MTV3 Transitions To HD With Ross Vision

Finnish commercial television station MTV3 (Mainos-TV) chose Ross for their news production studio with the purchase of a Vision 3 QMD-X Multi-Definition Switcher.
Based in Helsinki, Finland MTV3 made the move to HD replacing their old production switcher with a Ross Vision. The logical design and new features made the transition easy for MTV3's operators and they were able to go on air on September 6, 2008. MTV3 will install a Ross OverDrive Automated Production System in early 2009.
Markku Ryoti, Head of TV-Technical Planning, Technical Operations, said: "Everyone in the broadcast industry is familiar with Ross products. This along with the modular design and feature set of the Vision switchers made our decision to go with Ross an easy one."
Trevor Bilcock, Regional Sales Manager, said: "Our local dealer Mediatrade has been working with MTV3 for a number of years on a variety of projects. Mediatrade provides innovative solutions to complex problems, which lead to MTV3's introduction to Ross Vision and OverDrive. Vision has offered MTV3 the reliability, flexibility and scalability needed to enter the next phase of their expansion."
Vision QMD/X provides 4 keys per ME and up to 4 MEs, available in both a small and large chassis. The small chassis, QMD, is a compact 3RU, offering four full 4-keyer MEs, 6 keys downstream and 48 Multi-Definition inputs. The large chassis, QMD-X, offers four full 4-keyer MEs, 6 keys downstream and 96 multi-definition inputs.
