Management of graphics and audio/video sources

XeditingCG is the graphical software of the TV channel. Thanks to an intuitive interface with realtime preview it is possible to draw or insert graphic elements, position and resize them on the screen via drag-and-drop and associate placeholder to automatically change the text elements drawing from the metadata of the videos on the air or automatically recall created objects. In addition, XeditingCG allows you to define multiple scenes that show TV audio/video sources from acquisition devices, screen capture and NDI.

Visual editor with real-time preview

The XeditingCG preview pane allows you to select sources, individual graphic elements or groups with the mouse alone, position them on the screen and resize them keeping the original proportions. It is possible to enable the display of the “safe area” margins to guarantee a correct display of the graphics on all the monitor.

Creating scenes and audio/video sources

It is possible to create different scenes, each containing graphics and audio/video sources. Each source can be placed on the screen with the possibility of creating boxes, picture in pictures and effects. Each scene can be recalled manually or based on the videos on the air: it is possible, for example, to open the cameras facing the speakers in full screen when the TV program bases are played.

XeditingCG is included in all versions of Xautomation TV and available on all computers with an active Xautomation TV license.

Secondary computers that use XeditingCG must communicate on the same network as the main computer and must connect to the main SQL Server database. Make sure there are no softwares or configurations that could interfere with the regular reading of data on the network.

A registered copy of the software can be used on one machine only. The license is not personal and therefore not linked to an individual user, but can be used by different users working on the same workstation. In case of a license purchased for a single station, Xdevel offers a second license free of charge to be used on another machine as a back up. For security reasons, Xdevel strongly  recommends installing the second license on a back up workstation. If you want to use the software on more than one workstation, you must purchase additional licenses based on the number of machines on which you want to install and use the software.

The supply of products and services is always accompanied by a high level of technical support. Support services are included in all subscription plans and are provided through ticketing system, email, telephone or through remote desktop sessions.
