NVerzion Partners With Ross Video and 360 Systems to Offer Integrated Automation, Master Control/Routing, Video Server, and Graphics Solution


SALT LAKE CITY -- March 28, 2013 -- NVerzion, a leading provider of cutting-edge tools for digital broadcasting and television station automation, today announced that it has teamed up with Ross Video and 360 Systems to offer a fully integrated automation, master control/routing, video server, and graphics package at the 2013 NAB Show. Designed to maximize workflow efficiencies and guarantee cost-savings for broadcasters, the powerful solution can be easily integrated into any existing file-based workflow for seamless operation.
Two packages are currently available. The first includes NVerzion's Component Level Automation System Solutions (CLASS), 360 Systems' MAXX-500 digital video server, and Ross Video's MC1 master control and XPression graphics systems. The second package features CLASS as a cuts-only signal processing solution with 360 Systems' MAXX-500 server and Ross Video's NK Series router and XPression graphics. A comprehensive customer-support plan from the companies ensures the continuity of a station's on-air presentation.
"By partnering with Ross Video and 360 Systems, we're able to provide broadcasters with a one-stop shop for cutting-edge automation, master control/routing, video server, and graphics systems," said Reed Haslam, director of sales and marketing at NVerzion. "This entry-level package is being offered as a single-channel, SD solution with available add-ons to accommodate unlimited features and upgrades. Relying on CLASS, the new package optimizes a station's terrestrial and file-based operation, offering exceptional failure protection and redundancy that is critical to staying on the air."
An alternative to station-in-a-box solutions, NVerzion's CLASS is a flexible, scalable automated platform that offers total redundancy and guaranteed integration with a wide range of third-party technologies, including master control/routing, video server, and graphics systems. Relying on software components to control and integrate legacy hardware and software systems into a unified platform, CLASS ensures continuous and reliable operation.
Based on individual station requirements, broadcasters can choose between deploying Ross Video's MC1 -- a simple, cost-effective master control solution that features complete program path protection via input bypass relays -- or the company's NK Series of routing solutions, which are available in a wide variety of matrix sizes and types for increased flexibility. The package also includes Ross Video's XPression real-time motion graphics system for high-end 3D graphics and animation creation.
The video server component of the package features 360 Systems' MAXX-500, a high-performance,versatile system that can operate as a standard-definition video recorder, three-channel playout server, and graphics store.
NVerzion is offering a special, discounted price on the packages during the month of April. More information on NVerzion and its products is available at www.nverzion.com.
