France Télévisions Picks Ross Video’s XPression Character Generators
As graphics have become complex, France Télévisions has renewed all character generators used in its regional centers. To do so, the company chose Ross Video’s XPression.
XPression exists in three models using Matrox boards on a PC: XPression Designer (design), Player (sequencer), and Studio (design and sequencer). The CGs are delivered in a Ross frame with broadcast connectors. For editing stations, there are plug-ins for Avid News Cutter.
The deal, which was won by Ross’s French distributor, SAV, covers 70 CGs and 40+ plug-ins.
France Télévisions is the main French state broadcaster, with four national programs and 25 local programs.
