Once you have a perfectly timed test pattern generator, there’s even more that can be done visually to benefit those in the MCR or OB. IndentBox provides a visual cue on a test pattern and confers the ability to test all the visuals and coms before broadcasting to prevent the possibility of live, on air grief.
Text overlaid on a test pattern can be used to indicate what is about to be shown, where, and from what camera. This is extremely useful for those at the other end, where they have loads of feeds coming in. Even for the best and most experienced professionals, even more so with the advent of remote production requirements, it’s easy to get confused. So a visual cue on a test pattern that says exactly what’s in the can is a subtle, but substantial benefit. The content has yet to be captured and broadcast, but to test all the visuals and coms beforehand is invaluable.
Instead of having someone standing in front of a camera to take readings from, IdentBox provides you with a verified, perfect test pattern that in turn enables you to measure and confirm the veracity of your link before you even start sending video or audio signals down it. Knowing that your links are solid is a fundamental parameter of any broadcast, and we make it much easier, many times faster, and with complete reliability.
