TV Graphic software

We are doing a series of half-hour broadcast programs for a TV in a virtual studio, you can see example:

We are looking for a solution to make graphics, videos etc. for the virtual monitor (the one that is next to talent)in studio that is visually showing what the talent is talking about. We can`t use power point, because we need support for looping video etc.

Can you recommend a software with which we can achieve something like this?
If you need more details about what we need, I`l write...

Do you need to do it all live? Or can you pre-record your show and composite in your graphics later?

If you can pre-record and have some extra time to edit, you can create graphics in Apple's Motion or Adobe After Effects and set it to loop in your editing software.

If you need to do everything live, you'll probably need to look into a Deko (Avid | Deko 3000) or a Vizrt (Program Production - system. Brand new, they are quite expensive, but they allow you to create looping graphics and enter text and other things. They're quite powerful machines, but there is a little bit of a learning curve you'll have to deal with in order to get the most out of them. Depending on your budget, you might be able to find a used machine. Hope this helps!

Mocha, which should come with After Effects, is capable of doing this as well as keeping it in the 3D/depth perspective (X, Y, Z since the TV is on an angle). That'd be your best bet imho. Just look up 'Mocha tutorials' on youtube to get a feel for what it would do & if that's what your looking for.

As Shawn said, this is if you're looking to do it in post, not live.
