Playout is a Windows application that gives users the ability to select, populate and put a graphic to air, either individually or in a run down list. It has an intuitive user interface well suited to the needs of live graphics in the truck or gallery. Operators will immediately feel at home with it, thus minimising training requirements and the time taken to adopt it.
There is intelligence between the graphics templates being used and the Playout interface. When a graphic is selected a dialogue box will appear inviting the operator to make any required inputs or validate automated data and inputs. This makes Playout perfect for use alongside automated playout for manual checks and corrections.
With the right hardware and licencing in place it’s standard dialogue box previewing capabilities can be extended to include a full graphical preview of graphics when cued ready for transmission.
It can run on the rendering PC or any PC on the network, and is included with the Swift or Edit-3d creation licence.
