Skype TX

Skype TX header

Skype TX is designed specifically for a broadcast environment. How many times have we seen low quality video calls on air, with incorrect aspect ratios, low bandwidth and the kind of pop-ups and interruptions you’d only expect to see on your desktop PC?

Skype TX eliminates these problems completely, by supplying an easy to use hardware and software combination that allows Skype video calls from anywhere in the world to be seamlessly integrated into any production.

The main benefits of using Skype TX are –

  • Skype TX hardware and software is straightforward to setup  and integrate into any gallery, machine room or Outside Broadcast.  Kinetic Pixel have experts on hand who will handle the rollout and configuration of the software and hardware, and operate the system too if requred.
  • The hardware has been designed for use in a studio environment, with call output in full frame HD-SDI with either embedded or balanced audio.
  • The return feed to the caller can also be send as HD-SDI with balanced audio, enabling the best experience possible for your contributors.
  • Video and audio are free from all notifications, adverts or pop-ups
  • Skype TX takes care of aspect ratio mismatches automatically, and the software operator has full control over screen aspect ratios using the Skype TX software.

Kinetic Pixel have been involved with the Skype TX platform since the early betas in Spring 2014. As a trusted partner to the Skype In Media team our feedback and suggestions from using the platform in the field has led directly to improvements and features in the final product.

Our experience integrating Skype TX on productions such as Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (Fresh One) and Embarrassing Bodies : Live From The Clinic (Maverick for C4) put us in a unique position of not only having experience of configuring and rolling out Skype TX, but also integration into broadcast graphics systems, automatic call handling and advanced integration and automation of audio and video routing allowing full control of the return audio and video feeds to the contributors.
