Broadcast Pix Introduces VOX Lite Voice-Automated Control for Smaller Productions

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced VOX™ Lite, a small-scale version of its popular VOX voice-automated production option that works with any Flint™, Granite™ or Mica™ integrated production switcher. It will be demonstrated at InfoComm 2014 (C5737), which runs June 18-20 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Since it was introduced in 2011, VOX has become a popular automated solution for visual radio, as well as government and corporate meetings for television,Internet, and in-house projection. VOX and VOX Lite eliminate the need for an operator for live productions, as sophisticated software detects which microphone is in use and switches cameras for automatic video-follow-audio productions.

Using the power of Broadcast Pix’s built-in Fluent™ Macros, VOX Lite can also add or remove graphics, roll clips and animations, execute complex PiP compositions, and incorporate information from external data sources like Twitter to create an appealing visual experience. Multiple macros can be assigned to each microphone – and selection criteria can be established – to create varied shot selection and graphics. Conditions can be set to prevent coughs or one-word comments from triggering camera changes. Other features include manual override and the ability to prioritize microphones.

Both VOX models feature a 1RU breakout box hardware interface. VOX features eight microphone inputs, and multiple VOX boxes can be cascaded to support up to 104 microphones. VOX Lite supports four microphones. Both versions include camera control software for Panasonic and Sony robotic cameras.

“For productions with limited resources, VOX Lite offers automated audio-follow-video functionality at an incredible price point,” said Steve Ellis, general manager, Broadcast Pix. “It’s a great way for local radio stations to stream video to the Web or small towns that want to improve meeting coverage without increasing staff requirements.”

VOX Lite has an MSRP of $3,500, which includes the breakout box and software. For a limited time, VOX Lite is available as part of a bundled package with the entry-level Flint LE, which supports three HDMI or analog inputs, for $9,995. VOX Lite can also be bundled with Flint LX (four SDI or HDMI inputs) for $12,495 or Flint LS (six inputs in multiple configurations) for $15,495 through June 30. All three Flint models include two additional network inputs, which are ideal for presentations and Web-based content from remote computers, as well as an internal audio mixer.
