Xpression boost and compact switcher for Ross

Ross Video is showing live demonstrations of XPression VS, its virtual set system, on the showfloor. Developed with Dutch company Unreel Pictures, it adds camera tracking, in addition to ‘trackless’ functionality, to virtual set environments, writes Michael Burns.

The system is part of several enhancements to the XPression live graphics platform that are premiering at IBC. The XPression Project Server is a collaborative creation and media distribution product that allows users to share projects and move media within a facility or across an entire enterprise, while the XPression NLE plug-in for Grass Valley Aurora editing systems adds to XPression’s existing support for Avid Media Composer and Newscutter. Finally, XPression Prime is a new lower-cost version of the main system, with a streamlined feature set designed to fit into tight budgets.

Ross has also unveiled the new Carbonite 1M – 1 MLE control panel at IBC. It can control two full MLEs via its unique MLE swap function and shares all the same features of its larger Carbonite 2M sibling.

The Carbonite 1M is a feature-rich control surface providing single button access for up to 24 sources as well as instant access to Carbonite’s powerful custom control macros, advanced transitions and multi-function menu buttons.
It’s designed with very high-end capabilities,” said Jeff Moore (pictured), Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Ross Video. “It offers the same chromakey technology and 10-bit signal processing as our large switcher [the Carbonite 2].”

“The Carbonite 1M is aimed at anybody with a compact studio who needs to do productions on a budget, such as small news operations and educational establishment,” continued Moore. “This product is also ideal for any live situation including sports stadiums, houses of worships, big screen productions and rock concerts.”

Shipping now, a fully loaded 1 MLE, 16-input Carbonite 1M system costs $27,995 while a 24 input system is $29,995.
Moore said there had been a lot of interest at IBC in the Carbonite product line. “This is our big introduction to Europe with these switchers and the Carbonite 1M is really the icing on the cake.”
