New Broadcast Pix Version 3.5 Software Brings Cloud-Based Content to Live Productions

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced its new Version 3.5 software, which brings the cloud-based file and data access of its award-winning Flint™ integrated production system to its Mica™ and Granite™ systems. The software upgrade connects any system to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, or any cloud-based resource for access to graphics, animations, and clips during live productions. V3.5 also provides access to Twitter, RSS feeds, and cloud-based databases for live updates to on-air graphics. The new software will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 2528), which runs June 10-12 in Orlando, Fla.

Access to cloud-based content is becoming more important in today’s live video production environment. Using Fluent Watch-Folders, Broadcast Pix’s built-in ingest and content management system, V3.5 allows access to any file from a cloud-based resource, even during the middle of a live production. The system operator is alerted when a file arrives, the file’s thumbnail appears on the system monitor, and the file name appears on the control panel’s button. V3.5 includes enhanced PixMaster file management software to view and manage file metadata, such as setting files to auto-start when taken into the live show.

V3.5 also enables any Broadcast Pix system to run an enhanced family of optional Fluent Rapid CG software to connect cloud data directly to on-air graphics. New Fluent Rapid CG LT connects to Twitter and other cloud data sources, enabling the viewing audience to become part of the production. Tweets can flow directly to air or be pre-screened with a built-in management system for editing, reordering, or deleting Tweets. Specific words and users can also be automatically blocked. Fluent Rapid CG LT also enables RSS, clock, and weather feeds to flow into on-air graphics.

New Fluent Rapid CG V3 includes all the LT features plus dual-channel connectivity to local and cloud-based databases, news automation, and scoreboards. Cloud-based databases are becoming common for sports, elections, and other applications, for example, and Fluent Rapid CG V3 allows sports scores in league databases to automatically flow into on-air graphics.

Free upgrades for customers who are under service agreements, the new V3.5 software and optional Fluent Rapid CG products are now available for download in Beta versions, and are expected to be available in final versions later this month.
