composition:builder enables TV stations to easily create professional looking real- time graphic templates for just:live and just:play.

Powerful Graphics Development

composition:builder enables you to create professionally looking realtime graphic templates for news, weather, stock exchange, sports and other broadcast applications. These realtime graphics can directly be used in just:play and just:live.

Customize on Air

Customize your realtime graphics On Air or use external sources (XML, RSS, images and text files) to update your graphics manually or automatically.

We love XML. And XPath.

Out-of-the-box support for XML files, coupled with the powerful XPath query language enables data extraction from local or networked files.

Sample Content Included

composition:builder ships with a package of pre-designed templates which can be used and modified for free. Drop them into any graphics layer in just:play or just:live to play them out concurrently with any video clip.

Stop Frames for Dynamic Graphics

The powerful “stop frame” functionality allows you to dynamically extend the duration of graphic templates, while maintaining the individual duration of animations within the template.

Web-Based Graphics Control

Changes to graphics and information sources can be easily made during playout and brought to air in realtime – even with remote, web-based customized control interfaces which can be used with any web-browser (on desktop and mobile devices).


composition:builder is designed to interface with Apple’s Quartz Composer technology, enabling you to create your own custom components in Quartz Composer to extend your graphic templates.

Native Integration

composition:builder graphics are interpreted natively and rendered on-the-fly by ToolsOnAir’s playout engine, allowing for a realtime preview of graphic templates in the just:play and just:live user interface.
