Broadcast Pix Cloud-Based Production Switcher Shipping

BPswitch integrated production switchers, the FX4 and FX6 models, from Broadcast Pix are now shipping. This series allows live production via cloud-based control from a traditional control room or anywhere a browser-based interface can be accessed via a tablet, smart phone or laptop.

Using the company’s BPNet IP ecosystem, powered through the ioGates cloud-based media management platform, BPswitch offers full-motion video and complete access to all sources and workflow tools. The Broadcast Pix Commander user interface provides a simplified and customizable interface, which helps non-technical personnel easily switch live productions, add titles, insert clips, and control robotic cameras.

BPswitch is also a cost-effective solution for remote unmanned studios, which are becoming more popular for broadcasters because of staffing and location flexibility. Unlike other switchers that require leasing expensive network lines for each remote camera, BPswitch uses a typical internet connection to control the on-site switcher and IP-based PTZ cameras.
