Communications Concepts Upgrades To Ross Vision Switcher

US-based Communications Concepts (CCI) has upgraded to a Ross Vision 3 Multi-Definition Production Switcher for their new HD/SD mobile truck.
The Florida company's mobile has been retrofitted to run in either HD or SD for small to medium live production events including new features, entertainment and sporting events.
The mobile also supports side-by-side work for additional stations or networks or multi-language feeds at large events.
Speaking at the firm's HQ in Cape Canaveral, Jim Lewis, President and General Manager, CCI, said: "We were faced with digital transition and there are only a few manufacturers and suppliers that could offer powerful, yet affordable, solutions, while also offering free software upgrades.
"The Ross Vision 3 QMD met our needs accepting up to 48 HD or SD inputs and providing rich macro, DVE and animation feature sets. Vision's flexibility made Ross the perfect choice."
The Vision 3 at CCI is configured with 7 paths of Up/Down conversion as well as SD and HD output to meet the needs of any production.
David Ross, CEO of Ross Video, said: "We're happy that CCI looked to Ross for their Switcher needs. They have also organised an open training session to the freelance community in Florida, which was a big success. The success at CCI really underscores the continued growth of Ross Vision switchers in the mobile truck marketplace."
