Ross Video to show HD Octane
Ross Video has expanded its Vision line of production switchers with the addition of the Vision Octane, a new series of 1 MLE to 8 MLE production switchers with a fully self-contained single 8RU processing chassis, to be shown at IBC 2009.
The Vision Octane’s AuxKey mixer/keyers also act as mini MLEs for applications such as multiscreen productions where individual screens require dedicated production power. It also accommodates multidestination, split feed, monitor wall intensive and 3D productions, allowing each feed to achieve full production value without stealing resources from the main production.
Vision Octane features increased production power within the same 8RU
CPU chassis found on the company’s current Vision QMD-X series. Vision Octane offers 35 full-screen HD animation stores, 24 channels of 3D DVE with warp, 96 inputs, 48 outputs (all assignable), 32 full keyers, 12 AuxKey mixer/keyers on the aux bus outputs, and 12 DVE key combiners, giving a total of 56 keyers in the system.
Existing Ross Vision QMD-X customers can upgrade to the new Vision Octane.
