CBS Atlanta Completes HD Upgrade With Ross
April 9, 2009
CBS Atlanta selected Ross’ Vision 4 QMD-X Multi-Definition Production Switcher and SoftMetal Video Server for their recent HD upgrade.
CBS Atlanta is a Meredith Corp. owned television station located in Atlanta. Ross was chosen for Vision’s feature set and SoftMetal’s tight integration with the switcher. CBS Atlanta is broadcasting local HD programming daily with Ross since January 2009.
“Vision’s powerful features, ease of use, and ongoing free software and phone support were major factors in our decision to go with Ross,” said Steve Flanagan, director of broadcast operations and engineering, CBS Atlanta. “Another advantage was SoftMetal and its ability to offer on the fly flexible channel configurations and software CODECS. We are quite pleased with the performance of Vision and SoftMetal, and the overall Ross support has definitely helped us to achieve our goal to broadcast high-quality newscasts in HD.”
