Ross Video Launches BlackStorm Video Servers

An affordable production player with file based workflow support has been unveiled as Ross Video announce the launch of their new line of BlackStorm Video Servers.
The BlackStorm 102P Playout Server is a 2 channel high definition 1 rack unit video player. It natively supports the popular Quicktime (.mov) file format and a selection of codecs. It provides an easy to use, user configurable and intuitive client/server interface fully integrated into the Ross DashBoard Control System. The 1RU chassis is designed to use off the shelf hardware and is built on Dell Server hardware.
BlackStorm is an excellent live production playback solution and supports file based workflows with popular editing systems and graphics packages such as Final Cut, Adobe Premier, Avid Media Composer and Adobe After Effects. BlackStorm supports production-oriented playlists with built-in transition effects, and it integrates well with Ross’ Production Switchers as well as 3rd party units and controllers.
"The BlackStorm product line is the next step in the evolution of video servers from Ross," said Todd Robinson, Marketing Product Manager, Video Servers, Ross Video.
"This is a whole new design using next generation software architecture and the latest IT server hardware - providing a compelling product offering at a very competitive price point."
