ATHENSA GRAPHICS (AG) is a sophisticated, yet extremely user-friendly on-air CG and graphics manager. It lets you create different static or dynamic objects such as rolls, crawls, multi-layered simultaneous still pictures, analog and digital clocks, animated logos etc., and save them in projects. Those could easily be used for direct broadcasting or as customized templates for future use. In addition, ATHENSA GRAPHICS has a built-in Scheduler which lets you start objects from previously created project(s) at different times.
ATHENSA GRAPHICS can run as a standalone solution or run in the background, without its front-end interface. This allows all objects and slide actions to be triggered by a third party OEM software which sends its script commands via network protocol.
ATHENSA GRAPHICS is designed to work in sync with the ATHENSA PLAYOUT. This allow objects in ATHENSA GRAPHICS to be started or stopped by using the ATHENSA PLAYOUT. This is achieved by inserting ATHENSA GRAPHICS Net control events in the ATHENSA PLAYOUT playlist.
ATHENSA GRAPHICS control can also be automated using scripts triggered by metadata condition from ATHENSA PLAYOUT. The playlist metadata value from ATHENSA PLAYOUT can be sent to the text objects.
ATHENSA GRAPHICS provides powerful tools for project preparation and extensive control over on-air graphics. The projects may include:
