Ross Video launches Carbonite 10 switcher, AR solution

Ross Video has added Carbonite 10 to its expanding Carbonite switcher lineup. The company has also joined forces with Unreel to offer a complete plug and play solution that delivers network-quality augmented-reality graphics that integrate into any broadcast environment, with no green screen required. Carbonite 10 is a new 1 MLE control panel based on its successful bigger brothers, the Carbonite 1 and 1M but with 10 source select buttons instead of 16 or 24. Like the other switchers in the Carbonite range, the Carbonite 10 is available with 16 or 24 multi-definition SDI inputs and nine internally generated sources. Carbonite 10 can be configured with the new Carbonite+ and MultiMedia processing engines and comes with Ross Video’s LiveAssist and MediaManager graphical user interfaces. The Ross Video and Unreel AR solution is designed for broadcasters who wish to add virtual monitors and other 3D-graphic AR elements to their productions. It allows them to deliver graphics and live or stored video into their existing studio or field-based programming. The solution allows graphic elements to be positioned in 3D space as the camera moves, pans, tilts, or zooms. The UX AR control panel is designed to easily enable ‘AR Advertising’, a new revenue opportunity for broadcasters through the delivery of advertising and sponsorships within AR designs. The solution is pre-configured with a free set of included AR elements, so broadcasters can be on-air as quickly as possible. Upgrade options include an additional camera bundle, custom designed AR elements, and an upgrade to the UX virtual set edition, which adds the ability to support full realtime 3D virtual environments with camera tracking in a chromakey green- or blue-screen studio.
