Pure Production Power
Real Switcher. Real Graphics. Real Audio. Graphite is an all-inclusive system that combines superb big switcher performance with visually stunning 3D graphics,
instant access clip servers and pristine audio clarity – all with the reliability of separate system components.
Compact Production Solution
A single 4RU chassis houses the production switcher, audio mixer, graphics system and clip players. This simplifies connectivity and reduces space, power, and electrical requirements.
Thanks to its unique dedicated hardware, Graphite is immune to performance issues that are commonly associated with traditional all-in-one platforms.
Graphite is designed to be a complete production solution right out of the box. Setup and configuration is simple and straightforward and the system even includes customizable graphics packages designed to get production up and running faster and more easily.
Using Graphite’s extensive toolset and intuitive controls, a single operator can manage an entire show using a single tabbed DashBoard screen. For a distributed workflow with separate operators (T.D., Audio, Graphics, etc.), simply connect multiple DashBoard computers together.
Graphite’s M/E count and input matrix can be easily upgraded via cost-effective software licenses. Additional hardware and software components that enable production automation, MOS workflows, or multi-studio operations can be added at any time.
Graphite is the product of 40+ years of switcher experience and engineering excellence. Graphite combines proven hardware components with world-class software applications to create a powerful set of production tools that is backed by an acknowledged industry leader.
