Pixel Power has announced that it will demonstrate its StreamMaster solution at IBC2016, Stand 7.A31.

Following the launch of StreamMaster earlier this year, Pixel Power has delivered and installed tailored, virtualised playout platforms for major broadcasters worldwide. Using a software-defined infrastructure, the company is redefining the cost of playout for channels including pop-up and disaster recovery.

This is achieved without compromising on functionality: StreamMaster includes real-time DVE and 3D graphics, mixing of live feeds using the built-in software master control switcher, and intelligent automated branding and cross-channel promotion.

"The opportunities that virtualisation and the cloud open up are transformative and positive for the industry, and Pixel Power with its experience in no-compromise software and image quality is ideally placed to deliver on those opportunities," said James Gilbert, CEO of Pixel Power. "Recently we have been working with forward- looking broadcasters who understand both the challenges and the benefits of the cloud, and we have already installed solutions that deliver the performance they expect to protect their brand."

At IBC 2016, Pixel Power is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to demonstrate live, linear playout from the cloud, covering every level of schedule sophistication and incorporating realtime DVE and graphics.

The demonstrations will cover simple channel playout where the schedule is fixed and there are no live events, through dynamic playout with live events to complex premium channels including reactive scheduling, for instance around sports events whose end time is not known.

"For almost 30 years, Pixel Power has concentrated on protecting and promoting the greatest asset of our broadcaster customers, their brand," continued Gilbert. "That remains the cornerstone of our new products like StreamMaster: ensuring that channels meet and exceed the expectations of their audiences through flawless, engaging and attractive delivery."

Alongside the cloud demonstrations of StreamMaster, Pixel Power will display its full range of graphics and workflow products including new releases of Pixel Factory, Pixel Promote, and the Clarity Graphics system.
