Ross Video Unveils Carbonite Ultra 60

Bigger, faster, and more powerful, Carbonite Ultra 60 is a new class of production switcher offering more I/O than previously available.

Carbonite Ultra 60 allows media groups looking to undertake larger, more complex, and more demanding productions to do so without having to spend a considerable amount of money on one of the largest switchers on the market. Additionally, the new modular design of Carbonite Ultra 60, combined with the fact that it’s based on a software-defined hardware platform, makes upgrading from HD to UHD easier and even more affordable for customers.

Key Features of Carbonite Ultra 60

  • Carbonite Ultra 60 supports an I/O of up to 60x25 in HD or UHD. The modular 3RU frame can be configured as 36x15 and expanded should demand increase.
  • Although Ultra 60 leverages the latest hardware technology to provide incredible performance, it shares the DNA of Carbonite Ultra, including its entire feature set.
  • The Carbonite Ultra 60 platform goes beyond simple layering and transitions with onboard Frame Syncs, Format Converters, MultiViewers, and more.
  • From SD to UHD and beyond, Carbonite Ultra 60 supports most major formats and frame rates. Plus, HDR and WCG support are built in as well, making Carbonite Ultra 60 an ideal system with which to grow.
  • Audio mixing and processing capabilities are available with an easy-to-install license key.

The Carbonite Ultra 60 package features modular I/O boards, making it easier and less costly for customers to leverage the switcher’s incredible feature set without buying more I/O than necessary while supporting future growth. Additionally, it is the first Carbonite with an internal power supply for easier installation.

Carbonite Ultra 60 is an ideal solution for facilities that need the power, affordability, and feature set of Carbonite but require more inputs and outputs than previously available. Finally, Carbonite Ultra 60 provides the same I/O capacity, without compromise, in both HD and UHD.
