Broadcast Pix to Intro Scripts at NAB 2006Scripts is first to combine switcher memories with recall of graphics, clips and camera moves (January 30, 2006)
Broadcast Pix Inc. today announced the introduction of Scripts, advanced memory software for its line of production switchers. Scripts will be shown for the first time at NAB2006 (Booth SL2400).
Unlike conventional switchers, to which a graphics system and clip stores must be added, Broadcast Pix switchers have those devices built-in. Scripts takes advantage of this tight integration by recalling not only key settings, but also the exact clips, titles and animations to fill the keys. Scripts can be extended to control camera position and lens, as well as video servers. For example, with Scripts, a single-button push can select a camera, position it, bring it to air, fade on its specific title, and then fade it off.
?To attempt to achieve the power of Scripts with a conventional switcher, you need to add a CG, still store, clip stores, format converters and camera control system, and then layer on top of that an expensive, cumbersome software environment, said Broadcast Pix President Ken Swanton. ?And when youre finished, youve invested a lot in an intricate system that requires months to install and learn. With Broadcast Pix, Scripts is simply another free part of an integrated system that is a fraction of the cost, quick to install, much easier to learn, and provides more creative power for the operator.
Scripts is a standard feature of new Broadcast Pix switchers and is a free download for existing customers. Scripts is especially beneficial for television studios that are often short-handed, including broadcasters, cable, entertainment, corporate, mobile, education, faith and government studios. Scripts software will be available at NAB 2006.
