Ross Video To Intro Fiber DA/Regenerator at NAB

At NAB 2010, Ross Video will introduce a Fiber DA/Regenerator to allow customers to extend their fiber link budgets.

The FSR-6605 Fiber DA/Regenerator re-launches the optical output at -7 dB, a viable solution for fiber infrastructures where losses may exceed the link budget. The FSR-6605 offers a fiber input with a regenerated fiber output and also performs an optical to electrical conversion offering reclocked SDI outputs, making it an ideal solution for increased power as well as signal monitoring in a fiber infrastructure.

“Our Fiber DA/Regenerator solution is ideal for systems where the Fiber link budget has been exceeded”, says Eric Goodmurphy, Gear Marketing Product Manager, Ross Video. “The additional optical to electrical conversion with SDI outputs further enhance this solution making it an excellent device to monitor signals in a fiber transmission system.”

Ross To Intro CWDM Optical Transmitters, Muxes, and Demuxes at NAB

At NAB, Ross Video will also roll out a wide range of CWDM optical transmitters, optical muxes and optical demuxes to allow customers to fully utilize available bandwidth on their existing fiber connections.

Eight dual CWDM transmitters for a total of 16 optical wavelengths, a four channel MUX/DMX with expansion port, an eight channel MUX/DMX, and an eight channel MUX/DMX with expansion will be introduced at NAB. The flexibility of these solutions allows end users to combine up to sixteen channels in groups of four onto a single fiber link.

“Our CWDM, coarse wave division multiplex allows customers to combine up to 16 channels of video onto a single fiber connection,” says Eric Goodmurphy, Gear Marketing Product Manager, Ross Video. “In situations where laying additional fiber is simply not an option, our CWDM solution allows users to fully take advantage of existing bandwidth.

Ross Intros XPression Live CG for the Ross CrossOver

Ross Video has announced XPression Live CG, a version of XPression Designer exclusive to the CrossOver series of production switchers.

XPression Live CG renders still graphics on a laptop or PC running Nvidia Graphics, sending the stills with alpha over a network directly into the CrossOver Media Store channels.

“Stills are typically selected, rendered, transferred and on-air in less than two seconds,” says David Ross, CEO, Ross Video. “XPression offers a user friendly playlist system that makes bringing the next still to air as easy as pressing a space bar.”

XPression Designer can be upgraded at any time to a full system that incorporates real time motion graphics playout over HD-SDI. It is fully compatible with all of the files and templates created with the stills package using CrossOver Media Store Integration. CrossOver software v2.5 or later is required for support of the RossLink connection and is available at a download for current CrossOver users.
