(Billerica, Massachusetts--September 25, 2012) Broadcast Pix™ today announced that the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (AHEC) is using a Granite™ 1000 Video Control Center™ to produce archives of historical lectures and other presentations on its campus in Carlisle, Penn. Part of the U.S. Army War College, the museum and research complex hosts regularly scheduled series of historical lectures, as well as conferences, meetings, and major events.
The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center uses a Broadcast Pix Granite 1000 Video Control Center to produce historical lectures for its archives.
Lectures are conducted in a 250-seat multi-purpose room, which is equipped with four Panasonic HD cameras that are controlled through the Granite. Housed in a small control room near the multi-purpose room, the integrated production
system allows a one-person crew to produce and record the lectures.
Granite's built-in Fluent-View multi-viewer feeds source and program images to a 32-inch monitor in the control room, while the built-in Harris Inscriber GS CG is used for graphics during some lectures. When a speaker uses PowerPoint slides, copies are usually acquired before the lecture so they can be used as another source during the recorded program.
The Broadcast Pix system has been used about three times per month since the system went online in December 2011. AHEC is considering a second Broadcast Pix system for another room and could purchase additional units if the center expands its campus.
The AHEC tells the Army's story "one soldier at a time" through personal and official correspondence, manuscripts, photos, artifacts, and oral history programs. Much of the center's collection has been digitized and is available at http://www.usahec.org,
including recent presentations from the "Perspectives in Military History" lecture series and "Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Readings in Military History" series.
