Ross Video to Launch SoftMetal Video Servers
At NAB2007, Ross Video is set to launch a new line of next-generation video servers. The new SoftMetal Video Servers will deliver a more integrated production solution that will complement the Ross Synergy Digital Production Switchers and OverDrive Production Control System.

SoftMetal servers incorporate key elements including multidefinition capability. As a multidefinition server, SoftMetal comes equipped with on-the-fly scaling on every output, converting clips from SD to HD or HD to SD automatically as they play to air. In a production setting, SoftMetal provides support for completing the graphics workflows by accepting networked transfers of Targa Stills, Targa Animations and pre-compressed graphics clips with available SoftMetal CODECs.

SoftMetal control is based on a client/server architecture with the client side applications written in Java and able to run on a Mac, PC or Linux computer. IT server-class components are used throughout SoftMetal servers. SoftMetal Video Servers are available for order in 36 different configurations, 18 standard definition models and 18 multidefinition models.

Ross Video will also introduce Version 5 software for the OverDrive Integrated Live Production Control System. It offers many new features including integration with CG MOS-enabled devices, control of Vinten robotics and Wheatstone audio mixers and support for multiple networked OverDrive client systems.

Ross will also demonstrate its new DashBoard software application. It's OS-independent and allows users to control and monitor their operations within any network using intuitive GUI's (Graphical User Interfaces).

Ross Video will be in booth SU6010.
