Broadcast Pix Slate HD switcher Broadcast Pix showed their HD versions of the expanded Slate switcher family. The new Slate HD switchers provide an easy and cost effective way to create compelling live HD video. Their file-based architecture streamlines live production workflow by completely integrating the included switcher, CG, clip stores, still stores and monitoring while seamlessly networking them with content from edit bays. The first Slate HD switcher was used at the Sundance Film Festival.

Each of the three new Slate HD models includes: a switcher with up to six keyers and DVEs, multi-view monitoring, a Harris Inscriber CG, and a clip store. The switchers’ hybrid I/O supports: 1080i, 720p, SD, DVI and VGA, plus analog output in composite, Y/C and component. It can add: HD and SD analog inputs and 1080p output. Both 16:9 and 4:3 content can be mixed while preserving the native aspect ratio of each element.
