Ross Celebrate OverDrive Production Control System Release

Ross Video has enhanced their OverDrive Automated Production Control System with the release of version 12 software during IBC 2012.
Version 12 software introduces SideBox and SideSlide - two new control surfaces which give the operator unprecedented control of all production elements.
"SideBox allows mapping of any "button press" or automation system function to a 28 button shot box while SideSlide provides tactile control of audio to provide best-in-class control among APC systems," said Scott Bowditch, Marketing Product Manager for OverDrive, Ross Video. "These control surfaces can be placed at the user’s fingertips, regardless of the location of the OverDrive client screens or production switcher panel. With these two additions, OverDrive users can maximize flexibility of staffing and space."
Also new for version 12 is OverDrive Ultimate Redundancy. This will enable the use of fully redundant switchers to provide a system with no single points of failure. Along with video server sync-roll, redundant servers and multiple clients, OverDrive offers a level of redundancy that fits any customer’s needs, regardless of risk tolerance level or budget.
Ross Video will be demonstrating version 12.01 at IBC operating with the Annova Systems OpenMedia Newsroom Control System. Scheduled to release after IBC, the new NRCS integration illustrates Ross’ commitment to continuous improvement and development of APC. Integration with Annova will make the use of OverDrive advantageous for additional news outlets around the world.
Ross Video designs, manufactures and supports a wide range of innovative products for use in video production applications. Ross’ award winning product line includes Vision, Vision Octane, CrossOver and Carbonite Video Production Switchers; openGear, RossGear and GearLite Terminal Equipment; SoftMetal Video Servers; OverDrive Production Control Systems; XPression Character Generators; NK Series Routing Systems and Ross Robotics. Ross products are installed in over 100 countries around the world, where they are used daily by top broadcasters, production companies, sports stadiums, government agencies and houses of worship.
