Ross Video’s Carbonite Mosaic Multi-Screen Image Processor to be Highlighted at the 2018 IBC Show

Ross Video’s Carbonite Mosaic is an innovative new compositing tool built on the Carbonite Black Plus engine that can output a canvas size of over 20 million pixels.

With single frame latency, this processor delivers high-quality scaled video with 5 layers for video and graphics that complement the live action.

With broadcast studios and sports stadia increasingly using larger or unusually-sized displays, content creators also need a tool that can handle live video processing and scaling. Carbonite Mosaic has a fully-loaded video-image processing feature set: 20 million pixel maximum canvas size, 5 Layers per canvas, up to 10 independent canvases, 36 inputs and 25 outputs, input and output processing, internal media playback, 4 built-in MultiViewers for monitoring, and HDR HLG Ready.

“Carbonite Mosaic retains many of the Carbonite’s intuitive operational features for setting up and running a show; it’s a complete canvas video-image processor offered at an incredibly affordable price point. That’s the beauty of a software-defined system, built on a reliable hardware platform.”
— Nigel Spratling, Vice-President of Production Switchers at Ross,
