    Multiple HD Formats

    The Ultimatte 12 HD operates with numerous HD formats, from 720/60p to 1080/60p. The unit is automatically configured to the format of the signal connected to Input 1.

    Latest Algorithms and Color Science

    Advanced real-time compositing employs new algorithms and advanced color science, along with improved edge handling, color separation, color fidelity, and spill suppression techniques, to generate photo-realistic composites in high definition, all in real time.

    Multiple Productions

    This advanced compositing technology is designed to cater to a wide range of productions, including news, sports, narrative film and television, and entertainment. It is ideal for productions that utilize fixed cameras, static backgrounds, or virtual set systems. With the ability to layer augmented reality objects, talent can pre-visualize virtual sets when using a green screen, adding to the creative potential of the production.


    The Ultimatte 12 HD now features new technology that allows for accurate keying parameters to be added to multiple cameras, while taking into account slight variations in camera positions.  This feature ensures consistent and accurate compositing across all camera angles, saving time and enhancing the overall quality of the production.

    Realistic Augmented Reality

    The Ultimatte 12 HD introduces a new "realistic" layer compositing mode that enables you to add translucent or tinted objects on top of the foreground. This feature offers more creative possibilities by providing a natural-looking integration of the added objects into the scene, thereby enhancing the realism of the final composite.

    One-Touch Keying

    One-touch keying dramatically lessens the time it takes to pull a key, using the auto key to set over 100 parameters once your set is well lit and white balanced.

    Shadows and Transparent Areas
    The Ultimatte 12 HD boasts improved flare algorithms that can effectively eliminate green tinting and spill from almost any source, resulting in true-to-life virtual environments that look impressively realistic. Even when using shadows or transparent objects with reflections, the advanced algorithms enable seamless compositing that enhances the overall quality of the production.

    Monitor Outputs

    Ultimatte 12 HD has a Monitor and a Program output. The Monitor 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.
