Ross Video Cuts Prices on openGear HD Distribution Amplifiers
Ross Video announced a breakthrough in the prices of all openGear high-definition distribution amplifiers (Das). All HD and 3G distribution amplifier prices have been reduced by an average of more than 50%. The top of the line 3G/HD/SD Reclocking DA is now $499, half the current market price. These prices are effective immediately.
“We are excited to establish a new benchmark in DA price/performance.” said David Ross, CEO, Ross Video, “The cost of DAs can add up quickly in an HD facility. No matter what your current terminal equipment standard, you have to take a look at Ross for distribution. Ross has always been known for value, and our prices for 3G/HD/SD are now at or below the level of standard definition from just a couple of years ago.
This makes it much more affordable for our customers to accelerate the transition to HD and future-proof to 3G at no extra charge,” he continued.
