Pixel Power is using BVE 2015 as an opportunity to discuss the future of graphics across the whole of the broadcast world. Alongside demonstrations of a range of the creative solutions based on its Clarity platform, Pixel Power staff will be on hand to talk about how automated content packaging is transforming channel branding and collapsing the cost of playout.
Pixel Factory incorporates the best of breed graphics from the Clarity Graphics engine with the Pixel Power Gallium workflow management system, which provides work order processing and asset management. As well as allowing broadcasters to create many more trailers and promos with a lower budget while retaining a consistent and distinctive on-air identity, it also offers a radical new approach to channel playout.
For thematic channels, Pixel Factory can package every part of the output – programmes, commercial breaks, promos, and audience retention tricks like squeezebacks and voiceovers. That means the entire channel can be played or distributed from simple video servers, channel in a box systems or IP streaming solutions without the need for a dedicated graphics device. Pixel Factory also provides a packaging solution for VoD and OTT services where its output can be sent directly to the CDN portal in the required formats.
“We have some pretty bold ideas on how we can transform the broadcast landscape through automated content packaging coupled to our graphics excellence. BVE is a great opportunity to talk through these ideas with broadcasters and media companies, as well as showing what the systems can do,” reported CEO, James Gilbert.
