Pixel Power ActiveX Plug-In provides tight graphics integration

The company’s Control Centre helps integrate the Clarity family of graphics systems into an automated news production environment.
Compatible with both Avid iNews and the AP's ENPS newsroom automation systems, Pixel Power’s ActiveX plug-in is a lightweight front-end to the graphics database hosted on the Pixel Power Control Centre server.

The Pixel Power Control Centre is a hardware and software approach to integrating the Clarity family of graphics systems into an automated news production environment.

The ActiveX plug-in provides tight, visual integration of the graphics content of a newscast with the newsroom’s desktop working environment. It allows newsroom staff to search for and fill out predefined Clarity templates.

Once a template is selected, a small form is presented allowing the user to complete the fields. As each field is entered the plug-in presents a thumbnail preview. Clicking on the thumbnail displays a full resolution preview of the completed graphic. Dragging the preview to the story places the completed template into the story.

The plug-in also provides tools for quickly searching through the library of graphics available for air. Both text and thumbnail views of the still library are presented. Staff may search for stills by keyword, number and network location. By dragging the still to the story operators can add the still to a rundown.
