Trinity United Methodist Church switches with Broadcast Pix Slate

Trinity United Methodist (TUMC) in Ruston, LA, has selected a Broadcast Pix Slate 3016HD for live television broadcasts.

The Slate 3016HD powers the church’s broadcast of weekly services on Ruston Cox Cable Channel 4 and provides an output to one of the church’s main computers to produce a simultaneous Web stream for online services. TUMC purchased the unit and integrated it through Mission Service Supply, a Broadcast Pix dealer based in Louisiana.

Video introductions and weekly messages summarizing the day’s services are shot, edited and loaded onto the system and integrated into the show. The TUMC production staff is largely comprised of volunteers who donate their time once a week.

The Slate 3016HD switcher includes a 16 x 16 router. It provides 12 live inputs, two channels of clips and five graphic, and has eight auxiliary outputs for program, preview, clips or any live input. It has a built-in CG, clip store and multiview monitoring.

The switcher’s hybrid I/O supports: 1080i, 720p, SD, DVI and VGA, plus analog output in composite, Y/C and component, and 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, and it can output 16:9 and 4:3 shows simultaneously.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
