Ross Video has announced that it will launch a new version of the routing and signal processing platform Ultrix at CABSAT 2018 (Stand ZB5-A40).

Ultrix-FR5 delivers a full-featured routing platform with integrated MultiViewers and FrameSyncs in a compact 5RU chassis. The software-defined nature of Ultrix, with the ability to change and update functionality via software license means Ultrix customers only buy what they need, when they need it.

Utilising 12G chipsets throughout the entire router, it enables users to switch anything from 270 Mb/s, to single link 12G UHD signals all within the same chassis, providing a path for customers to migrate all, or part, of their facilities to UHD production. Its internal architecture uses a new, FPGA based design throughout, allowing customers to add software defined processing capabilities such as MultiViewers, FrameSyncs and others by ordering software licenses. No special hardware is required.

Todd Riggs, Business Development Manager, Infrastructure, Ross Video, said: "Broadcasters are extremely conscious of spend in the current climate and want reassurance that any investment in products now will not be compromised by changes in technology. Ultrix provides that security – broadcasters can simply turn on additional features and upgrade as required."
