Broadcast Pix to Partner with Leitch

Broadcast Pix, a new Burlington, Mass-based company plans to integrate Leitch's Panacea routers with its new Broadcast Pix StudioSD production system. The company also announced an OEM relationship with Leitch, as well as new control software for the entire range of Leitch routers.

Broadcast Pix launched Studio, a workstation-based video production system with the tools of a control room at this year's NAB. The first product, StudioAD, features a unique tactile control system that enables one person to control and entire fast-paced studio, complete with on-the-fly switching, titles, logos, special effects and picture in picture. It has a control panel, 10-bit DV nonstop operation and scales to a network of operators in the studio, even remotely.

StudioSD is the SDI version of StudioAD and includes hard and soft control panels, workstation, DDR, Inscriber SG, switching, two Pinnacle DVEs, still store, logos, PowerPoint store, and the Leitch Panacea router, which provides six external SDI inputs and expands to 14 or more.

StudioSD ships this month.
