Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ has announced its Slate Upgrade Promotion, which allows current customers to trade in an existing Slate™ integrated production switcher for a new Granite™ or Mica™ system. The new systems offer a number of improvements over Slate, including native HD production, dual-channel clip servers that hold up to 180 hours of graphics and animations, and expanded production toolsets.

“Since 2006, Slate has been a solid integrated production switcher for thousands of video professionals around the world,” said Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “This trade-in promotion provides those customers with an easy upgrade path to native Trade-In PromotionHD production and enhanced workflow tools – and they can save more than $4,000.”

Granite is Broadcast Pix’s large-scale system with up to 22 SDI inputs and 12 SDI outputs. Mica, the company’s mid-size model, includes eight SDI inputs as well as six SDI and two DVI outputs. Both systems support eight channels of file-based content and can ingest cameras in multiple formats, as well as cloud-based content and data from RSS feeds, Twitter, and other sources. The systems ingest and scale all sources with low latency while maintaining constant lip sync.

Version 4.0 software for Granite and Mica features enhanced control of external devices such as robotic cameras, servers, recorders, and streaming appliances. Other improvements include virtual sets, an enhanced customizable multi-view, and ClearKey, a new, highly adjustable chromakey that delivers robust color correction and more realistic shadow and lighting effects.

The Slate Upgrade Promotion ends Dec. 31, 2014. For more information, contact a Broadcast Pix dealer or sales@broadcastpix.com.

Broadcast Pix Announces Integration Between Rundown Creator, Rapid CG Software

Broadcast Pix™ today announced that its Rapid CG software, which uses templates to easily create customized graphics, now integrates with Rundown Creator, a Web-based collaborative software platform for producing rundowns and scripts for live news and other programs. Information for lower-thirds and other graphics included in a Rundown Creator script can be exported to Rapid CG and automatically inserted into existing templates to simplify live production graphics. “Our integration with Rundown Creator saves time and reduces errors,” explained Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “Information for lower-thirds, over-the-shoulder graphics, and other graphic elements can be exported directly from Rundown Creator to Rapid CG as an XML file, and then automatically incorporated into templates in show order. That means the CG operator Rundown Creatordoesn’t have to input the data a second time or reorganize it.”
