Ross Video announced today Egyptian Radio & Television Union (ERTU) has invested in three Ross Synergy 2 Standard Definition (SD) Production Switchers to upgrade three mobile trucks.
In late June 2007 ERTU was in the market for three new production switchers to upgrade their OB Vans for the Arab Sports Championship to be held in Cairo, Egypt this November. ERTU conducted a thorough evaluation and based on past experience awarded Ross Video the tender.
ERTU has previously purchased four Synergy 3 SD switchers from Ross and has been extremely satisfied with their performance. This experience played a key role in the technical evaluation of current switchers available in the marketplace.
“Ross Synergy is an excellent product, we will be well equipped to cover the upcoming Arab Sports Championship,” said Chief Director of Studio Projects, ERTU. “Our OB trucks cover many live sports productions and Ross delivers reliable equipment at an effective price point.”
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with ERTU by providing superior solutions for their live production needs,” said Saeid Nejad, Regional Sales Manager, Middle East, North Africa, Ross Video. “Synergy is a great choice for OB Trucks, the switcher offers flexibility and outstanding performance for live sports productions.”
The Synergy standard definition series of digital production switchers are multi-purpose switchers used to work in virtually any live production environment. The Synergy line is a family of production switchers using a common hardware and software base. It is easy to upgrade to a larger model by adding more processing boards into the rack frame and swapping in a larger control panel. Synergy offers a complete growth path to HD with the MD/X and Vision lines of digital production switchers.
