Crystal Vision will unveil several new features and a lower price for its Safire HD 2 chroma keyer at IBC this year. Amongst the new features will be an improved processing of difficult colours, such as a blue shirt on a blue screen. The Selectable Colour Suppression will allow the user to identify the blue shirt as part of the foreground, which will then be suppressed by the removal of the key colour from the foreground.
An increase in the chromakey gain helps Safire HD 2 to deal with poor light conditions.
Further improvements have been made to shadow processing. Virtual studio applications gain a great deal of realism with realistic shadows.
Safire HD 2 allows the user to set up a chroma key first and then adjusting the shadow enhancement separately, and with an increased degree of control.
Graphics capabilities have also been increased with the Luminescence key allowing the constant tweaking ofgraphics as light conditions change on the video.
