Realtime graphics and slow motion replays to the fore at Broadcast Pix
New standalone fX3D realtime 3D graphics and ReVue HD slow motion replay systems will be on display at Broadcast Pix. The company will also demonstrate its ClearKey next generation chromakey, which is part of new version 3.0 software for Flint and version 4.0 software for Granite and Mica integrated production switchers, as well as spotlight its expanded family of Flint and VOX visual radio systems.
Developed in collaboration with strategic partner EditShare, ReVue plays back two or four channels of video in sync, allowing users to cut between cameras and find the best replay angle. Its compact controller includes a jog/shuttle wheel for reviewing footage, controls for manual and preset playback speeds, and buttons for marking in and out points for playback. ReVue is paired with Granite X in the IBC demo.
Both ReVue and fX3D can be integrated with Broadcast Pix systems or work independently in existing production environments. fX3D has three software modules, including a built-in 3D modeller and template-based rundown controller.
The new ClearKey chromakey is part of Broadcast Pix’s Fluent workflow software, which also provides tools including a built-in robotic camera control with preset or manual control and file-based macros.
All three Flint models – the entry-level LE, four-input LX and six-input LS — handle the production workflow from ingest to distribution, with a multiformat production switcher that allows operators to include cloud-based content from Skype, Twitter and other resources during live productions. Broadcast Pix is also showing VOX Lite, a small-scale version of its VOX voice-automated visual radio system, which works with any Flint, Granite or Mica technology.
