E3 Powers Paperlyte Films Event With Ross Video’s Carbonite Ultra
Ross Video production equipment, including the Carbonite Ultra production switcher and XPression graphics platform, powered multiple stages of last week’s E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) event for Paperlyte Films, production partner for major esports and gaming clients such as Twitch, Facebook Gaming and Ubisoft.
“We’ve had a very positive experience so far integrating the Carbonite Ultra production switcher into our production environments,” notes Bryce Richardson, Executive Producer at Paperlyte Films. “We often operate with limited space, setup time and highly technical shows and the Carbonite Ultra switcher helps us deliver on all fronts.”
Ross Talk is another powerful solution that has helped raise Paperlyte’s productions to the next level by automating graphics and effects that need to happen at the right time in order to maximize audience impact.
“We continue to unlock even more Ross power from the integration directly with XPression, allowing for some amazing live harmonization you cannot easily achieve with other switchers,” Richardson comments.
Paperlyte’s operators have already benefited from the Ross solutions that have been deployed. David Greene, Technical Director at Paperlyte, says Carbonite is his preferred production switcher because the Carbonite Ultra gives him the ability to consistently meet his clients’ and directors’ needs, even when changes are needed on air.
“As a TD, you never know when a client or director might have an idea on the fly for an animation or box look, and the ability to bring someone’s idea to life while still in show helps create the best experience,” says Greene. “I wouldn’t want to do these shows on any other switcher.”
