News Release

For Immediate Release

Iroquois, ON, Canada – April 1, 2010 – Ross Video announces XPression Live CG, a version of XPression Designer exclusive to the CrossOver series of production switchers.

XPression Live CG renders still graphics on a laptop or PC running Nvidia Graphics, sending the stills with alpha over a network directly into the CrossOver Media Store channels.

“Stills are typically selected, rendered, transferred and on-air in less than two seconds,” said David Ross, CEO, Ross Video. “XPression offers a user friendly playlist system that makes bringing the next still to air as easy as pressing a space bar.”

XPression Designer can be upgraded at any time to a full system that incorporates real time motion graphics playout over HD-SDI. It is fully compatible with all of the files and templates created with the stills package using CrossOver Media Store Integration. CrossOver software v2.5 or later is required for support of the RossLink connection and is available at a download for current CrossOver users.
