Control and direct content
Interact directly with graphic elements
As presenters touch objects on screen, they can control how their story unfolds by triggering different events within the graphic’s templates. For example, meteorologists could highlight areas of rainfall on a map by tapping cities that then change color or display a rain graphic to provide visual feedback. They could then use gestures to zoom in and out of the map, set an animation in motion, swipe to a new display, draw on screen, and more to further their forecast.
Integrate live web content
Incorporate social media, news, and other website sources into your presentations with the Maestro | Interactive (formerly Interact) web browser interface. While on air, presenters can display and interact with live webpages from any Windows-based web browser, including Facebook, YouTube, news websites, and more to lend credibility and visual richness to their report.
Add realism to your design
Whether your presenters are rotating, scaling, moving, dragging, dropping, tapping, holding, drawing, or highlighting an interactive element on screen, you can bring a sense of reality to their interaction and motion. That’s because Maestro | Interactive enables you to add physical properties, such as mass and inertia, to elements, giving a new level of realism to the interactive graphics.
Get freedom of movement with iPad
With the free OradTouch app, presenters can use their iPads to control the production content and story flow wirelessly, without having to be tethered to a desk or studio screen. And because the app provides true multitouch capabilities, multiple presenters can manipulate objects on screen and trigger different events within the graphic’s templates—with real-time visual feedback—simultaneously and independently.
Make studios and walls interactive
When using Maestro | Interactive on air to view content on a touchscreen, viewers only see you interacting with the onscreen graphics. The creation and the controller preparations are identical to preparing “standard” interactive graphics, colored in blue or green, so that the control content is visible to the presenter, but keyed out during production. This makes it easy to create and interact with more compelling and immersive environments, boosting your production value.
