ixel Power, the innovative supplier of broadcast graphics and playout solutions, is set to transform social media
integration with the launch of Buzz at IBC 2014. Buzz is a software accessory for Pixel Powers range of graphics-
based playout devices which makes it simple to scan, moderate and broadcast social media interactions.
Producers everywhere recognise the importance of social media, said James Gilbert, CEO of Pixel Power. To be able
to take what your audience is saying about you and put it on screen quickly and safely is a huge advantage. Buzz puts
this at anyones fingertips.
Before tweets and other audience comments can be broadcast they have to be selected to ensure only the most
relevant and appropriate make it to the screen. Existing solutions to do this tend to be complex, costly and time
consuming to implement.
Buzz transforms this by using an integration approach and a user interface so simple that virtually no training is
required. Multiple social media feeds are consolidated, and because Buzz is integrated within a Pixel Power graphics
device users can accept, format and publish messages with a single click.
