At NAB Pixel Power Inc. introduced the new Pixel Power ChannelMaster integrated playout system, which provides an out-of-the-box solution to bring new channels to air quickly and cost-effectively. ChannelMaster integrates storage, graphics, DVE, audio, subtitling, master control, live feed and long-form video playout within a single dedicated hardware platform.
The system integrates with third party automation and MAM systems and can replace many devices in the traditional playout chain, with no compromise in quality. ChannelMaster may also be controlled by Pixel Power’s own graphics and media management architecture software.
The system fully supports the emerging need for 3D stereoscopic graphics while maintaining a familiar workflow, and allows the re-use of pre-existing graphics templates, reducing the time and cost of launching a 3D channel.
Also at NAB was Pixel Power’s new Gallium integrated, sophisticated and scalable scheduling, asset management and automation system for playout facilities that need automated control of Pixel Power transmission devices, including ChannelMaster.
Pixel Power is represented in South Africa by Zimele Broadcasting Services.
