New Broadcast Pix Version 3.5 Software Connects with Cloud-Based Content for Live Productions

Fluent Rapid CG 3 Adds Support for Twitter, OES Scoreboard Data

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced the availability of its new Version 3.5 software, which adds a number of enhancements, including the cloud-based content access of its award-winning Flint™integrated production system, to its Mica™ and Granite™ systems. The company also announced the availability of Fluent Rapid CG™ 3, its most advanced tool for creating data-intensive CG graphics with automated database integration, and Fluent Rapid CG LT, a light version that can access RSS and Twitter feeds.

Demonstrated at InfoComm 2013 in June, V3.5 enables any Broadcast Pix system to run the optional new Fluent Rapid CG software and connect cloud-based content and data directly to on-air graphics. Fluent Rapid CG LT lets the audience become part of the production by connecting to Twitter and other cloud-based data sources. RSS, clock, and weather feeds can flow directly into on-air graphics, and Tweets can flow directly to air or be pre-screened with a built-in management system. Plus, action buttons can now trigger multiple tags.

Fluent Rapid CG 3 includes all the LT features plus dual-channel connectivity to local and cloud-based content databases, news automation, and scoreboards. With cloud-based databases becoming common for sports, elections, and other applications, Rapid CG 3 allows sports scores in league databases to automatically flow into on-air graphics. It also adds support for OES Scoreboard data and Web-based XML databases.

Beyond automated graphics, V3.5 connects any system to any cloud-based resource for access to animations, clips, and databases during live productions. Using Fluent Watch-Folders, Broadcast Pix’s built-in ingest and content management system, V3.5 allows access to files from Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive Drive, or any cloud-based content 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.

Other V3.5 features include enhanced PixMaster file management software to view and manage file metadata, such as setting files to auto-start when taken into the live show. Plus, all 1 M/E control panels can now provide control for 2 M/E systems. The new software also delivers enhanced Sony camera control and advanced audio-follow-video functionality.

“Our version 3.5 software fulfills our promise to deliver integrated production systems that embrace the cloud,” said Steve Ellis, Broadcast Pix CEO. “Cloud-based content continues to become more important in the live production environment. Whether it’s a Skype video interview, a last-minute graphic from a designer across the country, or even Tweets, Broadcast Pix makes it easy to ingest and manage content – and then include that content on the air without lip sync or formatting issues.”

V3.5 is a free upgrade for all Granite and Mica systems under warranty, and is available as a paid upgrade or with a warranty extension for systems that are out of warranty. Customers should contact the Broadcast Pix sales team for more information.
