NEWS IBC 2014 Pixel Power Stand RAI Amsterdam Conference 11-15 September 2014 Exhibition 12-16 September 2014 7.A31 P 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. www.pixelpower.com Dejero Stand 11.C21 A ppearing for the first time at IBC2014, the Dejero LIVE+ Booster is the newest member of Dejero’s LIVE+ family of news vehicle solutions.
