NBN Television selects Pixel Power’s BrandMaster broadcast graphics system for their channel branding

Gencom Technology’s business partner Pixel Power has been selected by NBN Television to streamline their channel branding using the new BrandMaster system. BrandMaster is the first master control switcher that combines a complete suite of automated broadcast graphic tools and full master control functionality in a single integrated device.

BrandMaster streamlines the signal transmission chain significantly – reducing the amount of equipment, power consumption and total cost to deliver a uniquely branded broadcast channel. It is also easily deployed for single and multi-channel environments and supports both standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) video formats.

Mike O’Connell, Vice President, Business Development at Pixel Power said, ’Because BrandMaster is designed to operate directly from the point of transmission it provides quicker playout, requires less manpower and doesn’t need any extra hardware. The system also offers the ongoing flexibility of software upgrades.’

Steve Brown, Digital Services Manager at NBN Television said, ‘We chose BrandMaster because it offered the best value for money for master switching and branding options. It has also integrated very easily and quickly with our existing systems.’

Ray Sanders, Gencom Technology’s CEO said,’ This sale further reflects the acceptance of BrandMaster within the Australian market.’
