LNN choose Pixel Power's Clarity SD

Pixel Power have announced that LNN, provider of transmission facilities for the UK's prime independent broadcasters, has purchased its Clarity SD system, adding to the Pixel Power products already in use.
LNN is using the Clarity SD to run holder cell animations on the ITV1 Network feed, which are then re-broadcast by all ITV1 regions. The holder cell animation is used in the evening peak viewing times. It is a dynamic graphic, comprising of a cell animation that animates into the screen and holds. Then a pop-out wipe animates from it to the right, and the text fades in to let the viewers see what programmes are coming up next, which it then animates in reverse sequence off screen.
LNN is investigating the use of full-screen cell animations to free server capacity for the transmission of menus while channels such as ITV2 are off-air.
Mark Stanway, Head of Transmission Operations for LNN, said: "We were seeking an easy-to-use, value-for-money solution to run the animations on ITV1. Clarity represented outstanding value for the investment, together with the ability to fulfill potential future requirements. The Windows-based control system is liked by all our TCs, and the support from Pixel Power has always been excellent. It made it an easy choice".
Clarity is a powerful, flexible multi-channel solution for the character generation, still-store and graphics requirements of television broadcasters and post-production companies around the world.
Offered in both standard and high-definition configurations, Clarity is the only character generator and graphics system available which can simulcast both standard and high definition from a single system. With multi-format support through flexible hardware configuration Clarity is offered in three basic software configurations addressing the differing requirements of the live-to-air, editing and graphics production.
