Ultimatte keying for AR

Ultimatte 12 is the latest in Blackmagic Design’s line of real-time compositing processors for broadcast-quality graphics. It brings augmented reality (AR) elements into shots and features new algorithms and colour science, as well as edge handling, and greater colour separation and better spill suppression than its predecessor. The hardware is designed to be an ‘affordable’ option, making it suited to houses of worship on a budget.

The system’s 12G-SDI design allows users to work in HD for the time being, providing the ability to upgrade to UHD when ready. It is reportedly compatible with most SD, HD and UHD equipment, enabling the use of existing cameras. Ultimatte 12 also removes the problems caused by using multiple cameras for keying by adding dedicated keyers to every camera.

In regards to AR, Ultimatte 12 offers a new “realistic” layer compositing mode that has been developed to correctly add tinted objects on top of a foreground image. This, the manufacturer states, even works when talent or objects move behind the tinted object, accurately preserving the colours. Meanwhile, the system’s one-touch keying technology provides ease of operation by analysing a scene and automatically sets more than 100 parameters. Colour handling capabilities include new flare, edge and transition processing to remove backgrounds without interfering with other colours.

Control of Ultimatte 12 is via the Ultimatte Smart Remote 4 touchscreen remote that connects over Ethernet. Up to eight Ultimatte 12 units can be daisy-chained and connected to the same remote, which facilitates custom control with the Simply Telnet open, text-based protocol.
