With its simple graphic user interface, the user can easily control all graphic parameters such as: line colours, intensity, height, width, logos, and textures.
TrackVision FDL supports both HD and SD productions with all major HD formats supported. Another key advantage of TrackVision is its embedded chroma keyer that allows the graphics to be perfectly displayed on the pitch even in difficult lighting conditions.
Working with TrackVision FDL means minimal setup and calibration time, so in the span of few minutes the system is ready to use. This is particularly important in live productions where preparation time may be limited.
