Orad GBox 2U Makes Debut At IBC; Provides Cost-Effective Graphics Rendering

Orad Hi-Tec Systems Limited will unveil the GBox 2U, its new entry level,
cost-effective video graphics rendering platform at IBC2008. The GBox
2U is a compact 2U rack-mountable box, which includes both the control
PC and the rendering platform in a single physical box.
Similarly to Orad’s high-end HDVG
platform, the GBox 2U platform supports Orad’s Maestro HD/SD character
generator, and 3DPlay channel branding and auto promo solutions. Additionally, the
GBox 2U will be bundled with Orad’s 3Designer authoring software,
offering a complete graphic preparation suite for graphic designers and
artists.
Taking advantage of Orad’s high-end
graphics rendering engine, this new turnkey solution enables the
playout of real-time 3-D graphics, and of multiple video files
supporting all commonly used formats such as AVI, QuickTime (with
alpha), DV, DVC25, and MPEG. GBox 2U also supports one SD/HD video
insertion, enabling the user to map a video onto any object in the
graphic scene.
Mr. Avi Sharir, CEO and President of
Orad: “We are continuously striving to offer our customers new
state-of-the-art solutions and platforms that meet all types of
requirements and budgets. Based on the same technology, GBox 2U is a
welcome addition to the HDVG rendering platform family.”
