“Economy is important to multi-channel broadcasters, but not if comes at the expense of the quality of a channel’s output,” said James Gilbert, Pixel Power joint managing director. “ChannelMaster, like our BrandMaster system before it, is a no compromise solution that gives all the playout functionality broadcasters expect, plus the branding and promotion capability they need to create compelling channels. We are very proud that the expert panel at TV Technology has again recognized the superior value in the approach to systems consolidation taken by Pixel Power.”
ChannelMaster integrates storage, graphics, DVE, subtitling, master control, live feed and long-form video playout within a single dedicated hardware platform that enables broadcasters to avoid the cost and complexity of traditional playout chains.

All of the hardware components and software functionality within ChannelMaster work seamlessly together to quickly and reliably bring a channel on air.
