Broadcast Pix unveils SLATE 100 production switcher

Broadcast Pix has unveiled SLATE 100, a new system that brings new live production opportunities to facilities with limited budgets.

SLATE 100 merges a video production switcher with a computer workstation, which brings the company’s user-friendly, studio-in-a-box design to small broadcasters and ancillary broadcast and mobile studios.

The heart of the system is the new Broadcast Pix Slate board, a professional switcher on a computer card. It lives inside the workstation, where it is closely coupled to the system’s clip stores, still stores and Inscriber character generator.

The system retains the familiar control panel layout of a traditional switcher, with full comprehensive preview capability. Nonstop, on-air operation enables video to stay on-air even if the workstation stops working. It produces 10-bit-quality video, including digital SDI and analog YUV, S and composite.

The SLATE 100 mixes up to six live inputs with up to two clips and five channels of graphics from its included workstation. The live inputs support both timed and asynchronous inputs for a wide range of cameras, video tape recorders, clip servers, DVD players and other sources.
