The Click Effects Blaze system is a digital display control system that can provide content for multiple LED boards of different sizes all at the same time or independently.
What is it?
The Blaze user interface is very similar to the that of the CrossFire system. Once you know how to use CrossFire, you are well on your way to mastering our Blaze system.
The Blaze graphics engine is powered by the same platform found in our CrossFire system. This ultimately means that each LED board you control with the Blaze will have the full power of a dedicated graphics engine with features only found on broadcast character generators.
Create content to the exact size of the LED board on which it will be displayed on. For the highest possible quality, the Blaze output is 1:1 without the need for scaling.
List of Features
Easy-to-learn user interface
One of the many strengths of the Blaze product is the ease-of-use it offers its operators. From creating dynamically data-driven graphics to generating reports of played media, each function is quick, easy, and right where you expect it to be found.
Multiple Board Control
Unleash the true power of the Blaze with support for multiple board output. Ribbon fascias, ad panels, vomitory boards, scoring panels; control them all individually, with simultaneous playback. Make use of Blaze’s remotes, groups, and playlists to synchronize content across outputs and turn many boards into one well-oiled machine.
Choose between the looping option advertisements, or single play for player introductions. Make content seamlessly loop from one clip to the next with individual transitions between each element. Playlists are as flexible as they are easy to create.
Play Log Reports
When the production is done, a full and complete record of what has been played is helpful, and often mandatory for advertisers. Blaze is constantly keeping track of media item playback any time the system is operational. Create a report showing all media played, or only specific items, limited by time, and collect the data in PDF, XLS or CSV files.
Operators are often too busy reacting to live game play to keep track of key events that may take place during a presentation. Data Triggers help by taking the wheel and automatically playing back any media item based upon data being received from just about any data provider. Have the system automatically react when a player reaches a historical threshold or playback a sponsor graphic each time the score changes by 3 or more points. It's that easy!
Graphics? Yes, we do that, too. A fully comprehensive CG editor built-in right into Blaze gives you the ability to display text, images, crawls, data from statistical services, animations, lower thirds, the list goes on. And with Blaze's flexibility, these graphics can be as dynamic as you can dream up.
Why do you need Remote control?? Well, if you are like any of our other clients you will have multiple pieces of video equipment in your facility for your production. What if you could control them from a single interface? Wouldn't this change your approach to production? Using Blaze you can remotely control a vast number of switchers, matrix routers, and scalers natively. If we don't specifically work with a device, you will still have the ability to control it over TCP/UDP network packets that you can customize yourself.
Live Video Input
Make sure no one misses out on the action with live video. The flexibility of the Blaze platform gives tons of options for how and where to deliver live video to your audience.
Stats? Check! We've got this so well covered it is near impossible to list a statistical provider we don't support. Bring in stats for Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, Football, Soccer, Gymnastics, Swimming, Field Hockey, Car Racing, Horse Racing, 50-50 Raffles... the list goes on! But what happens when you need stats for a sport or event that doesn't have stats? With little effort Blaze can be made to read directly from a live feed from Excel - make your own data source.
Keeping up with a live event can be tough for the hearing impaired. Even with good hearing, the sounds of a live venue can make it easy to miss out. Make sure everyone can follow along with closed captioning. With support for industry standard captioning formats, keeping your audience informed has never been easier.
