Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS) is the first customer to install a Broadcast Pix Slate 2 M/E live integrated production system. Broadcast Pix launched the Slate 5000 switcher series at the NAB convention in April 2008 of this year. The new switcher was delivered and installed on ABS’ multiformat HD mobile production unit in June 2008, as the first of six Slate 5000 switchers that Broadcast Pix delivered in June.
The ABS truck, which is a 24ft mobile unit, was designed specifically to support the needs of broadcasters in the Pacific Northwest; however, the truck’s market also extends to production companies, houses of worship, and theatrical and musical events. With the ability to take in and output virtually any video signal, the truck is outfitted with the latest gear including: three Thomson LDK-4000 triax HD cameras with 14-bit A/D conversion and 22-bit processing; a Roland RSS M-400 48-channel 18-bit digital audio mixing console; and a fully configurable multiviewer LCD monitor system.For more information, visit www.broadcastpix.com.
