Food for
Thought

  "It's the right
 direction to go in.
 We're a society that
 is absorbing
 information in a way
 that we never
 imagined we would
 be doing. We have a
 whole new
 generation of news
 viewers that have
 been trained on the
 Internet..."

- Teya Ryan, EVP and
general manager of
CNN Headline News


 


  "The Sept. 11
 terrorist attacks
 took the use of
 crawls to a new
 level. Just about
 every major news
 network--with the
 exception of ABC
 News--launched a
 continuous crawl to
 spit out breaking-
 news developments
 as they occurred."


- Broadcasting & Cable,
12/3/2001


 


  "Crawls are good
 journalism when
 they augment a
 program in progress
 with important news
 told in context... "


- Jill Geisler, Poynter
Institute

  Runs on Standard, Inexpensive Hardware Components:

The items below are generally provided by the customer and aren't bundled with the TV-Ticker system. WorldFlash Software can provide a separate proposal for any necessary hardware.

TV-Ticker requires a standard PC running Windows 2000 or Windows XP, and a fully featured video card such as the ATI All-In-Wonder, Matrox Marvel, or NVidia "Personal Cinema" AGP cards that include S-Video input and output connections.
  • Desktop PC, 64Mbytes+ Memory, 866Mhz or faster Intel Pentium or AMD Athlon class processor
  • Video card: ATI All-In-Wonder, NVidia "Personal Cinema" models
  • Modem or network card for connection to the Internet via standard ISP
TV-Ticker does not require a separate "scan-converter" box to achieve broadcast-ready output. An external frame-buffer or TBC (Time Base Corrector) unit may be required to properly gen-lock with your station's video signal.

How does this work? TV-Ticker leverages the power of the latest generation of silicon miracles from NVidia (GeForce4), Matrox (G450) and ATI Technologies (RV200) to actually do all the work required to make the electronic round-trip from Analog World to the High-res Digital Universe and back. The software-generated news crawl is overlayed onto the incoming analog studio feed by the same inexpensive (< $150) component. HDTV support (coming soon) entails replacing the video card with a newer generation, when that feature becomes available on-chip.
