Ross Video Update Ultrix

News Image
Innovative routing and AV processing platform from Ross Video, Ultrix, was first announced at NAB 2016. The 1RU and 2RU versions (Ultrix-FR1 and Ultrix-FR2) were subsequently joined by a 5RU version (Ultrix-FR5) in 2018. Since its launch, the Ultrix family has won numerous industry awards and, with its ability to collapse racks of traditional infrastructure equipment into a more compact and efficient form-factor, has redefined the market’s perception of what a routing platform can do.

Ultrix is a software-defined solution, which means that additional features can be added to the product via a simple software license. This ensures that customers do not have to make critical system design decisions in advance and are not constrained by changes in transport technology.

In 2019, Ross further enhanced the capabilities of the Ultrix-FR5 by launching Ultrix IP, an IP blade that makes all the processing power of Ultrix available to 2110 streams. Today, Ross Video is very pleased to announce brand-new versions of the Ultrix-FR1 and Ultrix-FR2 frames that will also support the Ultrix IP blade. This important development will allow customers to scale their IP deployments cost-effectively by using any of the Ultrix frame sizes. In addition, the new Ultrix-FR1 and Ultrix-FR2 frames feature the same omnicooling architecture found on the Ultrix-FR5, for even more efficient heat-dissipation and improved performance in cramped conditions or challenging production environments.

Commenting on the updated Ultrix variants, Todd Riggs, Marketing Product Manager for Connectivity, points to the key benefits that these new frames will bring to customers: "We were very pleased to launch Ultrix IP earlier this year, providing our customers with a high-performance solution for connectivity in the IP domain. With the launch of these two new style frames, we’re giving customers greater choice and even more cost-effective ways to begin building their IP and/or hybrid production facilities."
