As the IBC 2017 is coming in just three weeks we are going to unveil a few improvements which might be found interesting by the market. The first of them is an integration of the Stream Circle engine with the Adobe Animate CC HTML5 rendering.

As presented recently Stream Circle is capable to show and animate a generic HTML content using a standard HTML rendering engine tightly integrated into its rendering pipeline. Nevertheless a generic HTML is not what an experienced TV graphics editor may expect when designing a TV channel branding. Following the developments of the Adobe Animate CC product and its capability to export into the HTML5 environment together with an animation support we are providing tools and templates for easy integration of Adobe Animate CC HTML5 graphics into our environment.

The graphics editing workflow is composed from four easy and intuitive steps:

  • Edit an animation in the Adobe Animate CC product using HTML5 canvas presets:AdobeAnimateEditor_20170825
    All options available in the HTML5 canvas preset as well as unlimited number of images edited externally can be used to prepare the graphics and its animation. You may also use dynamic texts to create placeholders for parameter based texts in your presentation. Publishing creates HTML, JS and image files to be uploaded into the media content of the Stream Circle server.
  • Upload the files into the Stream Circle media content library.HTMLMediaContent_20170825
  • Insert secondary events using the HTML graphics file into the plan using the new secondary event editor.AdobeSecondaryEvent_20170825
    You may also specify dynamic parameters of the graphics template (like texts) using the secondary event editor to modify the graphics according to the content of your plan. The Adobe secondary event template hides all details to initialize and run the Adobe generated graphics in your schedule.
  • Run the schedule and see the graphics in your output using the Stream Circle multiviewer software (showing in this post the HTML graphics engine output, the videoserver feed and the final composed feed):

The Adobe integration workflow together with other interesting stuff will be presented at our IBC 2017 stand. Do not forget to put a visit in our stand 3.C18 into your calendar. We are pretty confident it is worth your time.

Request a meeting or demo with us at IBC showfloor or just walk in and enjoy.
