    The all new Ultimatte 12 is more than the world's best keyer, it's an advanced real time compositing processor designed for the next generation of broadcast graphics. Ultimatte 12 features entirely new algorithms and color science that deliver true photorealistic composites. You get incredible edge handling, greater color separation, amazing color fidelity and better spill suppression than ever before, even in dark shadow areas or through transparent objects such as windows! The high performance 12G-SDI design gives you the power to work in Ultra HD and HD with sub pixel processing for amazing image quality. Imagine presenting the weather, sports, news and entertainment in a cinematic quality environment, all composited in real time.

    Whether you're working in broadcast news, sports, traditional television and film production, or even magazine style entertainment programming, Ultimatte 12 has the quality for incredibly life-like composites that place your talent into any scene! Ultimatte 12 can work with both fixed cameras and static backgrounds, or automated virtual set systems. You can also use Ultimatte 12 to layer computer generated augmented reality objects into a scene, complete with realistic transparency that your talent can walk behind! Ultimatte 12 is also perfect for on set pre visualization in television and film production because it lets actors and directors see the virtual sets while they're shooting against a green screen.

    When you're working live and have multiple cameras shooting from different angles, it's common for the green or blue screen to suffer from variations. The keyers built into live production switchers use the same keying parameters for all cameras, which complicates keying and image quality because each camera sees the green screen a little differently. Ultimatte 12 eliminates these problems with incredible new technology at an affordable price so it's now possible to add keyers to every camera. That ensures you always get the best possible key! With the power of a dedicated keyer on every camera, Ultimatte 12 is perfect for live broadcast news, weather, sports, virtual studios and more!

    Adding translucent objects, such as colored or tinted glass and computer graphics, is virtually impossible with a traditional keyer. That's because you can't subtract a blue or green screen out of a semi-transparent colored object without changing the object's original color. Now, with Ultimatte 12, you get a revolutionary new "realistic" layer compositing mode that lets you add tinted objects on top of the foreground image for a whole new generation of realistic translucent glass look broadcast graphics. This means that when you look through the object, or your talent walks behind it, the tinted colors are accurately preserved, making the shot look completely realistic!

    When it comes to live production, you need to work fast. Ultimatte 12 features one touch keying technology that analyzes a scene and automatically sets over a 100 parameters so you get great keys without having to do a lot of extra work! The first step is to ensure your scene is well lit and that the cameras are properly white balanced, then you simply activate the auto key and Ultimatte will do all the work for you! One touch keying is dramatically faster and helps you accurately pull a key with minimum effort. That leaves your operators free to focus on the overall program with less distractions, while Ultimatte 12 takes care of the rest!
