Complete Studio
Complete System: Switcher, Clip Store, CG Graphics, Animations,...
Inside every Integrated Production System is a powerful switcher, with an integrated clip store, graphics system and animations. End-to-end integration
includes ingesting files from the studio and the cloud. Fluent Watch-Folders enables clips and graphics to easily flow into the system from your favorite editing and graphics systems, even during a live production. And, Fluent Rapid CG connects data directly to the graphic system. A Flint system is shown below,
it also includes an 8-channel audio mixer, internal recording and streaming.
Cloud-based Content
Bring Cloud-Based Content to Live Productions
Access to cloud-based content is becoming more important in today’s live video production environment. Using Fluent
Watch-Folders, Broadcast Pix’s built-in ingest and content management system, access to any file from a cloud-based
resource is easy, even during the middle of a live production. Cloud data storage services includes Dropbox, Google Drive
and Microsoft SkyDrive. Now when you are home and remember you forgot to add a critical graphic to your show, you
can do it from your smartphone. And your colleagues can add files to
your production from across town or across the globe. 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. Broadcast Pix’s 3 models have enhanced PixMaster file management software to view and manage file metadata, such as setting files to auto-start when taken into the live show.
Optional Fluent Rapid CG software connects cloud data directly to on-air graphics. New Fluent Rapid CG
LT connects to Twitter and other cloud data sources, enabling the viewing audience to become part of
the production. Tweets can flow directly to air or be pre-screened with a built-in management system
for editing, reordering, or deleting Tweets. Specific words and users can also be automatically blocked.
Fluent Rapid CG LT also enables RSS, clock, and weather feeds to flow into on-air graphics.
New Fluent Rapid CG V3 includes all the LT features plus dual-channel connectivity to local and cloudbased databases, news automation, and scoreboards. Cloud-based databases are becoming common
for sports, elections, and other applications, for example, and Fluent Rapid CG V3 allows sports scores
in league databases to automatically flow into on-air graphics. Graphics can also be updated from local
and cloud-based databases to automate multiple graphics simultaneously. And graphics can be automatically updated from Daktronics and now OES scoreboards.

Touch-screen Control
Intuitive
Touch-screens are an easy and fun way to create dynamic live video.
Add one to a Broadcast Pix Desktop system and create with touch, not
just a mouse. Or use a touch-screen to complement any one of our
panel systems, such as to select clips or fire macros. Touch-screen
brings a whole new dimension to live video production, another
control innovation from Broadcast Pix.
Spread your control surface across two screens, up to four on Granite.
Fully customize as each window can be independently sized. And, if
you ever want to add a panel someday, just plug one in.
Each Desktop Integrated Production System has a powerful video
switcher (page 17, 18 and 19), an integrated Fluent-View monitor
(page 7), clip store holding hours of clips (page 8), and a graphics
system that includes a Harris or Chyron character generator (page 9).
Create Virtual Sets (page 10). Extend control to external devices,
nd distribute control to additional operators when needed (page 11).

Voice-Automated Control
Operator Optional Live Production
Host
Override
Panel
Broadcast Pix VOX™ enables any Flint, Mica or Granite systems to create great
live video without an operator. Use VOX as the primary control device, or
you can add a panel and manually control some shows and let VOX automate
others.
The 1RU VOX box detects which microphone is active, and then sophisticated
VOX software creates a video production that looks so good that the audience
assumes an operator is running it. One VOX box can support up to 8 microphones, and more can cascade for over 100 microphones.
For example, when the host talks into microphone 1, VOX can automatically
choose a camera preset, take the camera to air, fade on the graphic title, hold,
and then fade off the title.
VOX works by triggering powerful Fluent Macros on the Broadcast Pix system.
While VOX can execute simple shots for each microphone, the VOX software
has the intelligence to do a LOT more. It can have multiple macros for each
microphone, like a wide shot and close-up. It can mix in a collection of group
shots, like a wide shot or a shot with 3 PiP boxes. VOX can set how often titles
are shown. Inputs can be prioritized to rank the importance from the host to
the least important guest. To prevent every sound from activating a macro,
a cough or a simple “yes” or “no” can be filtered out. Timing can be set for a
fast-paced production, like radio, or for a slower one, like some meetings.
Mixer
VOX
Broadcast
Pix System
The host can take control of VOX, with the included 4‐button override panel.
For example, the host can roll an introductory clip, or select the wide shot, or
return the system to automated VOX control. For more extensive host control,
an optional Remote Panel can be added.
Just Two of the Many Uses of VOX
Add Video to Radio
Many radio stations are broadcasting on the internet or television, and VOX is a great way to add
video to it, without adding an operator. Shown
above is Qmusic, a radio network that broadcasts
video with VOX. According to Qmusic engineer
Rudi Wynants, “VOX makes it dynamic, so the
‘listener’ does not get the idea that everything is
automated by a computer.”
Integrated Production Systems
Meetings on the internet, television, or auditoriums
VOX is ideal for producing many meetings on television or the internet, including meetings
for government, corporate, and education. And thanks to the minimal constant delay of
the Broadcast Pix system, VOX is even great for auditorium productions.
VOX never gets tired, Never gets bored.
VOX pays for itself quickly, and solves the meeting operator turnover problem. Often producers
of meetings say: “My biggest headache is hiring and training operators. Operator turnover is
high, as the productions are often not that much fun. My operators get bored and miss switches.
For some programs, we’ve given up on operators and just use a wide shot”.

Customizable Fluent-View
Exceptional Feedback
Fluent-View is the most comprehensive heads-up display to compliment any switcher or video production system. It provides great feedback if you are
on a panel, or use a touch-screen or a mouse and create on the Fluent-View. Set-up the perfect layout for each show, as every window can be opened,
closed, resized, re-colored, and re-aligned. Layouts can be saved and recalled.

Dazzle with Animations
Spice up your production with animations.
Great for moving backgrounds, behind PiP
boxes, or for moving titles or powerful
transitions. Create animations on the built-in
CG, or on your favorite animation system,
including Apple Motion, Adobe After Effects,
and Digital Juice. Easily create animated
transitions by setting a cut point on the
animation.
Popular Formats
Use Fluent Watch-Folders to rapidly add clips and
animations to your system from popular editing
systems. The Granite and Mica play HD .mov or
.mp4 clips in H.264 or ProRes in their clip store,
and as well as short QuickTime Animations and
Targa sequences in their animation stores. With
optional premium storage, Granite can also
play long animations in its clip store. The Flint
clip stores play 1920x1080i ProRes PX/LT/422/
HQ/4444, H.264 .mov/.mp4, DNxHD .mov, QT

Virtual Sets
Create Your Own Great Sets in Minutes
Broadcast Pix virtual sets create a professional look,
and are so easy to use and customize. Virtual Sets are
included on all Flint, Mica and Granite models except
the 5000 and 6000.
Professional Look
Virtual sets work with cameras shooting in front of a
green (or blue) screen. You can have up to 8 camera
angles, and you still have three keys to position graphics
and PiP boxes on top.
Place a virtual set inside a PiP Box. Create sophisticated
looks with 2 or even 3 PiP boxes, position them anywhere you want, even on top of animated backgrounds.
You can even zoom any PiP shot out to full screen, or
pull it back into the box.
So Easy to Use, and Customize
Some virtual sets look great in demos, but are very
difficult to customize when you get home, Broadcast
Pix makes it so easy to create your own look. Use any
of the five included sets, each with many angles, by
just attaching an angle to each green screen camera.
You can also buy more sets from any supplier.
Use two virtual sets, one for a “studio” and one for “on location”
Best of all, create your own set in minutes out of any
picture. Use a stock image or take one with your
camera. Use a picture to transport your set anywhere,
in minutes!
Zoom either out to full screen, or pull back into the virtual set
Use Any Picture to Transport You Anywhere
1. Get a picture from a camera or
stock library, and drop it into the
included Image Editor.
2. The image editor sizes
it. Then select the area
you want with the yellow
box, and apply some blur
to simulate depth of field
for a close up.
3. Set up the green
screen, by just clicking on the green
with the eyedropper.
Fine tune with the
controls.
4. Combine the
treated image and
the camera.
5. Add up to 3 key layers on top,
such as this PiP box and title.

Integrated Control of External Devices
Every Broadcast Pix system can control other devices in your studio, with device control
software.
Robotic Cameras
from Panasonic, Sony, Hitachi and Telemetrics
Be your own camera operator. Select preset positions on your PixPad. Use your joystick
and knobs to manually control position, zoom, focus, iris, even white balance. Supercharge your Fluent Macro effects by adding camera moves. Control robotic cameras
from Sony, Panasonic or Hitachi, or choose our Telemetrics control for just about any
camera brand. Control 12 Sony cameras with 16 presets each, and 12 Panasonic cameras
with 100 presets each. Optional.
Streaming Appliances from Matrox
The best way to stream. Start and stop streams from your panel. The Matrox Monarch
HD gives streaming and broadcast quality recording capabilities to any Mica or Granite
system through a Matrox Monarch HD. Optional
Recorders from AJA Ki Pro
The best way to record your program output. Control the AJA recorder from the panel or
from a macro. You can also use the Ki Pro as another channel of clip player and control it
right from the PixPad. Standard.
Servers from 360, Harris, Omneon
Control external video servers from Omneon, Harris and 360 Systems. See and select
clips on the PixPad. Play them with motion controls or auto-start them. Optional.
Audio Mixers from Yamaha and others
Have your audio mixer automatically follow your video creation. Set microphones and
other audio gear to fade up or down depending on which camera you select. Control
MIDI mixers, including Yamaha and Roland. Optional.
Distribute Control to More Operators
Add Team Members
The control surface is so powerful that a single operator can create great video that used
to require a team. But when you still want a team, it’s easy to add help. Add a second
screen for a graphics operator, especially if you have a lot of graphics changing during the
show. Add more team members on SoftPanels, iPads, mobile phones or remote panels,
plus add team members contributing content across the network to Fluent-WatchFolders.
SoftPanels
Add another operator on our included soft panels on a laptop or Droid. Its network
connectivity means you can control your system from anywhere in the world. Control
clips and devices with our free iPhone app. It puts a PixPad in your hand – great for extra
helpers on any system. Or, drive your show with our iPad panel app. How cool is that?
Remote Panels
The Broadcast Pix Remote panel is a valuable option for Granite, as it offers the flexibility
of an Aux panel, sending any one of your external sources, as well as Program, Preview,
Power Aux, or Clean Feed to any of your Granite outputs. Plus up to 22 of your mostused Fluent Macros can be right in front of you at all times. Install your Remote Panel via
network anywhere in your facility. On Mica, the remote panel is great for controlling the
Power Aux output or for running macros.

PixButton Power
The Broadcast Pix 1000 Integrated Production Systems
include a spacious control panel that features our patented PixButtons – for switching video and file-based
sources with maximum confidence.
Each PixButton has a built-in display
which shows the device icon and the
file name of a clip or graphic. They
dynamically change during production, so you always know what is on
every source and key layer. A bank of
PixButtons on the panel’s versatile
PixPad makes it easier to select content libraries, camera presets, and more.
The video inputs range from 11 or 22 on the Granite
1000, to 8 on the Mica 1000, up to 6 on the Flint 1000.
Plus each model adds 7 channels, 8 on Flint, of filebased inputs.
Each 1000 system has a powerful video switcher (see page 17, 18 and 19), an
integrated Fluent-View monitor (page 7), clip store holding hours of clips (page 8),
and a graphics system that includes a Harris or Chyron character generator (page
9). Create Virtual Sets (page 10). Extend control to external devices, and distribute
control to additional operators when needed (page 11).
