Next-gen graphics workflows from Pixel Power5 March 2014
At its 26th consecutive NAB, Pixel Power will demonstrate how its solutions enable broadcasters to reduce their CAPEX, collapse their production and delivery chains to fewer systems and use less equipment to make the most of digital channels and second screen opportunities. Highlights will include Pixel Factory, Pixel OnDemand, Gallium, ChannelMaster, Newsroom and Pixel Promo.
Pixel Factory, the company’s new server-based implementation of its graphics engine, is intended to support file-based operations. It can be used as a solution for adding extra graphics capability to support quality control, web delivery and post production, or to enhance programme material and add graphics overlays for playout and streaming applications.
Pixel OnDemand aims to give companies the flexibility to pay for the rendering time they actually need rather than spend on unused capacity, and runs on standard IT servers.
Gallium, an integrated and scalable scheduling, asset management and automation system provides the intelligence to build a variety of playout solutions using Pixel Power output devices for file, IP or SDI domains.
The ChannelMaster integrated playout system reduces the traditional playout signal path to a single system and is suitable for facilities that need to implement automated control of transmission devices for graphics or a complete channel playout.
Newsroom allows users to insert graphics throughout the entire workflow, from production through distribution and, finally, Pixel Promo is a fully automated branding and promotion software which aims to eliminate the lower the cost of delivering branding and dynamic, accurate promos to air.
