Broadcast Pix upgrades Slate system

Broadcast Pix has enhanced the software for its Slate integrated production systems with new features and functionality. The latest version, V7.1, activates an optional DVI/VGA Input/Output (I/O) card on all Slate HD models to provide up to two DVI/VGA inputs and outputs, and it enhances Slate’s keying capabilities.

It also enables control of Panasonic robotic cameras and enhancements to Slate’s built-in multiview monitor.

The new DVI and VGA outputs allow Slate systems to directly feed a projector for presentation applications. Many next-generation projectors and plasma monitors accept HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) inputs, and the new DVI output enables a DVI-to-HDMI cable to be connected to provide HDMI output for 720p, 1080i or even 1080p.

V7.1 also provides luma key support in all Slate systems, which enables an input to be keyed on top of cameras, clips and animations. V7.1 also adds support for external video with key inputs from external graphics systems, in addition to keying all of the graphics, animations and clips included inside every Slate.
