Chelmsford, Massachusetts – 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.

Every BPswitch model also features the NewBlueNTX high-end CG, which produces multi-layer 3D motion graphics. It includes hundreds of title styles and templates, so it is easy to create and update lower-thirds, bugs, animations, looping effects like a glint or shine, and more. It works seamlessly with Broadcast Pix’s optional Rapid CG 4 software, which is ideal for sports and election coverage because it automatically updates on-screen graphics from databases, scoreboards, social media, and RSS feeds.

Pricing on the BPswitch FX models starts at $10,995. Current Broadcast Pix customers can also upgrade to BPswitch.
