|The Broadcast Pix Slate 3000 is an enhanced version of the Slate 1000 which provides more inputs, more outputs and more redundancy thanks to an integrated router. The Slate 3000 includes all of the Fluent workflow tools as in the Slate 1000, plus it’s Fluent clip store is dual channel. Compare with other Slate models |
The Slate 3000’s enhancements over the Slate 1000 are described below. For more information all of the other features of the on the Slate 3000 see the Slate 1000 .
Slate 3000 includes an Integrated Router
The primary difference between a Slate 3000 and a Slate 1000, is that the Slate 3000 includes an integrated router. There are two Slate 3000 models. The Slate 3016 includes a 16x16 router, and the Slate 3032 includes a 32x32 router. Both models are available in either HD/SD or SD only configurations. If you would like an hybrid router with analog and SD SDI I/O, see the Slate 2100 .
Added Features beyond those on the Slate 1000
● More SDI Inputs
Slate 3016 has 12 inputs for cameras and other external sources, up from 8 in the Slate 1000, plus like the 1000, the 3016 also has many integrated clip and graphic stores which do not consume these external inputs. These 12 inputs are available as either HD/SD or SD only.
Slate 3032 has 28 inputs for cameras and other external sources, of which up to 18 of them may be used in any one show as the control panel and mapped to the panel’s 9 buttons and 9 shifted buttons. Plus like the 1000, the 3016 also has many integrated clip and graphic stores which do not consume these external inputs. These 18 inputs are available as either HD/SD or SD only.
● More SDI Outputs
Slate 3016 provides 8 SDI outputs from the integrated router, which can be used for program, preview, or an auxiliary output of any camera or other external input. In addition, the 3016 also has 2 additional SD SDI outputs, and 1 analog output, which are output from the Slate boards.
Slate 3032 provides 24 SDI outputs from the integrated router, which can be used for program, preview, or an auxiliary output of any camera or other external input. In addition, the 3032 also has 2 additional SD SDI outputs, and 1 analog output, which are output from the Slate boards.
| ● More Redundancy |
Slate 3000 provides even more redundancies than the Slate 1000 for non-stop on-air reliability, thanks its integrated router. A redundant control system enables the panel to keep switching even if the workstation ever stops, or is even unplugged. You can still preview cameras and take them to air.
Slate 3000 models also include as standard equipment redundant power for the control panel and the router.
The Slate 3000 also has the redundancies of the Slate 1000. Its switching and layering “heavy lifting” is done on Broadcast Pix hardware boards, inside the Broadcast Pix workstation, so as not to burden the system. Unlike conventional switchers, every Slate 5000 system has a redundant control panel in software. So if you were to accidently spill a Coke on you physical panel in the middle of a show and it stopped, you can keep going on your SoftPanel.
for non-stop on-air
| ● Fluent Clips enhanced with Dual Channels |
The second channel of clips in standard on all Slate 3000 models, and optional on the Slate 1000. In addition to providing two channels clips, this also doubles the capacity of the clip store to 500GB, which enables it to hold up to 100 hours of clips.
