The Avid Maestro plug-in is an ActiveX interface to graphics template that allows seamless integration of powerful real-time 3D graphics into the daily news workflow, including lower thirds, tickers, multi-screen video effects and more.
The ActiveX interface allows users to browse graphic templates, fill in data manually or retrieve it from an external data source, then preview the graphic element including animation and updated elements. The graphic can then be inserted into an ENPS running order.
Running orders containing Maestro graphic elements can be sent to multiple Maestro stations where they can be reviewed, modified, and played manually or triggered by a news automation system. Maestro allows users to choose the running orders that will be used and can send the status of items in a received running order back to ENPS.
