Avid has updated two graphics products based on technology it absorbed as part of its acquisition of Orad last year.

The 4Designer graphics authoring tool is for creating 2D and 3D motion graphics, while Maestro gives broadcasters options for management and playout of graphics and animations.

New features include the Maestro Media Engine, which supports video ingest and playout, plus native user rights management, templates and repurposing of graphics.

Both tools work with the Avid MediaCentral Platform, as well as third-party news and editing applications.
