Model Details

Granite 5000
2 M/E Integrated Production System
The Granite 5000 features a large full-function 2 M/E (Mix/Effect)
switcher panel to harness the power of a 2M/E Granite System.
Broadcast Pix provides the only full 2 M/E systems that access
both video and file-based content.
2 M/E’s allow you to set up powerful looks on an M/E wholly
separate from the one on which you do your main switching.
You also have the power to drive a dual-screen production with
full control of each, and add even more screens with auxiliary
outputs. Or, produce two shows tailored to different audiences.
Broadcast Pix brings dual M/E power at a surprising price.

Powerful and Redundant

Granite is our highest capacity, most redundant system with the

most options. It includes a Granite Switcher and a Granite Server.

Built-in redundancies include redundant power in both and in the

panel, redundant switching even if the Granite server should ever

stop, and redundant control using Fluent-View if the panel should

ever stop. The premium storage option adds redundant RAID5 clips.

Granite Switcher

The switcher runs 1080i native and takes 11 SDI video inputs (22

optional), and 7 channels of file-based inputs from the Granite Server.

Each SDI input automatically detects 1080i, 720p or an SD source - the LED color

tells you which format is in use. There is a frame synchronizer and aspect correction

on each input. 6 keys are standard, and DVEs enables up to 4 PiP boxes. There are 6

SDI (12 optional) and 2 DVI outputs. Output multiple formats, and use the built-in

router to send any SDI input to any SDI output. Create a second or third composited

output with PowerAuxes or another M/E. Output audio from the clip and animation


Granite Server

Granite’s dedicated server provides a channel of clips, 2 channels of animations,

and 4 channels of graphics. The clip store holds up to 60 hours of H.264, ProRes and

DNxHD clips plus animations, expandable to up to 180 hours. The Inscriber CG is

from Harris Broadcast. The server runs the Fluent-View display, Fluent Macros, and
