Ross introduces Software Defined Production

Ross Video hopes to provide broadcasters with a progressive growth path to IP focussing on transport-agnostic solutions with the release of its Software Defined Production (SDP) Ecosystem. The new family of products allows broadcasters to choose the method of transport that is most appropriate for their project and offers myriad adaptability and scalability options. The SDP setup seeks to facilitate workflows with fewer pieces of equipment by offering multipurpose tools that can be used flexibly to meet particular needs on-demand, rather than single-function.

The family comprises the Newt point-of-use IP signal converters and the Raptor Edge openGear module, high-density IP gateway, both of which are AIMS-compliant, as well as the Gator UHD-capable signal processing modules, the Ultrix processing platform, the XPression family of real-time motion graphics systems and the DashBoard control and monitoring ecosystem. In addition, the Bach OEM module and Swift SMPTE ST 2110 system-on-chip from Coveloz are included in the SDP family, as are Ross’ new AcuityIP and CarboniteIP production switchers.

AcuityIP and CarboniteIP are new native IP versions of the Acuity and mid-sized Carbonite Black production switchers. With the ability to interface with standards-based SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 infrastructures, they are able to connect to COTS IP solutions via standard 10GbE SFP+ interfaces with integrated discovery and registration of streams using open control protocols including NMOS, EmBER+ and DashBoard. An optional aggregation switch connects 40GbE or 100GbE interfaces to a core or spine switch.

‘AcuityIP and CarboniteIP retain all the I/O processing features of their SDI family members,’ noted Nigel Spratling, director of production switchers and video servers at Ross Video. ‘Users are able to mix and match IP and SDI interfaces, so each switcher may be used to connect directly to legacy SDI equipment as required, making them ideal for hybrid installations.’
