Broadcast Pix Slate Portable Production System
Broadcast Pix Slate Portable
For productions on the go, Slate Portable is the ideal solution. Just put it on a table top, open the front to see the monitor, keyboard and touchpad. Then plug in cameras and starts creating compelling video.
The Slate portable control surface uses a keyboard, mouse, or optional touch-screen or 500 panel, to put everything at your fingertips, and provides the most powerful heads-up display in the industry.
The customized displays are more than just a multi-view - it is a Fluent-View™, since it is fluent in cameras, clips and graphics, as well as key layers to give you exceptional feedback.
The tactile control is also fluent in video and files. Get instant access to video and files. Device controls let you command clips, animations, CG pages, stills, key layers, cameras and streamers. You can even drive the system from your laptop, iPad or Android.
The hybrid switcher has 8 SD SDI or analog inputs, and 5 outputs, and frame synchronizers are built-in. Optional I/O can be HD SDI and DVI. With 3 or 6 keys and DVEs, go ahead and pile on layers of Picture-in-Picture boxes, graphics, and animations. Recalls of CG pages, clips, files, keys and even camera moves can be set in a Fluent Macro, to add one-button magic to your production. And very low delay means great live events.
The integrated dual channel Clip Store offers up to 120 hours of clips and animations with audio, key, in H.264, ProRes, DV and DVCPRO formats. Clips auto-start on transition, and can auto-advance to the next clip.
Every production needs titles, and Slate Portable includes a broadcast-quality Harris CG. Fill four channels of graphic stores from your CG or import graphics from anywhere.
Whether you want to drive your robotic cameras, your multi-format stream, an external video server or even the audio mixer, use your control surface to reach out and touch something.
Live production can be stressful in rapidly-changing situations, and Slate lowers production anxiety with its production-proven Fluent workflow, pulling in content from the rest of your studio to enrich your production. Whether you’re editing last-minute clips or creating quick graphics, simply drag them into a Fluent Watch Folder, and you’ll be notified of each addition. Fluent Rapid CG brings up-to-the second title updates, linked to databases and RSS feeds. And PowerAux can be a secondary output to the Internet or another screen.
