New Orleans 200-up for Broadcast Pix

2 October 2006

Following the IBC launch of WAPSTR (enabling easy and speedy ingest of stills and video footage from mobile phones into the TV newsroom workflow), Chyron has this week announced the second product in the Mobile Suite for CAMIO – MOS2WAP.

Broadcast Pix this week announced the delivery of its 200th system. The customer, PBS affiliate WLAE-TV in New Orleans, recently installed a Broadcast Pix 2000 switcher in a remote truck being used by the station’s production company, LAE Productions. LAE Productions won a contract to begin broadcasting area high school football games on the local cable system, Cox Cable of Baton Rouge. The first game was broadcast live on August 25th.

“Broadcast Pix was the only switcher that featured a built-in CG and clip store,” said Ron Yager, station manager, WLAE-TV and LAE Productions. “We can complete a production with our new switcher and never need to run anything through post. Plus, it’s really compact, so fits easily within our truck. Because of its high-quality graphics and integrated approach, we’re confident it will greatly improve the quality of our field productions as well increase our overall speed and efficiency.”

Broadcast Pix systems are used in the Americas, Europe and Asia for news, events, training, presentation, sports, and all live video production applications. Broadcast customers include affiliates of ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS and European broadcasters, as well as many independent and cable stations.
