Billerica, Massachusetts – Today Broadcast Pix™ has made available for download the release version of its new Fluent Rapid CG™ 2 software option for its Granite™ and Mica™ Video Control Centers™. The second-generation software can be integrated with Daktronics scoreboards controllers so as scores, clock, and other data change on a scoreboard, Fluent Rapid CG 2 automatically updates graphics created within Broadcast Pix’s built-in Harris Inscriber CG. Broadcast Pix will demonstrate the new functionality at InfoComm 2012, which runs June 13-15 in Las Vegas, Nev. (Booth C7345).
“From international soccer matches to high school football, sports is a dominant presence in live production,” said Ken Swanton, CEO, Broadcast Pix. “With support for scoreboards for multiple sports, Fluent Rapid CG 2 makes it easier than ever for Broadcast Pix Video Control Centers to deliver data-intensive CG graphics during live game coverage for Internet, television, and in-stadium audiences.”
The new Fluent-Rapid CG 2 software operates with Daktronics All Sport 3000, 5000, or 5500 series scoreboard control consoles. Supported scoreboards include baseball, basketball, football, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball. All information on the scoreboard can be attached to on-air CG templates. Plus, Fluent-Rapid CG 2 can use a second channel to supply player statistics and graphics from a database.
A free upgrade for current Rapid CG customers, it also provides faster updates, clocks by-the-second, and dual-channel capabilities to update two different on-air graphics at once. It also automatically integrates RSS feeds and custom action buttons. Beyond live sports, Fluent Rapid CG 2 is ideal for all data intensive graphic applications, including election results, and it provides integration with EZNews for easy news automation applications.
