Ventuz logoVentuz Technology is a company that makes a real-time graphics content creation, authorizing, and playout control software. Blackmagic Design is a manufacturer of creative video technology. The two have teamed up to create a new solution that can be used for 4K Ultra HD broadcasts.

Their solution was on display at NAB. It streams uncompressed 4K video from a HyperDeck Pro 4K SSD recorder or a 4K camera to the Ventuz real-time render engine via a DeckLink 4K Extreme capture and playout card. Ventuz layers channel branding graphics into the live video stream and immediately outputs it through the DeckLink 4K Extreme to a 4K display.

Together, they have created an affordable, off-the-shelf, streamlined solution for people who do on-air productions. The software/hardware integration enables live on-air broadcast graphics without pre-rendering.
