For Immediate Release

Iroquois, ON, Canada – January 26, 2009 – Gallaudet University revamps and renovates productions within their Academic Technology – Video Services with a Vision 2 QMD Multi-Definition Digital Production Switcher, moving them towards higher quality video with HD video production capability.

Based in Washington, DC, Gallaudet University first used Vision in a full studio production in October 2008. The production is a bi-weekly address / talkshow / information sharing program hosted by Dr. Robert Davilla, the President of the University for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. The program is highly regarded and seen on the Gallaudet website by viewers around the world.

“The Vision 2 QMD’s flexibility and power of its integrated systems was key in our decision to go with Ross,” said Patrick Harris, Senior Video Systems Administrator / Academic Technology. “It now stands as the centre piece of a fully digital studio production system living within a larger analog / digital hybrid facility.”

Gallaudet has also installed various RossGear conversion and distribution equipment and has purchased a CrossOver MD, Ross’ newest line of compact production switchers. CrossOver will be installed in one of Gallaudet’s smaller facilities on campus for academic courses and for student use.

“It’s a great honor to have Gallaudet University invest in Ross technology,” said David Ross, CEO. “Gallaudet has a reputation for outstanding graduate programs for the deaf and hard-of hearing and knowing that Ross will be part of that is an amazing accomplishment.”
