News: CCW 2014: Broadcast Pix to Launch Trade-In Promotion, Demo Sports Bundle
(Billerica, Massachusetts--November 10, 2014) Broadcast Pix™ will launch its new “Cast Out Your Old Switcher” trade-in promotion at Content & Communications World 2014, which runs Nov. 12-13 in New York City (Booth 1258).
The company will also demonstrate the components of its new Sports Bundle, including the Granite™ X large-scale integrated production switcher, ReVue slow motion system, and FX3D real-time 3D graphics platform.
During the “Cast Out” promotion, Broadcast Pix will provide a free 500 control panel or $2,000 off the cost of a 1000 or 2000 control panel for customers who trade in any video production switcher toward the purchase of a new Flint™ LS, Mica™, or Granite system. Trade in any switcher with “cast” in its name and also receive free PixPlay software, which allows any Broadcast Pix integrated production switcher to provide slow motion control to a Blackmagic Design HyperDeck or AJA Video Systems Ki Pro disk recorder. The “Cast Out Your Old Switcher” promotion ends on Dec. 31, 2014, and all orders must be shipped by the end of the year.
Announced last month, the Broadcast Pix Sports Bundle is a tightly integrated package that provides the sophisticated switching, multi-camera replay, and 3D graphics expected by today’s sports viewers. It is anchored by the Granite X 2 M/E production switcher, with 22 SDI inputs, 12 outputs, seven channels of file-based inputs, six key layers, dual-channel clip server, and access to cloud-based content. Granite X also features a number of additional built-in production tools – including a customizable multi-view, CG, and file-based macros.
Developed in collaboration with strategic partner EditShare, ReVue offers variable speed playback of two or four channels of video in sync, and its compact controller includes a jog/shuttle wheel and intuitive controls for review and playback. FX3D creates a simplified end-to-end graphics workflow, complete with a library of royalty-free 3D objects and animations, easy import of 3D models from other programs, a full rendering engine for original 2D and 3D models, and a playout engine with template-based rundown controller and asset search capabilities.
“Our new ‘Cast Out’ promotion is a great opportunity to upgrade your control room with one of our integrated production switchers,” said Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “CCW is also a great venue to showcase our very affordable Sports Bundle integrated solution, which can deliver live productions with slo-mo and 3D graphics that rival the big sports networks.”
