IBC 2009: Ross Pumps In Octane

Canadian switcher, automation and infrastructure supplier Ross Video will
use IBC to introduce Vision Octane, a new line of 1-8 MLE (multi-level effects)
production switchers with a fully self-contained single 8-rack-unit (RU)
processing chassis.

Vision Octane provides more power from the same chassis
as the current Vision QMD-X series, Ross says. It is designed to accommodate
advanced applications including multi-screen, multi-destination, split-feed,
monitor-wall intensive and 3D productions. Existing QMD-X switchers can be
upgraded to the Octane product.

The new Octane switcher offers 35 full-screen HD animation
stores; 24 channels of 3D DVE (digital video effects) with warp; 96 inputs; 48
outputs, all assignable; 32 full keyers; 12 AuxKey mixer/keyers on the
auxiliary bus outputs; and 12 DVE key combiners. That equates to a total of 56
