments to trigger live graphics to air. Swift Live will also be running to let visitors understand how its flexible interface can make controlling live show graphics easier for gallery operators.

Cloud and Partner Platforms

RT Software is demonstrating its commitment to interoperability with other vendors by participating in 2 demonstrations on other vendor’s stands.
