How you bring a channel to air is as much a decision about your business as it is a choice of technology. Whether you are launching new channels, protecting existing ones or streamlining facilities, an integrated playout solution needs the flexibility and scalability to meet the specific needs of your business.

What you don’t need is compromise.

Pixel Power Channel Master


ChannelMaster is a complete integrated playout system used to maximize your brand, grow revenue, and ensure the integrity of your signal chain and your business.

ChannelMaster reduces the traditional, complex signal path for playout to a single efficient system. Now a minimal amount of equipment can be used to reach a diverse audience that uses multiple viewing platforms without sacrificing flexibility or capability. That means budgets for equipment and staff are not barriers to delivering compelling services.

The right fit

Working with Gallium or your existing automation and MAM systems, ChannelMaster’s simplified workflows enable broadcasters to make the most of their digital channels. We’ve leveraged our experience in branding—from the critical little things like placing logos and sponsorship graphics to automating complex template graphics—to ensure the right look is delivered to air. Creatively streamlined workflows abstract away the barriers to success.

ChannelMaster Duo *New

ChannelMaster Duo is a two-channel configuration of our ChannelMaster system delivering two independent channels simultaneously from a single system. This dramatically lowers the cost of delivering a channel and expands the options available to playout centers and other multi-channel facilities.

ChannelMaster Duo is fully compatible with, and upgradeable to, any other ChannelMaster configuration including ChannelMaster Clips and ChannelMaster 3D. This adaptability provides tremendous flexibility to address changing playout requirements over time.
