Ross Video to supply video switchers for new Meridian studios

Ross Video and Gee Broadcast Systems - the UK distributor for Ross – have announced a major order for three Ross Synergy 3 vision mixers, as part of the fitting out of the relocated Meridian TV studios at Whiteley, Southampton.
The Synergy 3 is part of a comprehensive and popular family of digital, analogue and multi-definition switchers designed to meet all broadcast production requirements.
The new studios will primarily be a news and regional programme production centre for ITV in the south of England. Ross Video made it onto a shortlist of three manufacturers invited to supply vision mixers for a 'shootout' at Meridian TV.
Paul Stevenson, ITV News Group Controller of Projects, said: "We went through all the major players and put together a shortlist based on analysis of the various products' functionality, ahead of the shootout. We found Ross' progressive approach very encouraging. In fact, we really liked Ross' commitment and what we heard about their post-sales support."
The various switchers were brought to the main Meridian studio so that all appropriate staff could try and compare them.
Stevenson continued: "Our selection criteria were: usability, the range of features offered versus cost, operator friendliness and ergonomics. Taking all these factors into account, we were confident that the Ross Synergy 3 switchers would meet our needs very well, so we placed an initial order for three systems, with an option on more once the first three are established."
Jeff Moore, Ross Video Vice President Marketing & Sales, said: "We are delighted that ITV has made such a strong commitment to Ross by choosing our Synergy 3 vision mixers for all the main production studios in their new Meridian TV studios at Whitely.
"Our thanks to ITV for a thorough evaluation process. We look forward to delivering a superior customer experience and exceeding Meridian's expectations."
The switchers will be supplied and supported locally by Gee Broadcast Systems, which has a long-standing relationship with Meridian.
