Broadcast Pix has introduced Granite 2.0 and Slate 8.5 software, as well as two new live video production systems, Granite 500 and Slate 500, which feature a new, compact control panel.
Granite 2.0 adds playlists, ProRes clips and QuickTime animation playback; offers an enhanced Harris CG and an optional Chyron CG; improves chroma key and key priority controls; and provides remote control of streaming appliances. Slate 8.5 also provides many of these same improvements.
The Granite and Slate 500 control panels provide a tactile control surface with comprehensive monitoring of video and files, as well as complete control of the system's clip store, CG, cameras and other devices. The new one-M/E control panel supports up to 18 sources and six keyers for overlays of picture-in-picture boxes and graphics.
The Granite 500 HD system offers 11 HD/SD-SDI inputs (expandable to 22) and six HD/SD-SDI outputs (expandable to 12). The Slate 500 hybrid system offers four or eight analog, HD/SD-SDI or DVI inputs and four (expandable to five) outputs.
