A range of Ross Video workflow products are being exhibited here at IBC, from centralised graphics production workflow through to branding and ticker solutions.
One example is a tailormade solution centred around the latest version of the LCS intuitive touchscreen interface. This interface is being used by legislative organisations around the globe, who are taking advantage of it to automate their production environments and produce a high quality and consistent output for constituents.
Infrastructure is a necessary foundation for all the solutions being demonstrated on the Ross stand. To provide high quality, low latency video connections between locations connected via IP transport, new openGear modules are being shown that offer SFP Based SMPTE 2022 IP and VSF TR1 JPEG-2000 conversion solutions.
The new openGear modules include H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC contribution encoders to provide simultaneous support of DVB-ASI, broadcast video over IP, RTMP, and HTTP Live streaming, as well as 3G / HD / SD distribution amplifiers offered in single, dual and quad re-clocking and equalising models, with support for SMPTE 424M, SMPTE ST 292-1 and SMPTE 259 serial digital video signals at 3G, HD, and SD rates. There are also frame synchronisers to synchronise, time, and process both audio and video in 3G, high definition, and standard definition applications.
Also on show is the MC1 master control, which adds 3G 1080p support, channel ganging capability to switch multiple MC1’s in tandem, either manually or under automation, and audio features with the ability to remap audio channels and make adjustments to level presets to any audio source.
Ross is also showing its Acuity switcher, which offers enhanced processing power features. These include: full UHD (4K) production with 8 keys/16 channels of DVE per ME; MultiFeed configurable programme outputs with two preview and six programme outputs for every ME; plus 36 channels of system-wide Media Stores.
