April 21, 2004

by -- Inscriber Technologies

Las Vegas, NV – April 19, 2004 - Inscriber, a leading global provider of broadcast solutions, announced today that the CBC/Radio-Canada, Canada’s national public broadcaster, has chosen Inscriber’s flagship character generator, Inca Studio, as its new national standard for character generators.

Inca Studio is part of Inscriber’s Inca series of professional broadcast graphics solutions. Based on Inscriber’s innovative Inca architecture, Inca Studio provides broadcasters with complete freedom to create visually stunning on-air graphics with multiple layers of independently controlled graphics, clocks, logos, real-time element transitions, real-time organic dissolves, page formatted rolls and crawls and more. As with Inscriber’s complete line of character generators, Inca Studio fully supports the increasingly demanding automation workflow environment of broadcasters.

The CBC/Radio-Canada implementation will initially be for up to 50+ Inca systems, which will be used in live CG operations in studios and trucks, under the control of News Automation Systems, and to replace older CGs and branding insertion equipment.

“We were committed to upgrading our existing character generators, a decision we did not take lightly. After a thorough review of different vendors we were ultimately impressed with the sophisticated technology and functionality of the Inca architecture”, says Ray Carnovale, Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer for the CBC. “The flexible, open platform can be readily upgraded, allowing us to easily and successfully adapt to emerging broadcasting trends.”

“CBC/Radio-Canada is a leader in North American broadcasting and we are extremely proud to have been selected as its new standard for character generators. With Inca Studio, CBC/Radio-Canada will have a complete solution to provide them the creative freedom to move their on-air look to the next level”, says Dan Mance, President of Inscriber. “It’s a solution that will see them well into the future.”

Deliveries of the Inca Studio systems to CBC/Radio-Canada begin this month.
