Ottawa, Canada, July 2nd 2021 – While the recent ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) event held in Barcelona and the satellite ISE event in London may not have taken place on the same scale as a normal year, the two shows saw the welcome return of physical visitors and still featured a host of innovative new technology from the last twelve months. Following these events, we're delighted to announce that AV Technology and Sound & Video Contractor (both part of the Future Publishing Group) have recognized two important solutions from Ross with Awards.
The Graphite PPC (Portable Production Center) from Ross was launched last year and is already well on the way to becoming Ross Video's most decorated product. AV Technology has awarded it with a 'Best of Show' title for ISE 2021, bringing the total number of trophies for Graphite PPC to nine. Initially designed as a 'grab and go' solution for smaller productions or studios, the onset of the pandemic in 2020 caused national networks and syndicated productions to reach for the Graphite PPC because of its portability, powerful feature set and ease of use.
The Ultrix Carbonite, launched in May of this year, saw Ross combine the innovative Ultrix routing and AV processing solution with Carbonite – the world's most successful midsize production switcher family – to create a new hyper-converged production platform that consumes less power, takes up less space, and requires less cooling compared with the equivalent racks of equipment it can replace. AV Contractor has awarded Ultrix Carbonite a 'Best in Market' accolade, and sister publication Sound & Video Contractor has handed it a 'Best of Show' award for ISE 2021.
Nigel Spratling, Vice President of Production Switchers & Video Servers, is delighted that both solutions have been recognized during this important transition period. "Both of these solutions were launched during the pandemic. They were already in our roadmap plans and they meet the need for increased value and efficiency – existing industry trends that have only been amplified by the pandemic and the particular challenges it has posed. I'm really pleased to accept these three awards on behalf of the relevant product teams – they're very welcome icing that tops off the positive feedback we've had from our customers."
