The newly redeveloped Riverside Studios in Hammersmith is the first customer of Ross Video’s Ultrix-FR5 routing/AV processing platform that was launched last week at the CABSAT Expo in Dubai.

Ultrix is a routing and signal processing platform for Studios, OB Vans, and Flypacks.

Duncan Stewart, Technical Director at Riverside, said:  “We wanted to go with 12G for the new facility because we regularly use freelancers in the UK and the talent base is obviously very comfortable with SDI. 12G is the logical way for us to handle signal routing for UHD.

Our key priorities included MultiViewers, audio processing and clean switching, so the Ultrix looked impressively specified, but we clearly needed something larger than the existing 1 and 2RU versions of the product. It was therefore very exciting to meet with the team at Ross and discover that the 144 version was next on the roadmap and would fit our timescales for the new facility.

Riverside will be working with ES Broadcast, Ross Video’s Platinum Partner in the UK, to deliver the project; the first studio of two will be opening soon, with the second going live in 2019.
