Broadcast Pix ships Slate with Fluent Macros

Broadcast Pix has released Slate Version 7.3, a significant upgrade to its integrated live video production system. Version 7.3 features Fluent Macros, a macro memory system for the file-based switcher. It also provides enhancements to its Fluent Multi-View and its 2M/E Slate 5000 switcher control panel, as well as support for the new low-cost Slate 100 panel.

The Fluent Macros allow recall of a sequence of switcher moves with specific clip and graphic files with a single button push. They can also control robotic cameras, audio mixers and video servers. The new Fluent Macros Editor makes it easy to design with a graphical editor, and the macros can be executed through a player window or from the control panel. Applications include using animated wipe files for transitions in sports coverage, animations and graphic files with multibox talking head displays for broadcast news, and automated camera moves with graphic and clip files for city council meetings and other government productions.
