Ross Video launches new budget-sensitive switchers16 May 2013
Ross Video has launched Vision Tritium – 3MLE production switchers that combine the Vision Octane featureset within what the company describes as “an incredibly budget sensitive” new package.
Vision Tritium essentially encompasses a full 3MLE modular production switcher with 48 x 32 Multi-Definition inputs and outputs, six real 3D DVEs, 16 channels of internal media stores, 16 keyers, UltraChrome chroma keys, built in Dual Head MultiViewers, external device controls and much more all wrapped up inside a very affordable package.
With Vision Tritium, Ross’ customers can now own a Vision series modular 3MLE panel with a choice of 24 or 32 direct access crosspoint buttons. Vision’s unique AuxKeys, Colour Correction and MultiDSK are included in Tritium’s extensive feature set and is fully compatible with standard Vision Octane options. Tritium also offers the ability to convert to a full Vision Octane 3G system as production needs change.
“This is a very exciting announcement,” stated Nigel Spratling, Switcher Business Development Manager, Ross Video. “With Tritium there is no basic package – no options necessary, as the system is fully loaded with an amazingly powerful feature set that is unmatched. .When we introduced Carbonite we reset expectations for cost and performance of 1 and 2MLE systems, and I am convinced Tritium will do the same thing. All the power and modularity of Vision rolled into a truly cost effective new package.”
Tritium comes with all of the Ross protocols for full integration with XPression Graphics and BlackStorm Playout Servers. It also talks to Ross’ DashBoard Control System and can provide control of entire productions, as well as build task specific control interfaces via DashBoards’ unique PanelBuilder application. Tritium is also fully compatible with Ross’ industry leading OverDrive Automated Production Control system.
Available Tritium models include the Tritium V3M with a 24 button 3MLE panel, and Tritium V3 with a 32 button panel. Vision Tritium – The Budget Friendly Powerhouse, are available for immediate delivery.
