For many years Pixel Power has been at the leading edge of broadcast playout, master control, workflow automation, graphics and branding. With many innovations that are now at the centre of television graphics, workflow and playout, Pixel Power is continuing to lead the transition to the new world of software-defined, virtualisable solutions.
Two new technology platforms underpin a range of solutions that enable broadcasters to make the move to IP and do so at their own speed and with solutions tailored specifically to their needs in ways that were never possible before.
Flexible, bespoke, modular and with completely new pricing models, these new technology platforms offer broadcasters the opportunity to acquire just the features or functional blocks that they need and only pay for them when they use them. The days of buying a hardware product where you only use 60% of the features 40% of the time are gone.
Gallium Workflow Orchestration is the underlying technology platform upon which a variety of innovative solutions are based that enable broadcasters to manage and improve workflows when automating the delivery of content to air, to VOD/Catch-up or multi-platform services. The solutions described below are based on innovative workflow solutions already installed with broadcasters worldwide. Currently, broadcasters are saving significant costs by deploying intelligent, automated workflow and playout solutions based on the Gallium Workflow Orchestration technology platform.
With Pixel Power you only pay for what you use when you use it.
Gallium Workflow Orchestration allows broadcasters to execute workflow tasks with media content. This enables a broadcaster to automate linear channel playout, automate addition/ removal of graphics, branding or logos, package content or regionalise/localise content according to business demands.
