Broadcast Pix Shows BPswitch Switchers

Broadcast Pix will demonstrate BPswitch, a solution for remote unmanned studios including graphics capability.

Unlike other switchers that require leasing expensive network lines for each remote camera, BPswitch enables the switcher to be located on site and controlled remotely – along with IP-based PTZ cameras – using a typical internet connection.

Broadcast Pix' BPNet IP ecosystem, powered through the ioGates cloud-based media management platform, delivers BPswitch’s control-over-IP capabilities with low latency, as well as extended encryption and two-factor authentication for secure performance. The Broadcast Pix Commander user interface provides a simplified and customizable interface, which helps non-technical personnel easily switch live productions, add titles, insert clips, and control robotic cameras.

Included with every BPswitch is the NewBlueNTX high-end CG, which produces multi-layer 3D motion graphics. It includes hundreds of title styles and templates, so it is easy to create and update lower-thirds, bugs, animations, looping effects like a glint or shine, and more. It works with the firm's optional Rapid CG 4 software, which is for sports and election coverage because it automatically updates on-screen graphics from databases, scoreboards, social media, and RSS feeds. New features exclusively for BPswitch and NewBlueNTX include multi-layered playback for each channel, triggering multi-layered playback with Action Buttons, Adobe After Effects project import, multi-lingual support, and a second license for the software.

“We are excited to bring BPswitch to IBC, because it truly lets you take control anywhere, whether you’re across town or across the country. You get complete access to your switcher and all your cameras, clips, graphics, and workflow tools right from your tablet,” said Steve Ellis, COO. “We’ve already received a lot of positive feedback about the NewBlueNTX 3D CG, and a lot of interest from broadcasters who want an affordable way to operate remote unmanned studios.”

BPswitch models start at $10,995, with FX models shipping later this month.
