Broadcast Pix Roadie

Mobile Integrated Production Switchers


Easily Create Compelling Live Video on the most integrated Switchers


Powerful, rugged and ready for the road, Broadcast Pix Roadie™ was built to simplify and streamline live production on location.

Roadie is the mobile integrated production switcher that features built-in HD streaming and recording, our patented automation and control technologies, optimized production workflows and a built-in production toolset. Roadie can automatically connect to the Internet, cloud-based content and social media, allowing you to broadcast or stream in real-time with dedicated lip-sync protection. Confidently broadcast and stream using Roadie's built-in 17 inch HD display, included keyboard and mouse, or built-in virtual panel (just add a second touchscreen). Roadie can also be controlled by adding an optional Broadcast Pix control panel, or using your own tablet or smartphone via the iPixPanel control app. Ideal as a standalone solution, or the perfect companion to other Broadcast Pix switchers, Roadie's rugged design will empower even a single operator to easily create dynamic live video from any location.
