Broadcast Pix announced the Slate 100 control panel. While the entry-level Slate 100 live video production system can also be controlled from an intuitive touch screen monitor or mouse and keyboard, the new optional control panel provides users with a traditional switcher interface.
It features a preview/program swithcer layout, including a next transition section for managing the system's three keyers. It also includes controls for the Slate 100's built-in CG, clip store, graphics and control systems, including a bank of buttons that corresponds to thumbnails on the multiview for easy selection of digital assets and device controls. While the Slate 100 can be controlled by one operator, the new panel also enables a separate graphics operator to use the system's keyboard and mouse for fast-paced live productions.
