Pixel Power Ships Graphite 2 Character Generator

(September 13, 2001)
Pixel Power is shipping its Graphite 2 character generator internationally, following its preview at NAB. Based on the hardware introduced at IBC 2000 on the company's Collage 2 systems, Graphite 2 offers speed and flexibility, along with the expandability inherent in a new hardware platform.

Graphite 2 is a dedicated proprietary broadcast character generator and graphics system with a tightly integrated expandable uncompressed video clip store. As James Gilbert, Pixel Power's Commercial Director explains, "With Graphite 2 broadcasters can significantly enhance their on-air look by using
uncompressed animated backgrounds and lower thirds, without the connectivity and control problems associated with multiple pieces of equipment."

Supplied as a complete turnkey system or as an upgrade to any existing Graphite or Collage system, Graphite 2 is offered in two basic configurations to cover the differing requirements of the play-out and graphics production areas. Graphite 2 also has a number of options, which enable the system to be configured to meet customers' specific operational, technical and budgetary

The Graphite 2 range fits effortlessly into the broadcast system,
communicating with a wide range of third party products. In addition to interfaces with all the major station automation systems including Omnibus, Harris, Sony, Encoda, Pro-Bel and Philips, Graphite 2 also operates with newsroom systems such as ENPS and iNews.

Graphite is already the cornerstone of the on-air look at Disney Channel in California, CNA in Singapore, 360media in the UK, HTV in the UK and Telecinco in Spain. Graphite was also recently used for the 2001 live grand final of Granada Television's prime time "Stars in Their Eyes" talent show.
