)-- New online store provides TV and video producers with affordable broadcast quality virtual sets and green screen backgrounds
. All of CG4TV’s exclusive products are available for immediate download in a variety of high definition, standard definition and web formats.
“I was blown away that for the price of one night in a hotel and just a click, I could buy a virtual set for an international show I was tasked with creating just weeks ago,” said David Waters, post production manager for This Week In Space with Miles O’Brien. Waters created the look of the new show and with sets and backgrounds from CG4TV, was able to launch it within days for former CNN anchor O’Brien.
The show also needed the portability of CG4TV's virtual sets since anchor Miles O’Brien travels the planet and can’t do the show from a costly studio week to week. “We have him use a fold-up green screen the size of a backpack, so basically he is carrying the entire multimillion dollar set in a backpack,” said Waters of Spaceflight Now.
“The biggest part of initiating a television program is finding the right aesthetic that fits the brand. It was quite clear which company had the best sets. CG4TV.com offered high-resolution images that were vibrant and crisp to fit the professional, polished image we were looking for. The downloadable files with alpha channels, easily enabled our video editor to insert our own footage into a final result of great depth and realism. The virtual set has really added to the production value and feel of the program,” said Eyewitness Everett producer Stephen M. Kessinger.
CG4TV.com’s online store also provides TV and video producers with affordable computer generated animated backgrounds and royalty-free stock footage. The sets and other 3D graphics products can be downloaded in a variety of high definition, standard definition and web formats. To celebrate the store’s opening, CG4TV will discount all items by 15% until March 30th, 2010. Use coupon code PRA10.
"Custom-made videorealistic broadcast quality 3D animations and virtual sets tend to be very expensive. Our goal is to change this by offering high quality 3D graphics on a modest budget. If you do not find what you are looking for in our catalog, we will produce it for you at a fraction of the pricing of competitors… as long as we can offer it to others in our store. While this means sharing the production cost with someone else, it does mean you get to be the first to use it." - says CG4TV's Co-Founder, President and Lead Designer, Philippe Van Nedervelde.
