Kansai Telecasting Corporation has developed a new CM Bank System called KIS-2. In this system we adopted A.P.C. controlls standby and start of groups of CM materials and the CM Bank System takes CM materials out of Magneto-Optical disks one by one to broadcast, so that we can easily cope with change of broadcasting format.
This system has the function Which entries LOGO Presented from sponser, maneges them as digital imaged data after linking with sponsor name, and has the object Which unifies data processing and control transmitting.
By way of measuring camera position for always, the computer graphics picture follows to the live camera view angle. The synthesized picture is just like as the actor is standing on actual studio. But this studio is virtual studio. For an example, we introduce to the first program putted to practical use to this new picture synthesis technique. The program name is "Nano Space" (Telecasted on 1992 Jan,Feb,Mar. This program explains the new technology of microscopic world.)
We have developed a new type of broadcasting equipment named the chase playback system, using a videodisk recorder (VDR) with 12 inches re--writable magnetic-optical disks. The VDR used in the system is equipped with dual heads which move independently. Therefore, the system realizes to begin to play back while it is recording. We introduce this system into use for the time differential broadcasting on weekly TV programs.
