Broadcast Pix Demonstrates Upgraded Flint, Granite X Integrated Production Systems at CCW

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ will demonstrate Version 2.0 of its new Flint™ integrated production system, as well as upgrades to its new Granite™ X large-scale live production system, at Content & Communications World (Booth 861), Nov. 13-14, 2013, at Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Recently unveiled at IBC 2013 in Amsterdam, Flint V2 adds an internal eight-channel audio mixer, as well as broadcast quality internal H.264 recording and.WMV Web streaming, while Granite X has improved its multi-view monitoring and added advanced DDR control. Both Granite X and Flint can add cloud-based content – from Skype, Twitter, RSS feeds, Dropbox, and a variety of other online sources – during a live production while maintaining lip sync.

Flint’s new audio mixer takes audio from any camera input or internal clip store, and is controlled through an intuitive audio interface with on-screen stereo faders and VU meters. Other features include peak hold capability, mute and solo functions, and built-in audio-follow-video. Two outputs allow separate mixes with independent control for master recording and Web presentations. The audio mixer can also be controlled through Fluent Macros, an advanced macro system that easily executes any combination of video, audio, files, and device moves for complex effects.

“Flint was designed specifically for operations with limited budgets and limited manpower,” explained Steve Ellis, Broadcast Pix CEO. “An integrated audio mixer means one less piece of hardware to purchase plus easier audio control. It’s an important addition for our commitment to end-to-end integration.”

Expanding on its included Adobe Flash streaming, Flint V2 adds the ability to steam to a Windows Media Server using Microsoft Expression Encoder in up to 720p resolution. Flint V2 also adds built-in recording of the program output to the internal hard drive. Broadcast quality 1080i H.264 .MOV clips can be added to a show automatically using Fluent™ Watch Folders, Flint’s built-in file management system, or exported to an NLE system for later use.

Another enhancement adds a network input so video and audio from a Windows-based PC can be accessed as a source in Flint’s built-in production switcher. This not only reduces the amount of physical inputs, but allows cloud-based content from Skype and other sources, as well as other remote applications, to be seamlessly integrated into a live production.

Flint’s multi-format 1 M/E production switcher supports up to six cameras and includes eight channels of clips and graphics, three keyers with PiP and customizable DVE, Inscriber CG with six graphic channels, and a built-in, two-channel clip server stores up to 30 hours of clips and animations in a variety of file formats. Other features include the customizable Fluent-View multi-view, customizable virtual sets, and control of robotic cameras and other external devices.

Granite X improvements include advanced Fluent-View customizable multi-view capabilities, with 16 full motion source windows. It also offers enhanced DDR control that allows for different clips in each of the four channels of Harris, Omneon, Grass Valley K2, and 360 Systems servers. Ideal for large-scale productions, the 2 M/E Granite X features a Granite Switcher with 22 HD/SD-SDI inputs and 12 outputs, seven channels of file-based inputs, and six key layers for compositing. The system also includes a Granite Server that holds up to 180 hours of clips and graphics, Fluent™ integrated workflow tools, and redundant power and switching.

Flint V2 will ship in November with all new Flint systems and will be a free upgrade for all Flint systems under warranty. Granite X is now shipping and the new upgrades are available for any current user.
