Liberty is a comprehensive paint, animation and compositing software package for Windows NT/2000/XP as well as SGI Workstations. It is used globally in hundreds of major broadcast and post-production facilities, and has been a standard graphics design package for over a decade.

Seamless Integration
Liberty has been architected to integrate seamlessly into broadcast and post-production environments, in which an application's asset management features and I/O capabilities are as important as its tool set.

Liberty has been designed as a broadcast graphics tool by and for broadcast graphic designers. General-purpose paint applications were originally intended for print and web applications, and are cumbersome in a Broadcast environment. Liberty fits right in.

Plugin Support
Additionally, Liberty V8 features support for Photoshop 5.5 filters and After Effects plug-ins. It features dozens of paint, mask, image adjustment, and text tools, and an unmatched I/O feature set.

Turnkey Options
You may purchase Liberty as a standalone application and install it on your own PC. We also offer the Liberty Reality Studio, a complete turnkey solution packaging LibertyRS software with options for an integrated DDR, a video card for realtime show and video captures, and an LCD tablet input device.
