The Smart Remote 3 is our third generation remote for use with our base units.
remote has a color touch screen interface with an easy o use GUI, a USB
port for adding a keyboard or backing up to a USB storage device, build
in internet interface for easy updates and now runs on Windows 7.
operator now can adjust fan speed, control backlight intensity and
button backlight intensity. In addition to working with our New
Ultimatte 500 and Ultimatte 11 units, the Smart Remote 3 is backwards
compatible with theUltimatte 400, 9, 10 and HD.
The Ultimatte 11 HD/SD is the next generation,
multi-definition, blue/green screen, compositing device. If your studio
is set up for HD or SD, or you are planning to change from SD to HD, the
Ultimatte 11 HD/SD is the perfect real-time compositing device at the
The Ultimatte 11 HD/SD has been designed to address
the needs of virtual studios. With enhanced Matte controls, streamlined
Ambiance controls, in addition to complete FG and BG RGB color controls,
the Ultimatte 11 HD/SD “places” the FG subject in the new environment
in a very natural and realistic way.
Multi-Definition – SD/HD
Ultimatte 11 operates with SD and HD 4:2:2 formats. The unit is
automatically configured to the format of the signal connected to Input
1. (You cannot, however, mix HD and SD signals.)
Enhanced Matte Controls
Ultimatte 11 incorporates modified matte algorithms to extend the
ability of accurately separating the FG subject from the backing.
Matte Corrections and Sizing
addition to standard Matte Sizing, the Ultimatte 11 incorporates Matte
Correction, which analyzes all matte transitions, and applies the
appropriate amount of correction to the transitions which need
With Indirect and Direct lighting
features, the Ambiance controls in the Ultimatte 11 allow the “lighting”
and the colors of the new background to have a subtle or a strong
impact on the brightness and colors of the FG subject. Ambiance allows
the FG subject to be more naturally and realistically placed in its new
The Ultimatte 11 has
four inputs with active loop outputs. The user can assign which of these
inputs to be the Foreground, the Background or the external Matte.
Dual External Mattes
Ultimatte 11 allows the user to input two external Mattes (4:0:0)
simultaneously, and assign how each of these mattes will be used. One
external Matte could be used as a garbage matte (force BG), while the
second external Matte could be used as a holdout matte (force FG).
Alternately, both external Mattes can be multiplexed into one signal
(4:4), thus utilizing the full bandwidth of the SDI signal.
addition to the two FG+BG outputs and the Matte output, the Ultimatte
11 has a Monitor output. This output allows the user to view different
stages of the compositing process [FG+BG, FG, BG, Combined Matte,
Internal Matte, PRFG (processed FG)] without changing the viewed images
on the FG+BG and the Matte outputs. The Monitor output can also be used
as a “talent monitor” output, where the viewed image can be mirrored
(horizontally) to allow the talent to interact with the new background
in a more “natural” way.
