Broadcast Pix Demonstrates Mobile Roadie, New Show Transfer Software at InfoComm 2015

Broadcast Pix Demonstrates Portable Production System,

New Show Transfer' Software Utility at InfoComm 2015

Billerica, Massachusetts May 27, 2015 Broadcast Pix will demonstrate its new Roadie portable integrated production switcher, as well as new software upgrades that include a Show Transfer utility and support for embedded audio across its Flint , Granite , and Mica product lines, at InfoComm 2015 (Booth 3621), which runs June 17-19 in Orlando, Fla.

With built-in HD streaming and recording, Roadie's end-to-end production workflow streamlines live production on location for a single operator or small staff. Ruggedized for location work, Roadie weighs about 20 pounds and features a durable aluminum alloy chassis with a built-in handle for easy transport.

When we developed Roadie, our primary goal was to create an affordable system that could take the abuse of location work, said Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. It's more than just a bare bones switcher offered by our competitors. Roadie features our patented Fluent Control toolset to create great multi-camera live productions in a tough, compact package.

The multi-format production switcher includes four video inputs, eight internal channels (two clip and six graphics), one SDI/HDMI/analog out, and four balanced (1/4-inch TRS) and two AES (BNC) audio I/O. With built-in Wi-Fi and network inputs, Roadie easily integrates cloud-based content into live productions and automatically ingests and scales sources while maintaining lip sync. The system also features an audio mixer, file-based macros, dual clip players, CG, multiple DVEs and keyers, ClearKey chromakey, virtual sets, Fluent-View customizable multi-view, and camera and device controls.

Roadie's integrated 17.3-inch HD display, a resistive touchscreen with a scratch resistant top coat, is protected during transport by a removable cover. The system includes a keyboard and mouse, but can also be controlled through the built-in virtual panel, optional control panel, or an iPad using the iPixPanel app.

The new Show Transfer utility, included with Roadie and featured in Version 4.5 software for Granite and Mica as well as Version 3.5 software for Flint, allows organizations to back up and move all elements of a program including graphics, clips, and macros between Broadcast Pix systems. It also makes it easy to maintain redundancy between systems or upgrade to a new Broadcast Pix system.

Show Transfer simplifies the sharing of production elements between multiple systems, such as a main control room, a production truck, and a Roadie system, Ellis explained. Our customers who saw Show Transfer demonstrated at NAB in April loved it, but they were also excited about our support for embedded audio and the new integrated PixPlay slo-mo functionality.

Ideal for almost any sports application, PixPlay allows any Broadcast Pix integrated production switcher to provide slo-mo control to a Blackmagic HyperDeck or AJA Ki Pro disk recorder. An operator can replay footage manually using controls on the front panel of the HyperDeck Studio or Ki Pro but with PixPlay, VTR control is ported to the production switcher along with six preset replay speeds. Users can also scrub or single step through a scene for better control and functionality, as well as mark an unlimited number of in points as part of a playback EDL for preparing a highlight reel.

The V4.5 upgrade also adds embedded audio for Granite and Mica systems, which takes an analog line in and embeds it on the SDI outputs. (Flint already supports embedded audio.) For Granite X, Broadcast Pix's flagship integrated production switcher, the upgrade adds a second key/cut channel, which is ideal for providing a second external CG input. Plus, API integration allows Crestron or AMX to control virtually any portion of a Broadcast Pix system. Both new software versions also include bug fixes and other enhancements.

Roadie is available now and pricing starts at $12,495. Optional accessories include a soft carrying case with shoulder strap and custom hard rolling case. V4.5 software is free for Granite and Mica customers who have Version 4.0 or are under warranty. Flint V3.5 software is free for Flint customers under warranty or currently using V.3.0. PixPlay is also available separately for $495.
