Features

Unlimited layering All running objects are mixed and blended to each other in real time, including animations. The more CPU power, the more objects can be layered simultaneously. This ensures an unlimited amount of object combinations and unprecedented visual variety.

Total on-air CG control Each and every CG object can be edited during the on-air session. Manual or automated changes of text contents, animation/rolling speed, position and properties can be done on-the-fly. Roll/crawl speed can follow a predefined speed curve. On-air changes can either be made directly to the onscreen running objects or on a dedicated preview output and then applied to the master output.
Slide Sequencer
Multiple graphics objects can be programmed to run simultaneously or sequentially on a single or multiple layers with just a few mouse clicks. Easy slide and layer management is provided by the intuitive Slide Sequencer.

TitleBox slaved to AirBox Several TitleBox channels on different workstations can be controlled externally by scheduling dedicated events in the AirBox playlist. All kinds of object control are available.

Dynamic data sources Dynamic text data coming from text, rich text, csv text, XML, RSS feeds, weather channels or ODBC-compliant databases can be linked to any text object and updated on-screen in real-time.
Graphics files can also be linked to graphics objects on-screen for instant changes.
OEM applications via TitleBox API TitleBox can run in the background, without its front-end interface, while all objects and slide actions are triggered by a third party OEM software, which sends its script commands to TitleBox locally or through the LAN.
