​Broadcast Pix Deploys BPCommand Switcher Control

The new BPCommand series of streamlined interfaces for Broadcast Pix’ integrated production switchers are said to be so intuitive that no technical skill is required to produce high-quality live productions.

“BPCommand presents the operator with a streamlined interface consisting of intelligent, highly automated controls that have been carefully configured to suit the environment,” says Kevin Prince, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “As a result, non-technical personnel can execute sophisticated production sequences that blend source switching, robotic camera control, and graphics simply at the press of a button.

Running on standard web browsers, including those on Android and iOS devices, and automatically adjusting to any screen size, BPCommand is usable on any familiar device including touch-screen monitors, tablets, and smartphones. BPCommand can be used as a standalone control system, for a Broadcast Pix integrated production switcher or in conjunction with any other Broadcast Pix control surface. BPCommand is fully integrated with BPNet forming part of the new Broadcast Pix eco-system.

“For coverage of government meetings, worship services, and other programs, many productions rely on volunteer crews who have little or no formal live video production training,” explained Prince. “With BPCommand, the automated controls allow the operator be creative without getting overwhelmed by technology. BPCommand bridges the skill gap with comfortable control interfaces that de-clutter the production process while delivering professional results.”
