Full studio systems live at NAB

Demonstration stations for sports, news, events and worship productions enable clients to book a demo that relates to the production type of their choosing. A combination of Vision, Carbonite and CrossOver production switchers combined with XPression graphics systems, BlackStorm playout servers and Ross Robotics systems comprise Ross Studio Systems. Ross is showing a live demonstration of a fully integrated virtual studio production and augmented reality system. VS & AR partner Unreel provides tracking integration and control via Unreel UX – tying together Ross’ graphics, switchers, robotics and automation technology. The Vision Series production switchers show the latest enhancements to Ross’ flagship large production switchers with version 16 software continuing to add even more production and effects capabilities. Celebrating over 1,000 units shipped, the rapidly expanding Carbonite family includes Ross’ latest control panels the C2 (compact) and C2X (extended) as well as the new MultiMedia and Plus video processing engines. Carbonite ViewControl – available free – is a must see. This new touch screen control technology integrates Carbonite, XPression Graphics Systems and BlackStorm Playout Servers into a simple and intuitive live user interface. The OverDrive APC system gets even better with a re-engineered newsroom plug-in that streamlines the preparation process, allowing productions to get to air faster, with less effort and fewer mistakes. V14 adds customer driven features like trailing audio support, colour coding to easily identify incoming MOS elements, automated multi-platform publishing, and a remote database option for multi-site production. Inception Social Media Management enables clients to take control of social media, providing a single tool to create, publish and incorporate content from Twitter, Facebook or the web into productions. V5 rounds out the product with the addition of a one-time search engine and polling support. N3808
