How to Configure the CPN-6000 Live Streaming Annotation System for Broadcast

Publish date:

Tucson, Ariz.-based Boeckeler Instruments Inc. recently published a white paper for broadcasters on the Pointmaker CPN-6000 live streaming annotation system, the manufacturer's most appropriate model for use in broadcast applications. Like its predecessors, the CPN-6000 features help talent draw audience attention to image details, enhancing both viewer interest and comprehension. What's special in this model for broadcasters is the ability to annotate on streaming video from an iPad, which can also be used as a preview monitor. This model's smaller 1 RU footprint is also a bonus in tight spaces like helicopters or trucks. The paper describes the converters needed upstream and downstream from the annotation system.You can download it here.

Pointmaker officials say that they have tested the CPN-6000 recently in major broadcast studios and trucks, and there is no loss of quality in either the annotations or source video after these conversions are made.
