HP builds flypack with Broadcast Pix HD switcher for Sundance
Reseller and integrator Snader and Associates sold a Broadcast Pix Slate 1000HD switcher to Hewlett-Packard (HP) for use at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The Slate 1000HD was used to produce interviews and commentary in 1080i for broadcast on television and the Internet as well as for local uses at the festival.
Snader and Associates and Broadcast Pix helped HP build a flypack around the Slate 1000HD switcher, which served as the heart of the HP Broadcast Studio in Park City, UT. In its role as the sponsor of Sundance, HP offered free access to broadcast equipment so independent filmmakers could perform interviews and create promotional material. The studio was built in California, torn down and shipped to Park City where it was rebuilt for use in the Kimball Arts Center.
