You can integrate your Flowics graphics into your workflow with video signals IP using Crystal Vision Web Page Keyer which is an IP/SDI web page keyer app.
The M-WEBKEY allows the video IP input to be set as the background source, with the overlaid foreground source and key signal (which defines the graphic’s location and transparency) coming from the web page URL. The M-WEBKEY will render the web page at the correct resolution and frame rate for the video signal and then key the graphic on to the video.
