ChannelMaster from Pixel Power is a brand new, highly integrated playout solution that combines the functions of video server, graphics engine, branding, audio voiceover, open subtitling and master control switcher integrated into a single 3RU rack mounted chassis for single or dual channel playout depending on configuration. With two video inputs and upstream router control, ChannelMaster’s™ radical approach to playout combines core automation competency, live content master control (with preview) and total system reliability with no compromise branding and graphics, at a stroke solving the issues other channel-in-a-box systems can’t.

ChannelMaster can be controlled by Pixel Power’s automation and management system Gallium and is also fully capable of integration with existing automation and asset management systems by way of an open XML protocol.
