Broadcast Pix introduces integrated production switcher

Broadcast Pix will introduce BPswitch RX, a portable integrated production switcher, at IBC 2018 (Hall 7, Stand C06). A self-contained unit complete with touchscreen display and integrated streaming to Facebook Live and other CDNs, BPswitch RX provides multi-camera production and high-end motion graphics for live production on location.

Ideal for sports, concerts, and event coverage, BPswitch RX features four multi-definition video inputs, plus two IP inputs that support RTSP and NDI protocol. It also includes eight channels of clips and graphics, built-in audio mixer, three keyers with DVEs, and seven outputs. The integrated New BlueNTX multi-layer 3D motion graphics CG includes hundreds of title styles and templates, so it is easy to create and update lower-thirds, bugs, animations, rolls, crawls, and looping effects like a glint or shine.

BPswitch RX offers the full complement of Broadcast Pix workflow tools, including built-in program recording, clip and graphic stores, file-based macros, ClearKey chromakey and Virtual Studios virtual sets, and customizable multi-view. The system is housed in a durable aluminum alloy chassis with built-in handle for easy transport. BPswitch RX provides an all-in-one video production solution in a rugged, compact package designed for mobile productions.

Although BPswitch RX can be operated with the included keyboard and mouse, users can connect a traditional Broadcast Pix control panel or use the optional Broadcast Pix Commander customizable touchscreen interface. With its simplified controls, Commander helps non-technical personnel switch live productions, add titles, insert clips, and control robotic cameras. The recently updated iPixPanel and iPixPad provide other control options, allowing a second operator to complete specific production tasks through an iPad or iPhone.

Like other models, BPswitch RX provides full-motion video and complete access to all sources and workflow tools through a browser-based interface that can be accessed by tablet, phones, and laptops. The company’s BPNet IP ecosystem, powered through the ioGates cloud-based media management platform, delivers BPswitch’s control-over-IP capabilities with low latency, as well as extended encryption and two-factor authentication for secure performance.

BPswitch RX supports optional robotic camera control as well as BPfusion, Broadcast Pix’s optional software for streamlined data-intensive CG graphics for sports, election, and news coverage. Broadcast Pix also offers soft and hard carrying cases for additional protection for air travel or other transport. (8/18)
