This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The iPixPanel application from Broadcast Pix, Inc. allows users of a Broadcast Pix™ Slate™, Mica™, Granite™ or Flint™ System to control their switcher system remotely from their iPad through a WiFi connection.
The iPixPanel is able to control every aspect of a video production, including switching cameras, adding graphics and clips, controlling robotic cameras and creating special effects like an interview with dual picture-in-picture -- directly from a handheld device.
The iPixPanel recreates a classic switcher layout, including auto transition and cut buttons, plus eight-input program and preview busses with shift for 16 inputs. It adds device controls for the graphics system, clips store, etc. It also features PixButtons, which dynamically change to show the device attached and even the file name currently loaded, so you can tell at a glance what is loaded on every input, key, and file library button.
To connect to your Broadcast Pix System enter the IP address of the workstation, which can be found under the Network Connections settings in the Windows Control Panel.

Not that broadcast pix users have any other choices and this review doesn't matter much but the app works great. It would be nice if there was a stripped version to all only partial control. Currently it gives the user full control of the switcher. I would use it for the power aux operator and he would sometimes hit the main program keys.
