Features

A great looking production requires a complete set of tools. Carbonite’s unmatched power and easy-to-use feature set will get the job done.

MiniME

MiniMEs are a new class of operational ‘devices’ within the production switcher architecture. These are very powerful effects modules that include an independent Mixer and 2 Keyers: 1 standard Keyer and 1 specifically for DVE boxes. MiniME modules do not reside in a fixed position in the signal flow – they are not Upstream, Midstream or Downstream – they ‘float’ and can be used anywhere in the signal path. They reside in a resource ‘pool’ to be used anywhere in the system for additional dissolves and key layers, which are immediately released as soon as the transition or effect is complete. There are 4 MiniMEs in the system, but as they are automatically attached when required they can be assigned to multiple locations – and all four can be used simultaneously.

MiniMEs are completely independent of Carbonite MEs. All of Carbonite’s standard ME resources are available without compromise.

MiniMEs are FREE! Simply download the lastest version and they will be immediately available for use in any Carbonite system – regardless of age or configuration. All part of the fantastic customer service from Ross.
