News Release

For Immediate Release

Iroquois, ON, Canada – August 17, 2009 – Ross Video is introducing an openGear 3 Gb/s capable HD/SD 16 channel audio multiplexer/demultiplexer at IBC 2009. The new MUX/DMX compliments Ross’ existing distribution and conversion line.

The new series of audio multiplexer’s and demultiplexer’s have 8 AES/EBU input/output (16 channels) capability, offering a comprehensive audio proc to allow complete control over the insertion and extraction of audio.

Following our recent Fiber development, the multiplexer and demultiplexer is also available as a single card solution with Fiber input and output, simplifying and extending signal path distances.

“The audio proc offers channel invert, gain and delay with AES summing, swap and shuffle while the Mux offers 16 internal sample rate converters to manage non synchronous audio sources,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Marketing Product Manager, openGear. ”The cards allow for locking to house reference via the frame reference input which guarantees proper audio insertion even on loss of video input.”

The dedicated input BNC’s for video and audio eliminate the need for any break out cables, they are easy to install and serviceable. A complete interface to the DashBoard control application is also included with configurable alarming with silence detection.

“Included in this release, Ross is also introducing a 4 input/output analog audio and an 8 input/output analog audio version,” said Eric Goodmurphy. “It is based on the identical design of the digital 8 AES/EBU product, and offering the same comprehensive audio proc functionality. With a digital 8 AES/EBU, 8 analog audio and 4 analog audio version for multiplexing and de-multiplexing, Ross will definitely meet the needs of all applications.”
