Broadcast Pix is to introduce the Flint live video production system for streaming video from multiple sources. The system is built around the company's multi-format production switcher, and supports up to six HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, and analogue cameras, plus eight channels of clips and graphics. It allows operators to include cloud-based content, in addition to cameras and file-based graphics and video, during live productions, from sources as diverse as Skype, Twitter, RSS feeds, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft SkyDrive. Flint ingests and scales the sources while maintaining lip sync, and provides up to seven simultaneous outputs. This allows operators to deliver streaming with Adobe Flash in HD, plus video content for broadcast in various formats, as well as offering an internal record function. “Broadcast Pix Flint is the professional solution that streaming video producers have been waiting for,” said Steve Ellis, Broadcast Pix CEO. “Flint brings with it a complete set of professional production tools, now extended for cloud ingest so you have everything you need to create dynamic video, whether you are producing for webcast or broadcast.” It includes three keyers for layering, each with picture-in-picture and customisable DVE. A Harris Inscriber CG provides six graphics channels, while a built-in, two-channel clip server stores up to 30 hours of clips and animations in a variety of file formats, including ProRes, H.264, DNxHD and QuickTime animations. Flint includes the entire Broadcast Pix production control environment, with features including Fluent-View, a customisable multi-view; customisable virtual sets; and control of robotic cameras, video servers, audio mixers, recorders, and other external studio devices. It is Available in April priced from $8,995 (£6,000). Adrian Pennington www.broadcastpix.com
