Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced that the State Distance Education University (UNED) in Costa Rica is using a Slate™ 1000 video production systems at the heart of its new mobile video production unit, which is being used for distance education and other live productions.

The State Distance Education University (UNED) in Costa Rica is using a Broadcast Pix Slate 1000 video production system in its new mobile unit to produce distance education classes and live event productions.

According to Alejandro Astorga, audiovisual producer for UNED, the new mobile unit was delivered in March and is being used for at least five programs per month. “It’s been used on distance education classes and live event production,� Astorga explained. “Specifically, we´re producing a serial of lab videos for the Chemistry Professorship. Also, we´ve recorded conferences and debates at our auditorium, and provided coverage of our XV International Congress on Distance Education and Technology in November. We have several projects in development that will need the mobile unit to travel extensively next year.� The mobile unit was designed by Sonivisión, S.A., and features three Sony cameras with Canon lenses, plus a Mackie audio mixer, in addition to the Broadcast Pix system. Video is produced in widescreen SD. UNED relies on the Slate’s built-in workflow tools during productions, including Fluent™ Multi-View and Clip Store, as well as its integrated Inscriber CG. “Before the mobile unit, we only had portable ENG equipment,� Astorga recalled. “The Broadcast Pix system allows us to utilize virtual sets with multiple cameras through chromakey.�

Designed for small studios or compact production trucks, the 1 M/E Slate 1000 features a control panel with a classic switcher layout. It offers four live inputs (expandable to eight) and four outputs (expandable to five), and its innovative PixButtons include built-in displays that show icons for the device types and file names. Plus, the built-in chromakey offers exceptional performance for blue and green wall sets, and allows control over key softness and spill suppression.
