    Ultimatte 12

    The Ultimatte 12 4K/UHD/HD is the next generation, multi-definition, blue/green screen, compositing device. If your studio is set up for UHD or HD, or you are planning to change from HD to UHD/4K, the Ultimatte 12 UHD/HD is the perfect real-time compositing device at the right price.

    The Ultimatte 12 4K/UHD/HD has been designed to address the needs of virtual studios. With enhanced Matte controls, streamlined Ambiance controls, in addition to complete FG and BG RGB color controls, the Ultimatte 12 UHD / HD places the FG subject in the new environment in a very natural and realistic way.

    Multi-Definition - UHD / HD

    The Ultimatte 12 operates with UHD and HD formats. The unit is automatically configured to the format of the signal connected to Input 1.

    Enhanced Matte Controls
    The Ultimatte 12 incorporates modified matte algorithms to extend the ability of accurately separating the FG subject from the backing.
    Matte Corrections and Sizing
    In addition to standard Matte Sizing, the Ultimatte 12 incorporates Matte Correction, which analyzes all matte transitions, and applies the appropriate amount of correction to the transitions which need modification.
    With Indirect and Direct lighting features, the Ambiance controls in the Ultimatte 12 allow the lighting and the colors of the new background to have a subtle or a strong impact on the brightness and colors of the FG subject. Ambiance allows the FG subject to be more naturally and realistically placed in its new environment.

    Four-Input Router
    The Ultimatte 12 has four inputs with active loop outputs. The user can assign which of these inputs to be the Foreground, the Background or the external Matte.
    Dual External Mattes
    The Ultimatte 12 allows the user to input two external Mattes (4:0:0) simultaneously, and assign how each of these mattes will be used. One external Matte could be used as a garbage matte (force BG), while the second external Matte could be used as a holdout matte (force FG). Alternately, both external Mattes can be multiplexed into one signal (4:4), thus utilizing the full bandwidth of the 12G-SDI signal.
    Monitor Outputs
    In addition to the two FG+BG outputs and the Matte output, the Ultimatte 12 has a Monitor output. This output allows the user to view different stages of the compositing process [FG+BG, FG, BG, Combined Matte, Internal Matte, PRFG (processed FG)] without changing the viewed images on the FG+BG and the Matte outputs. The Monitor output can also be used as a talent monitor output, where the viewed image can be mirrored (horizontally) to allow the talent to interact with the new background in a more natural way.
