Ross Video has released the ADA-8401, which supports audio sampling frequencies of 30kHz-192kHz, provides eight copies of the incoming signal, configures to four copies for high-density distribution in the DFR-8320 platform and provides full signal monitoring with Ross Video’s Dashboard.

The openGear line is an open-architecture, 2RU modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by more than 17 different terminal equipment manufacturers. The openGear system offers clients the freedom to choose the best technology from a wide range of manufacturer’s products to meet the needs of a broadcast, production or distribution facility while maintaining a compatible openGear frame infrastructure. The Ross Dashboard Remote Control and Monitoring System and companion SNMP plug-in enables unified control over all openGear cards in a system as well as for openGear to tie in with third-party SNMP-based systems. The openGear modules offered from Ross include a broad selection of audio and video products for distribution, analog conversion, up/down/crossconversion, fiber, switching, keying and synchronization as well as backward compatibility with a suite of solutions from the RossGear 8000 series.
