Carbonite Black, billed as a ‘production powerhouse’ by Ross Video, is being showcased along with the latest enhancements to the Carbonite family.
Carbonite Black is based on the original Carbonite, but with more I/O choices and production power, said the company. The 3ME Carbonite Black was unveiled at NAB 2015 to strong reception and orders, and here at IBC2015 the entire Carbonite family is being relaunched with new panels and features, while retaining an affordable price point.
Nigel Spratling, marketing product manager at Ross Video, said, “The new Carbonite Black family includes those processing engines that users are already familiar with, but adds choices for additional I/O and production power. In addition, we have completely redesigned the entire control panel range to combine the ease of use and operational familiarity with a sexy and stylish new look that users will be proud of.”
There are six new Carbonite Black panels in one, two and three ME row layouts with 16, 24 and 32 source buttons. The new Carbonite Black 2RU frame provides 36 x 22 I/O as standard and can be equipped with two or three MEs.
Ross said Carbonite Black fully integrates with the new XPression Trackless Studio virtual set system as the control surface for trackless virtual sets. It fully controls the XPression Clips production server for instant video playback. Also, the new Ultrix compact routing platform provides seamless integration of HD and 4K quad link or 12G single links with the Carbonite I/O.
