German broadcast services provider MMG turns to Ross for OB capability

Novel Ultrix Acuity platform implemented


MCI proposed one of the latest Hyperconverged solutions from Ross to equip the OB van with production capabilities belying its modest size. With the emphasis on a 12G 4K UHD single link signal structure, MCI specified the latest Ultrix Acuity from Ross – a new platform that brings together the Acuity production switcher and the Ultrix routing and AV processing solution.

Ultrix Acuity 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 5RU chassis. In addition, Ultrix Acuity is also a software-defined platform, meaning that future features can be enabled via software license, without having to purchase additional hardware.
