CAMBRIDGE, on February 3, 2017 Chameleon, an adaptable media graphics solution for NDI, SDI and Digital online applications contains the company’s best branding and ticker elements that media organizations expect in an increasingly on-demand broadcast environment.
“ We moved in a direction where both products worked well together. Even on the graphics side, both Brando and Super Ticker could co-exist on the same CG and users could log onto both simultaneously even with the same credentials using LDAP or Google.” - George Hentsch, President, Bannister Lake Software.
Bannister Lake’s Chameleon effort was an initiative to build an HTML5 renderer for web-based, signage and inexpensive media solutions. It quickly morphed into an SDK giving customers support for any CG to be plugged into the architecture. That early success developed into expanded support from HTML5 rendering to supporting Ross Video’s XPression, NewTek’s NDI and soon to be released SDI support using the AJA SDK, culminating in potential developments for additional CG vendors to collaborate with Bannister Lake.
Media businesses have the option to own an instance of Chameleon on a native server or access on the cloud . Cloud offers flexible and dynamic access to multiple terminals with no need for executable files. Multiple readers, modules and ranges in services to accommodate small, moderate and large media organizations is proof of its adaptability. The software is a cross-platform source for media, signage, digital and web solution; from Chameleon NDI for data only solutions to Chameleon Cloud and Chameleon Pro that push data plus digital and video output.
“A ticker zone shows programming information right in the rundown. It could display weather, scores and what’s on next on the current channel or for all channels in the station group; all as part of a simple or a complex rundown. On the branding side, a bug could show weather information for a city or a playlist of cities. Or a sponsored snipe that shows scores of all the major teams in your city. The possibilities are endless.” - Georg Hentsch, President, Bannister Lake Software During the NAB show book with Danny or D’Arcy or any of our sales reps at the booths or visit bannisterlake.com/NAB2017 to book an appoinment to view Chameleon.
