Pixel Power Supplies OB Trucks

News Image
Pixel Power, supplier of broadcast graphics and playout solutions, has delivered a further four Clarity graphics systems to South African national broadcaster SABC.

The workstations will be used in the broadcaster's fleet of OB trucks, matching the capabilities to the studios in Johannesburg, which already have eight Clarity systems.
Standardising on Pixel Power Clarity enables designers to create common looks and develop graphics without concerns about technical limitations. The common platform allows staff to move between studios and remote operations.
The contract, negotiated by Pixel Power's South African distributor Zimele Broadcasting Solutions, includes integration, training and development services alongside the supply of hardware and software. The new Clarity units were installed in the OB trucks in time for coverage of the South African elections in May 2014, allowing the broadcaster to use common templates across the whole of the output.
"Clarity gives us creative freedom, but also simple and secure operation which is critical on a live outside broadcast," said Mervin Buthelezi, technical manager for outside broadcasts at SABC. "We got fed up with borrowing a Clarity from the studios when we needed one, so we bought one for each of our big trucks. We know we can count on Pixel Power to keep us on air."
For Pixel Power, CEO James Gilbert said: "We have had a long and fruitful relationship with SABC, and we have a strong dialogue with them on how we might develop our graphics technology in future. Installing Clarity graphics in the outside broadcast fleet is another important step in that relationship, and we are pleased to be helping SABC achieve a consistent look – technically and creatively – across the whole of their in-house output."
