BURLINGTON, Massachusetts (September 25, 2006) Broadcast Pix™ Inc. today announced the delivery of its 200th system. The customer, PBS affiliate, WLAE-TV in New Orleans, recently installed a Broadcast Pix 2000 switcher in a remote truck being used by the station’s production company, LAE Productions. LAE Productions won a contract to begin broadcasting area high school football games on the local cable system, Cox Cable of Baton Rouge. The first game was broadcast live on August 25th.
“Broadcast Pix was the only switcher that featured a built-in CG and clip store,” said Ron Yager, Station Manager, WLAE-TV and LAE Productions. “We can complete a production with our new switcher and never need to run anything through post.
