Sencore Expands openGear Terminal Equipment Platform

Iroquois, ON, Canada - March 14, 2008 - Ross Video and Sencore officially announced their partnership to expand the openGear terminal equipment platform. Sencore is an industry leader in test and measurement equipment, as well as receiver decoders and signal source solutions.They will join other terminal equipment vendors in supporting the award winning platform.

The openGear terminal equipment platform is based on an open-architecture, 2RU modular frame designed to accommodate up to 10 cards. A wide variety of cards are available from terminal equipment vendors supporting the openGear platform, allowing facilities the freedom and flexibility to choose the best technology for their particular applications. Customers are no longer locked into one manufacturer‘s frame standard and modules for their terminal equipment solutions. openGear also provides the platform with a control system that allows quick and easy monitoring and control of frames and modules on the network.

“Sencore is very excited to be contributing to the openGear platform,” said Michael Harris, Product Manager “We believe that receiver decoder products are a natural extension to the rest of the options offered for the platform. For the customer this is a great benefit because the overall portfolio of solutions presents a compelling alternative to the proprietary chassis and cards that are all too common within the marketplace. We look forward to working with Ross and the rest of the openGear partners to provide a wide range of technology solutions to customers all over the world.”

“We are pleased to welcome Sencore into the openGear partnership,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Marketing Product Manager, RossGear “openGear continues to expand offering customers the flexibility to pick the best module for their application.”
