Virtual System Platform


FOR-A’s virtual system video platform is a video platform intended specifically for building a virtual system/RCG system. This platform provides substantially improved performance for PC-based real-time graphics solutions, and it also enables the adding of optional broadcast-quality chroma key functions for building a practical and compact system. Combined with the Brainstorm eStudio virtual system software, this platform dramatically boosts the capabilities of real-time graphics, expands the boundaries of creativity, and supports the creation of even more appealing content.
