Ross merges Acuity and Ultrix

Building on its Acuity switcher and Ultrix routing and AV processing platform, Ross has also announced the release of its hyper-converged production platform called Ultrix Acuity. It takes routing, audio mixing, multiviewers, trays of frame syncs and audio embedders/de-embedders – all solutions that have traditionally filled multiple equipment racks – and compresses them all down to a single 5U chassis. Ultrix Acuity has been designed for environments where size really matters, such as OB vans and mobile units. Users can add 2U of rack-mounted redundant power and the result is a complete 7U system that can replace packages requiring multiple racks, complex cabling and control system integrations.

As with the current Ultrix solution, Ultrix Acuity is based on the manufacturer’s Software Defined Production philosophy. The Software Defined Production Engine (SDPE) provides base hardware that can grow via convenient and relatively inexpensive software licences. Ultrix Acuity’s SDPE backbone reportedly reduces the uncertainty around meeting future creative or technical requirements. Users can also transition from HD to UHD with a software licence and mix SDI and IP sources in the same frame transparently. Ultrix Acuity can become one node of a larger distributed routing environment, reducing the incremental cost of adding I/O and further production switchers.

Replacing the current Tria Express launched in 2016, Ross Video has also unveiled the Tria Express Duet production server. Housed in a similar 2U chassis and built on the same video hardware as its predecessor, Tria Express Duet expands the number of possible video I/O configurations up to 15 channels. Two software options are available with the hardware: the TRIA-XD-2-SW enables two symmetrical record/playout channels and the TRIA-XD-4-SW features these same two symmetrical record/playout channels with two additional playout-only channels. Tria Express Duet also features a built-in multiviewer which can be undocked and moved onto an extended desktop computer display. A two-channel Tria Express Duet can be upgraded in future to four channels (two record/playout with two playout only) via a software licence.
