News Release

For Immediate Release

Iroquois, ON Canada – June 10, 2009 – PRO 1 Stage went live in the Latvian music project earlier this year with a Ross Video Vision 1 QMD Multi-Definition Production Switcher.

PRO 1 Stage required a compact, minimum delay professional switcher at an affordable price for their OB van. Vision was perfect for their requirements while offering the option of increasing the functionality of the switcher and adding more features in the future.

“The demand for HD production facilities is increasing throughout the region, and with this investment in Ross Video, we can offer our customers market-leading equipment that will meet whatever needs they might have,” said Andrejs Mefodovskis, Director of PRO 1 Stage. “The Ross Vision gives us unlimited flexibility and excellent quality in HD / SD production. Ross Video’s Vision switcher is the best choice for unlimited performance with a very reasonable investment.”

“PRO 1 Stage required a reliable switcher, and the ability to add features as needs arose and Ross was able to offer them a solution without compromising quality,” said Alan Webb, Regional Sales Manager, Eastern Europe, Ross Video. “Together, PRO 1 Stage, the Ross Video Distributor for Latvia, Tilts Integration Ltd and Ross Video found the rock solid switcher solution they required for their facility. I look forward to working with them again for any future broadcasting needs.”
