Broadcast Pix Adds Fluent Clip Store to Granite Video Production Systems

New Version 1.3 Software Activates 120-Hour HD Clip Store with Stereo Audio

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ announced today the release of Granite™ Version 1.3, which adds Fluent™ Clip Store to the live video production system’s suite of built-in workflow tools. The new Fluent Clip Store holds up to 120 hours of HD clips and supports 1920×1080 .MOV and .MP4 files. The upgrade also provides stereo audio output for both Fluent Clip Store and Animation Store.

“The new Fluent Clip Store is an important milestone for Broadcast Pix,? explained Ken Swanton, president of Broadcast Pix. “Some switchers in the industry feature limited storage for basic animations, but no other company offers a production switcher with a true clip store. With Granite Version 1.3, we are delivering HD clip and animation playback with stereo audio through our unique integrated content server.?

Fluent Clip Store is so well integrated into the Granite workflow that clips can be instantly accessed from the control panel with file names displayed on the PixButtons. In Fluent Multi-View, clip thumbnails appear along with file names and metadata, while active clips play in real time and display a clip counter. Clips are easily imported to Granite using Fluent Watch-Folders and begin playing automatically on the transition to air.

“Having a feature like the HD clip player is what makes the Broadcast Pix Granite system the obvious choice for the live events industry,? said concert producer Simon Graves, who used a Granite 5000 system last month for the production of Donny & Marie: A Broadway Christmas in New York City.

Through Fluent Macros, the industry’s first file-based switcher macro memory system, clips can be combined easily with switcher moves and graphics file recalls, as well as control of robotic cameras and audio mixers. The only switcher with a built-in content server, Granite can store up to 2 TB of clips, animations, and graphics, and can be ordered in a RAID array for redundancy and additional reliability.

Version 1.3 also provides stereo audio output for the new Fluent Clip Store and Granite’s existing Fluent Animation Store through XLR connectors in the rear of the Granite system. Granite’s dedicated Fluent Animation Store is ideal for animated backgrounds, logos, or transitions. Animations can be created on the built-in Inscriber CG or uploaded from external programs such as Adobe After Effects.

Granite Version 1.3 is available now for 50 and 60Hz Granite installations worldwide as a free download at www.broadcastpix.com. To see a short video demonstration of Granite, please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxd4mBIz5d
