The Forward TT product is the “younger brother” of Forward TA. Just like Forward TA, Forward TT provides control over title overlays without limiting the number of title layers, but does not provide the ability to output full-screen video clips with sound and sound from files to the server output.
The product is supplied as a set of software and an I / O board (depending on the type of signal) or as a “turnkey” video server.
The product is installed onto a PC with a Windows operating system. The Forward TT title overlay server can work in multichannel mode i.e. graphically format several TV channels simultaneously.
The Forward TT product allows you to overlay titles onto a rebroadcast video on the server or work in the Fill + Key mode and use an external mixer to overlay titles.

What is it designed for

Choose the Forward TT product if you need to graphically format a broadcast without translating full-screen video with sound (advertisements, programs). It can be used to overlay local information when retranslating programs from a head station: crawl lines with regional advertisements, current weather and local time, TV station logos and other information.
This product is useful if you need to create an informational channel: a live studio signal, Skype-sessions, video clips and live video in picture-in-picture mode, text, graphics, animation, SMS chat and other informational material.
Examples of product use: news, weather forecast, info bulletins…
