Ross Video Launches CrossOver Production Switchers At IBC2008

Ross Video announced the launch of the compact CrossOver series at IBC2008.
Four models of the new production switcher will be released. CrossOver targets mobile or space constrained professional production environments.
David Ross, CEO, said: "We are overjoyed about the CrossOver swtchers. They benefit from budget friendly pricing and yet still deliver lots of high end features and sophistication in a tough and compact package.
"While they will be of high interest to small studios, edit suites and operators of OB vans, they are also suitable for use as backup systems for significantly larger vision mixers.
"The solid construction means that they offer great durability in the toughest environments."
Other important applications for the CrossOver switchers include master control branding in television production and live mixing to on-set monitors and IMag screens such as those found in corporate, educational and worship settings.
Its separate control panel and production chassis architecture is ideal for easy and rapid deployment into professional production facilities.
CrossOver comes in 4 configurations. The CrossOver 6 supports 6 Multi-Definition inouts, 2 keyers and has 6 source selection buttons. The CrossOver 12 supports 12 MD inputs, 3 keyers and has 10 source selection buttons as well as a rugged positioner.
CrossOver 6 SD and CrossOver 12 SD offer similar connectivity to their respective peer devices, in cost reduced standard definition-only versions. Ross Video will also be offering an unprecedented MD upgrade migration programme for the SD models.
All models feature intuitive, easy to use interfaces; the superb patented UltraChrome chroma keyer; dual animation stores; 2 2D DVEs; 4 up/down converters; a tiny 2 RU chassis and 3 SDI, one down-converted analog and 3 AUX outputs.
David Ross said: "Tough professional grade quality and functionality. Budget sensitive. The CrossOver switchers fulfill a critical market need. The best part is that it's astounding that such a compact device can offer so much power at a reasonable price."
