The STAR Award (short for Superior Technology Award Recipient) is designed to celebrate and showcase technological innovations for the broadcast industry. “STAR Awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,? said Mark Hallinger, editor of TV Technology Europe. “The products selected help advance the industry – some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.?

“We want to thank TV Technology Europe for recognizing Mica with a STAR Award during IBC,? said Ken Swanton, president, Broadcast Pix. “It’s always gratifying when other industry professionals appreciate your new products. We think our Mica family of products will be a big asset for video professionals, because it provides all the tools you need to create compelling live HD video at the price of a switcher.?

The new Mica system provides pristine HD and leadership integration in a compact, cost effective package. It harnesses the native HD technology from the award-winning Broadcast Pix Granite™ systems, and includes Broadcast Pix Fluent™ software, which tightly integrates video and file-based content, so even a single operator can create compelling live productions. Housed in a single 4 RU case, Mica includes a multi-definition switcher that can mix eight HD/SD-SDI inputs with seven channels of internal clips, animations, and graphics. There is support for up to six keyers and DVEs, six HD/SD-SDI outputs, and two DVI outputs. It also includes a 30-hour clip store and a Harris or optional Chyron character generator.
