Broadcast Pix 2000 Digital Switcher Selected By Seattle Public Schools TV As Part Of Major Studio Remodel

Built-In CG, Still Store, DVE And Intuitive Design Make The Grade For Live, Local Broadcasts (November 13, 2006)

DMN Newswire--2006-11-13--When remodeling its studio facility, Seattle Public Schools TV, the channel that runs live broadcasts of the citys school board meetings, selected a Broadcast Pix 2000 digital switcher based upon its 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.  

?Two of its biggest selling points for us were the programmability of the switcher and its ease of use, said Greg Hughes, Station Manager, Seattle Public Schools Television. ?We have a variety of untrained personnel operating the system so it must be extremely intuitive, which it clearly is.  The internal CG, stills, clips, and DVE moves have enabled me to produce a much more professional looking program. And because of its all-in-one approach, one person can now cover the meetings or training events. Its much easier to operate than having a separate CG system. Plus, the service weve experienced through Broadcast Pix has been superb. Theyve been very responsive whenever weve called.  

Broadcast Pix is a premier manufacturer of live switchers for the broadcast market with such high-profile customer as CBS, ABC, Fox and PBS, as well as large corporations including Microsoft, HP, Cisco and Morgan-Stanley.  

 

The Broadcast Pix 2000 switcher includes a rack-mounted workstation with a hard-panel control panel and a Break-out-Box.  It includes a digital switcher with four keyers, Inscriber Character Generator, clip stores, still stores, logo generator, three DVEs, and it provides SDI and analog I/O, including composite, Y/C and component. Options include control of cameras and video servers.
