Broadcast Pix updates control centre software

by Chris Newbould on Jan 27, 2013

Broadcast Pix is shipping its Video Control Center 3.2 software, a free upgrade that improves its Granite and Mica integrated live video production systems. Camera control enhancements include thumbnail displays of each preset position, as well as auto-follow of camera switching and enhanced macro integration. The built-in clip server now supports native Avid DNxHD clips and multi-definition ProRes and H.264 clips, while the six-channel graphic store adds frame capture. Plus, custom monitor layouts and macros can now be tied to each show, and a new option turns any Granite 2000 system into a 2 M/E switcher.

“Today’s announcement enhances our leading end-to-end integration,” said Ken Swanton, Broadcast Pix CEO. “Reaching out and controlling cameras with the kind of integration in Version 3.2 really sets Broadcast Pix apart. Plus our enhanced clip, graphic, and switching systems provides a level of integration that enables a small crew to create amazing video.”

The new camera control software displays a thumbnail of each camera preset position, rather than just the number of each preset, on the system’s Fluent-View enhanced multi-view display. The visual reference helps an operator quickly select the desired camera position. Plus, with new camera follow, each camera’s preset choices appear automatically when that camera is previewed on the switcher. Thumbnails can be created for 100 preset positions on each of up to 12 Panasonic robotic cameras, as well as 16 preset positions on each of up to 12 Sony robotic cameras.
