Ross Video Launches Touchscreen Systems Control and Monitoring Panel for Customizable Operation of Broadcast Hardware at IBC 2018

Ottawa, Canada, September 14th 2018 - Ross Video is pleased to announce the launch of Ultritouch, a customizable system-wide hardware control and monitoring panel designed to help operators easily control and move between products and applications while maintaining the speed and fidelity of the equipment they are controlling.

Ultritouch is a powerful rack-mountable touchscreen panel combining traditional functionality while adapting the workflows and customization for operators fluent with smartphones. Ultritouch adds a powerful new control option to Ross Video’s award-winning Ultrix connectivity platforms. In addition, due to its integration with Ross Video’s network and control system DashBoard, Ultritouch controls a host of other Ross Video equipment.

Key benefits include:

· Smart touch functionality providing traditional functionality with modern workflows

· System wide control across almost the entire Ross Video portfolio from a single hardware-based panel

· Open control with DashBoard provides full customization based on user needs

· Exclusive approach to common and next-generation workflows through a fully integrated touch UI with multidevice navigation, and button mapping - meaning less training, quicker setup and ease of use for operations staff

Todd Riggs, Ross Video's Marketing Product Manager Infrastructure notes: “We wanted to merge traditional operations with modern workflows and user experience. Ultritouch is the first of its kind to truly address this challenge and introduces fast, simple and intuitive control capabilities to deliver smooth operation of every product within the Ross Video Product portfolio. We anticipate the primary markets to be Broadcast, Cable, OB, Production and House of Worship markets and are excited to introduce this innovative tool at IBC.”

Ross Video will be on stand 11.C10 throughout IBC.
