Ross was honored for their Open Modular Platform for Broadcast and Production Distribution Conversion Equipment, the industry standard platform that Ross markets as the openGear. openGear was first created 10 years ago, as the industry’s only open modular platform and now provides a broad ecosystem of plug and play solutions from a wide range of manufacturers.
“The Ross Video code of ethics states that we will always act in our customer’s best interest as well as cooperate and help other friendly companies’. This has always guided us from the original concept of an open platform, to the ongoing success of over 60 contributing openGear partners with many tens of thousands of frames installed around the world,” explained David Ross, CEO for Ross Video. “We are greatly honored to receive this industry recognition at the highest level, with a Technology & Engineering Technical Emmy that supports our innovating thinking and contributions to the industry.”
