Maestro
Complete end-to-end real-time graphics and video production
Easily create, manage, and play out stunning, high-resolution 3D graphics and videos with Maestro™, a complete on-air
graphics suite that integrates with Avid® and third-party news and editing applications. And with the latest version, you gain
greater platform integration and faster workflows to boost your production efficiency and possibilities further.
Take control of your entire production
From on-air and interactive graphics, to virtual studio displays,
high-res video wall content, and video, Maestro provides everything
you need for full end-to-end graphics production. Create 2D/3D
graphics with the included 4Designer authoring software. Then
compose templates and take command of your live show with
Maestro. You can even control video and graphics playback multiple
ways—manually and with SmartShot, an iPad, automation system,
and video switcher.
Gain ultimate workflow efficiency
• Using a dedicated iPad application, enabling news anchors to
have control over graphics
Integrate into any production environment
Maestro offers an intuitive workflow that enables journalists and
editors to add graphics to their stories. Integrate with…
• Newsroom systems, including Avid iNEWS, AP ENPS, Octopus,
Dalet, NorCom NCPower, and Annova OpenMedia.
• Video editing systems, including Media Composer ®, Adobe
Premiere, Sony Sonaps, EVS Xedio, S4M VPMS, and Sobey
using the NewsProducer NLE plug-in
Maestro integrates with many newsroom and editing systems to
expand production capabilities, providing a bundle of modular
applications for easy scalability. Plus, its deep integration with
the MediaCentral® Platform simplifies workflows. Quickly add
components and change configurations as needed without
disruption. Interact with Maestro graphics from MediaCentral | UX.
Find relevant content faster. Connect to Interplay ® systems. Retrieve
iNEWS® rundowns without MOS. And add MAM capabilities for
even greater collaborative efficiency.
In addition, the integration with MediaCentral | UX, including new
integration into the sequence editor, enables you to access and
work on graphics and video content from anywhere—without any
hardware restrictions or installations on the client station. You get
greater overall efficiency in a more streamlined and tightly integrated
solution.
Bring content to air faster
Control video playback
At its core, Maestro is a robust content playout device that
significantly speeds up video turnaround, so you can be the first to
air. Catalog content in Interplay | MAM or PAM. Play back sequences
without having to flatten projects or transcode media, eliminating the
time spent on rendering files. And play media directly from
Avid NEXIS™ instead of transferring content to a playout device.
Get the power and intelligence you need
Maestro works in conjunction with all HDVG platforms to deliver the
best real-time 3D graphics rendering and performance in the market.
Not only does it support multiple live video feeds and flexible clip
playing capabilities, it offers the utmost in reliability and security.
Plus, it can now connect into MediaCentral’s user management
system, ensuring that only the right people have access to certain
content, while preventing the accidental airing of incorrect content.
Choose how to play out your content
You can trigger content in Maestro in a wide variety of ways, all of
which can be used simultaneously:
• Manually using the Maestro Controller interface
• Using a studio automation system such as Avid iNEWS | Command,
Viz Mosart, Sony ELC or Sonaps, Ross OverDrive, or Aveco ASTRA
• Using macros in the production switcher to recall predefined
graphics and effects
• Using SmartShot, a dedicated shot box that can be dynamically
programmed, and which features a display with information about
the selected graphics
• Avid MediaCentral Platform solutions, including MediaCentral |
UX, Interplay | Production, Interplay | MAM, iNEWS | Command,
and WorldMapper
With Maestro Media Engine you can now use a single tool to manage
and play both videos and graphics. Video elements can be added to
a rundown on a newsroom system or directly on Maestro—and they
can be cued and played with the same tools. This makes Maestro a
very powerful studio production tool, enabling a single operator to
control most of the content for an entire show. You can even connect
Maestro to Interplay | Production to browse, search, and play media
directly from your central storage (Avid NEXIS/ISIS).
Get reliable graphics asset management
Use Maestro standalone or in a multisystem environment, where its
graphics media asset manager (GMAM) provides essential tools
across all workflow applications. This includes ingest, cataloging,
proxy generation, custom metadata creation, advanced search, user
rights management, asset moving, hot folder ingest, and workflow
management. It also handles generic assets such as clips and
docs, providing a unique platform to manage every asset in your
production.
Interact with social media
Increase viewer engagement and interaction by bringing Social
Media Hub into your Maestro workflow. With it, you can retrieve,
filter, and moderate content—and download the associated media—
posted across a variety of social media channels, including Twitter,
Facebook, and Instagram. You can also publish content generated
for on-air broadcast to social media directly from Maestro.
