Broadcast Pix Expands Dealer Network Overseas and in the U.S.

Pix Inc., the innovative production switcher manufacturer, has announced
significant growth through the expansion of its dealer network to over 40
countries around the world. Dealers in most countries have purchased a
Slate switcher demonstration unit. The Company introduced its largest
Slate switcher at IBC 2006, and is an exhibitor at the IBC 2007 convention in

Amsterdam this September
(Hall 7; Stand 116).

expansion of our dealer network has been phenomenal in recent months,” said Ken
Swanton, Broadcast Pix President. “We credit the increased interest to rapidly
growing sales with high-profile customers who find it an easy, nimble way to
create live television. Unlike other switchers, Slate has the rest of a
control room built-in, including monitoring, graphics and clips, so a solo operator
can create a high-end, polished production.”

customers in the

include ESPN, CBS, NBC and E! Entertainment Television. In
Europe, August sales include a third switcher for Marin,
a leading marine research organization in The Netherlands; a second for FMC
(Forsvartes Mediecenter) the television broadcast network for the Danish Armed
Forces; and one to RTV N-H (Radio+TV Noord-Holland).”

purchased a demo unit in June and as a result have sold many Slate switchers
since then,” said Anthony Cuellar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for
Snader, a premier San Francisco-based dealer. “Having a demo unit is
crucial, because it is hard for many people to believe that there is finally a
great live studio in a box, until they see the Slate demo.”

to David Hughes, Operations Manager for Broadcast Pix Europe, Africa, the
Middle East and India (EAMEI), “The labor savings
incurred with our Slate switcher is fueling strong interest throughout the
region. We now have installations in 21 countries in Europe alone,
ranging from national broadcasters, to regional broadcasters, production
houses, sports, game shows, ministries, schools and even a cathedral. The
applications are extremely varied.” The Broadcast Pix EAMEI operation is based in
Aalsmeer, The Netherlands.
