Ross Videohas announced an agreement to acquire Bannister Lake Software (BL Soft).

BL Soft products add to Ross' XPression Graphics Solution Set, consolidating and automating workflows for various data feeds like branding, tickers, gaming and elections, connecting them to XPression for real-time rendering. BL Soft's portfolio also includes a suite of HTML5 graphics creation and publication products that drive graphics to cloud-based playout and production applications as well as websites, apps and digital signage systems.

BL Soft's flagship product, Chameleon, revolutionises the way real-time data is accessed and utilised. With a comprehensive range of sources, including news, sports, weather, elections, financial updates, closings, eSports, wagering data, promos, sponsorships, and more, Chameleon offers a single, all-in-one solution. Users can effortlessly construct stunning and dynamic tickers, L-Bars, snipes, web widgets, and full-frame graphics that showcase up-to-the-second data-driven content. Rendering can be into an HTML5 data stream or via XPression Graphics, a video stream, or both at the same time.

Bannister Lake Software has a 31-year history of building data-driven graphics applications and a reputation for solid technology and great customer support.

"We've known the Ross Team for a long time, watching the company grow and doing it the right way. We felt it was about time that we became an inside part of what's going on," said Georg Hentsch, President of Bannister Lake Software. "We’ve got some amazing technology that will really benefit from the global footprint that Ross has created."
