Broadcast Pix Software Update Available

V9.0 software is now available on all new Broadcast Pix systems and includes GuestPix Remote Guest Integration, Intercom and Enhanced Automation.

“We are consistently working to improve and simplify the live production experience of our users,” said Graham Sharp, CEO, Broadcast Pix. “We are very excited that this major software release will enable our users to do more - include remote guests, improved team collaboration, and enhanced automation within their live productions – at no additional cost. These rich new features build upon our tradition of offering the most powerful yet easiest-to-use live production solutions available today.”

GuestPix integrates remote guests connected via their browser with any other video elements in the switcher, including full automation and timing by including them in Macros.

Remote crew members such as camera or graphic operator can now talk to the switcher operator like a traditional intercom system through their browser, using their local mic, speakers or headset.

Additionally, they can open a chat window and message the switcher operator or control room using IM, with the ability to leave, but still pick up conversations when they re-enter. The chat session can also be saved to a text file for later use.

For enhanced automation a Macro Timer can be used to schedule a Macro to trigger at a set time or on a recurring basis. Plus a show-based camera control setting is included to work with all IP cameras using the Sony camera control protocol. This is said to simplify operation for multiple setups of different room configurations.

Version 9.0 software is now available on all new BPswitch, ChurchPix, RadioPix and StreamingPix systems, and is also available as a free update for existing Broadcast Pix users under warranty or a support contract.
