“We are thrilled that CTV and Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium will use Vision and SoftMetal at the Vancouver Olympics,” said Ross CEO David Ross. “It’s an honor to have our products participate in this world wide event. I can’t wait to sit back on thecouch at home and watch the coverage."
