Ross integrates OverDrive v2.0 with Avid iNEWS

OverDrive enables touch-screen control over the devices used in a television production environment.

Ross Video is now providing tight integration between its OverDrive v2.0 production control system and the Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system.

OverDrive enables touch-screen control over the devices used in a television production environment. It’s designed to work 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.

The Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system provides news personnel with tools to create, organize and deliver news broadcasts from their desktop. It offers advanced machine control plus the ability to store CGs with scripts, automated ingest of newswires and stories, and seamless integration with Avid editing systems.

OverDrive v2.0 features a MOS interface to the iNEWS system through the Avid MOS gateway. The integration also features an OverDrive ActiveX plug-in that sits on the iNEWS desktop. This MOS interface enables production elements, such as switcher effects, DVE effects and robotic camera moves to be placed directly into the rundown.
