Ross Video is introducing “revolutionary new production switcher’, the Carbonite Ultra 60 at the Las Vegas NAB show.

Ross says the Carbonite Ultra 60 allows media groups looking to undertake larger, more complex, and more demanding productions to do so “without having to spend a considerable amount of money on one of the largest switchers on the market.”

Additionally, the new modular design of Carbonite Ultra 60, combined with the fact that it’s based on a software-defined hardware platform, “makes upgrading from HD to UHD easier and even more affordable for customers.”

“When we launched the first edition of Carbonite at NAB 12 years ago, we introduced a new class of production switcher that went beyond the capabilities of many products twice its size and price,” said Nigel Spratling, Vice President of Production Switchers and Video Servers at Ross Video. “Since that time, we’ve continued to develop the range of Carbonite products to the point where Carbonite Ultra has become the most popular mid-sized production switcher on the market. With the announcement of Carbonite Ultra 60, we’ve taken another massive step forward in our production switcher offering with the biggest, fastest, and most powerful Carbonite to date.”

Les O’Reilly, Director of Product Management for Production Switchers, said, “We’ve been on an incredible journey with the development of the Carbonite series, and during this time, thousands of technical directors around the world have turned to Carbonite. With this latest development, we’re thrilled to be able to offer customers what they’ve been requesting from us – a larger Carbonite frame. Carbonite Ultra 60 is the result of direct feedback from our customers and allows them to continue to create compelling content for news, sports, corporate communication, education, esports, houses of worship, and more.”
