Broadcast Pix is showcasing Roadie, a mobile integrated production switcher. With built-in HD streaming and recording, as well as Broadcast Pix’s patented Fluent Control toolset, Roadie delivers a complete end-to-end production workflow that simplifies and streamlines live production on location for a single operator or small staff.
Ruggedized for location work, Roadie weighs about 20 pounds and features an aluminum alloy chassis. The integrated 17.3-inch HD display is a resistive touchscreen with a scratch resistant top coat. Roadie’s multiformat 1 M/E production switcher features three SDI/HDMI inputs and one SDI/HDMI/analog input, eight internal channels (two clip and six graphics), one SDI/HDMI/analog out, four balanced (1/4-inch TRS) and two AES (BNC) audio I/O. Roadie can input embedded audio and mix it with clip audio.
Roadie also includes built-in Wi-Fi as well as two network inputs to accommodate a hotspot for connecting to cloud-based services or connecting an iPad for system control.
