Broadcast Pix to Introduce New Software for Switcher Line

Broadcast Pix will introduce Scripts, an advanced memory software for its line of production switchers at NAB2006.

The Scripts software is targeted towards the graphics capabilities integrated into Broadcast Pix switchers. Scripts not only recalls key settings, but also exact clips, titles and animations to fill the keys. It can also be extended to control camera position and lens, as well as video servers. For example, with a single push of a button, the user can select a camera, position it, bring it to air, fade on its specific title and then fade it off.

“To attempt to achieve the power of Scripts with a conventional switcher, you need to add a CG, still store, clip stores, format converters and camera control system, and then layer on top of that an expensive, cumbersome software environment,” said Ken Swanton president of Broadcast Pix. “And when you’re finished, you’ve invested a lot in an intricate system that requires months to install and learn. With Broadcast Pix, Scripts is simply another free part of an integrated system that is a fraction of the cost, quick to install, much easier to learn, and provides more creative power for the operator.”

Broadcast Pix will be in Booth SL2400.
