Ross Video introduces SoftMetal video server

Ross Video launched its new line of SoftMetal video servers at NAB2007 designed to deliver an integrated production solution that complements the Ross Synergy digital production switchers and OverDrive production control system.

SoftMetal offers multidefinition capability with real-time resolution scaling, graphics workflow support, client/server architecture for distributed control, robust IT server class hardware and flexible, software-based codecs.

SoftMetal can scale every output on the fly, converting clips from SD to HD or HD to SD automatically as they play to air. This feature is appropriate for today’s productions that rely on a mix of SD and HD source material.

In a production setting, SoftMetal completes graphics workflows by accepting networked transfers of TARGA stills, TARGA animations and pre-compressed graphics clips with available SoftMetal codecs.
