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.

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.
