Video animation equipment with audio generated input signals

Vorrichtung zur Videoanimation mittels Erzeugung audiobeeinflußter Videosignale


The invention concerns a video animation device based on the production of audio-influenced video signals. An audio signal (5) is applied to the input of an audio signal processing unit (1) and a frequency-dependent, digitised control signal (11) which can be selected via a controllable switch (9) is produced. The control signal is fed into a modified control input (12) of a digital video special-effect (13) which is provided with a control PC (16) and at least one video input (14) and one video output (15). Starting from the control PC, various frequency bands of the applied audio signal are captured and alteration of the applied external video signal is carried out in accordance with the digitised audio values.
