Broadcast Pix to highlight 3G 1080p upgrade for production system
Broadcast Pix will showcase its new 3G Switcher Frame, a 3Gb/s 1080p upgrade for its Slate live video production systems, during IBC2009.
The new upgrade will provide simultaneous multidefinition SDI I/O for 1080p, 1080i, 720p and SD. It creates a 3G 1080p integrated production system, including switcher, multiviewer, 100-hour clip store, graphics stores, Inscriber character generator and Fluent workflow software.
The 3G upgrade helps future-proof Broadcast Pix systems with the emerging 1080p standard. The upgrade is a separate frame, which simplifies wiring, increases the amount of I/O and further enhances robustness. The frame accepts up to 20 SDI inputs plus another 16 video and key inputs of clips and graphics.
