Canada’s CHUM TV uses Ross Video technology

August 4, 2005

CHUM Television’s A-Channel in Barrie, Ontario, is using the OverDrive production control system and the Synergy digital production switcher from Ross Video for its live news programming.

A-Channel uses OverDrive for production control of news programming and live updates during the day. Using the Ross LiveLink MOS interface to the newsroom control system, OverDrive automatically cues and brings to air the resources for each shot in the rundown.

OverDrive provides touch-screen control over devices used in a production environment. The system integrates with the Ross Synergy SD and MD/X series of production switchers, leveraging their control interfaces over video servers, VTRs, DDRs, audio mixers, robotic cameras, routers, still stores and more.
