I'm helping out a small cable station and I need to get station ID logo (maybe a 3d logo spinning or something) in the lower right corner of the live output. I bought something, only to find out it takes a 256 x 68 monochrome bit map still, and it looked terrible.
I understand the kona 3 does this but I have never seen it in action.
So, can kona 3 work here and does it do the job?
Can it loop a logo with an alpha on screen over live video in realtime?
Can it place more than one logo at a time and can you adjust the positioning or crop same?
Can it handle zany stuff like on discovery channel and or other stations where a guy walks on in the lower right, waves then walks off?
Correct me if I'm wrong but I will not require any external raids or raid adaptor cards if I am just going to use it for what i described above right?. It should just be the kona 3 and the lowest grade macpro (quad core 2.0) ?!
