Mica 2000 switcher controls: The professional switcher layout accesses up to 16 sources directly. There are controls for 6 key layers.
Mica 2000 device controls: The patented bank of device controls enable you to intimately control the built-in clip store, animation store, and multiple graphics stores. The PixPad lets you access any clip or graphic, and there’s a 3D joystick, knobs and motion buttons. This same control bank also lets you control external devices as well, such as robotic cameras, recorders or streamers. The panel has 11 device selection buttons.
PixButtons: Broadcast Pix patented PixButtons show the device and file-name of each source and key layer, and on the PixPad. Switch with confidence.
Fluent-View™: Enjoy the most powerful heads-up display in the industry - called Fluent-View, as it’s fluent in both video and file-based content. See all video sources in crisp, full motion. See four outputs: Program, Preview, PowerAux and Clean Feed. See file-based sources and their content libraries. See each of your key layers in a window. Add clocks, counters and timers.
Customizable Fluent-View: unlike ordinary multi-views, Mica’s Fluent-View is fully customizable across two monitors. Choose what windows you want, the size you want, where you want them. Even replicate a window, like program output, on both monitors.
Fluent Macros: The 2000 panel has a dedicated row of 16 Macro buttons and 16 more are accessible with shift. Add one-button magic to your production with the only memory system that combines switcher moves with recalls of specific clips and graphics. Add cameras moves as well. Triple box interviews. Graphic transitions. Fluent Macros can make a novice look like a pro.
Virtual Sets: Easily create powerful virtual sets from green screens on up to 8 cameras, and then add 3 key layers on top. Use included sets, or use the image editor to make a virtual set out of any picture, transporting you anywhere.
Control External Devices: Whether you want to drive robotic cameras, a multi-format stream, an external video recorder or server, or even an audio mixer, use your control surface to reach out and touch something.
Fluent Watch-folders: Instantly access new clips and graphics during a show. Whether you’re editing last-minute clips or creating quick graphics, simply drag them into a Fluent Watch Folder, and you’ll be notified of each addition right on the Fluent-View status bar.
Fluent Rapid CG 2 (optional): Automate your CG by linking it to a database, RSS feeds, action buttons, EZNews system, or a Daktronics Controller for Scoreboards.
Dual Control: Use PowerAux to control a second composition on a secondary output to the Internet or to a second screen.
Distribute Control: While one operator can create great video, you can add seats for a special show adding a graphics operator, or additional operators on SoftPanels running on an iPad, iPhone, Android or laptop.
Non-Stop On-Air Control: Broadcast Pix systems are known for stability so you are always on air. The panel has redundant power standard, and if the panel should ever stop, you can still switch on the Fluent-view or SoftPanel.
