The latest version of PIERO – version 16 – includes a host of feature improvements and adds support for 4K-UHD and HDR workflows over SDI. Integration with Ross Video’s Mira replay server has been enhanced, enabling operators to browse, preview and load clips from Mira directly in PIERO Broadcast’s user interface. In addition, the new Asset Manager opens up the ability to insert, mass-import/export and back-up all your PIERO visual assets. PIERO V16 also broadens out the number of sports supported, and American Football fans around the world will appreciate the new ‘Down and Distance’ feature that’s included in PIERO Live.  

In terms of feature enhancements, V16 sees the addition of new graphical arrow shapes, along with a Filter effect that enables parts of the playing field, pitch or court to be blurred or darkened to focus attention on a specific zone. New magnifier backgrounds also enable specific zones or players to be highlighted, with monochrome and blur backgrounds adding even more dynamism to the analysis of a passage of play or event. The new Range effect allows operators to count up or down a number range and link to an effect with a measurement component, like the Track. Finally, the Virtual Presenter feature is now even easier to set up, enabling presenters to be inserted into either a real or virtual scene in PIERO with dynamic shadows and audio passthrough.
