Pixel Power’s ChannelMaster making UK exhibition debut13 February 2012
The fully integrated playout solution incorporates all the functionality to deliver a channel to air but with playout capabilities that make ‘channel-in-a-box’ an exciting choice for broadcasters across the region.
The need for sophisticated integrated playout systems continues to grow as the number of channels being launched requires a new level of playout efficiency. Pixel Power says that this technology meets that need, integrating storage, graphics, DVE, audio, subtitling, master control, live feed and long-form video playout within a single dedicated hardware platform.
By placing Pixel Power’s graphics engine at its core, ChannelMaster includes dedicated processing for the full range of sophisticated graphics, including realtime 3D, multichannel clips with alpha and unlimited layers. A single ChannelMaster unit can be configured as one complex channel with preview or two simpler channels.
One of the key benefits of this technology is no automation lock-in: ChannelMaster can integrate with many automation and MAM systems by way of an open XML protocol or legacy industry standard protocols. Alternatively, it can be controlled by Pixel Power’s new Gallium scheduling, asset management and automation solution.
