Seattle Public Schools TV remodels studio

Seattle Public Schools TV has remodeled its studio facility to support programming that includes live broadcasts of the city’s school board meetings. The station’s revamp includes the installation of a Broadcast Pix 2000 digital switcher, which provides built-in CG, still store, clip store and DVE capability. In addition to broadcasting school board meetings, the new studio is also being used to produce training videos for the school district.

Greg Hughes, station manager, said that Seattle Public Schools TV uses a variety of untrained personnel to operate the system, so it had to be intuitive.

The Broadcast Pix 2000 switcher includes a rack-mounted workstation with a hard-panel control panel and a breakout box. It includes a digital switcher with four keyers, Inscriber CG, clip stores, still stores, logo generator, three DVEs and provides SDI and analog I/O, including composite, Y/C and component. Options include camera and video server control.
