Welcome to the Next Generation of Graphics
Every day, visual storytellers in broadcast, news, sports, entertainment, house of worship and corporate communications work to elevate the ways they engage their viewers. Tools for creating, augmenting and branding footage are proliferating — and XPression puts them all at your fingertips.
As a comprehensive graphics solution, XPression equips operators with real-time motion graphics capabilities. Built from the ground up to be a 3D system, XPression also fully supports 2D workflows, and seamlessly composites real-time 3D animation with media assets from today’s hottest design applications.
Real – Time
XPression uses intelligent caching to provide real-time access to content so there is no lag between keyboard entry and system operation.
XPression employs clean user interfaces, logical menus, and controls based on other widely deployed creation tools, shortening any learning curve.
XPression handles it all: SD, HD, in SDI or IP, UHD/4K in Quad-Link or 12G Single-Link SDI. XPression software is resolution independent and output card agnostic.
XPression Studio and BlueBox supports SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE ST 2022-7 and SMPTE ST 2110. XPression Studio with SMPTE ST 2022-6 is deployed at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the world’s first all-IP stadium!
XPression has always been available as a software only solution all the way up to a turnkey hardware product. From a portable configuration all the way to purpose-built hardware, there is an XPression platform that suits all configurations.
XPression is in use around the world, in multiple languages. Designers have embraced XPression as a design tool, making it their entry point into creative design and animation development, rather than starting in a desktop suite.
