Broadcast Pix to unveil Slate 100 control panel
At the NAB Show, Broadcast Pix will introduce the Slate 100 control panel, an optional control surface that provides users of the entry-level switcher with a traditional production switcher interface.
The Slate 100 features a classic preview/program switcher layout, including a next transition section for managing the system’s three keyers. There are also controls for the Slate 100's built-in CG, clip store, graphics and camera control systems, including a bank of buttons corresponding to thumbnails on the multiview.
While the Slate 100 can be controlled by one operator, the new panel also enables a separate graphics operator to use the system’s keyboard and mouse for especially fast-paced live productions, like sports.
