The new Carbonite Black Solo, a surprise introduction at NAB and now shipping, is presented as a highly compact yet powerful production switcher with 9 inputs and 6 outputs. It’s at IBC where European audiences can get their first look.
Targeted at smaller productions, Ross Video's Black Solo features a full Carbonite tool set but in a smaller, more affordable package.
The mid-sized Carbonite Switcher series continues to expand adding the Carbonite Black Plus frame, which contains all of the features of the popular Carbonite Black engine, adding more monitoring capability, and extensive processing features to both inputs and outputs.
Another bonus for Carbonite is that XPression Live CG software is now included with every model. With the latest version of Carbonite software, feature additions include Multi-Panel operation that enables users to operate their Carbonite ME, MiniMEs or MultiScreen outputs from multiple control panels and Dashboard control points.
The Acuity large production switcher series is being shown with integrated IP 10Gb/s I/O capabilities. This solution provides a direct connection into the Evertz IP routing environment without requiring a top of the rack gateway.
The latest Acuity software version brings additional operational features including new DVE Warps, Lighting Engine, and support for the MultiProcessing Input card option which adds frame syncs, color correction, input multi-viewing and more to Acuity inputs. This version of software expands the capabilities of MultiFeed functionality with Split ME controls. Now it’s possible to set up an Acuity ME as two MEs with up to eight keyer assignments.
Acuity DoubleDown control panel models are a new premium option that doubles the number of key/aux bus assignment buttons for every ME row.
Also from Ross Video in Amsterdam is the latest software version of its Streamline MAM which introduces tighter workflow integration with Xpression clips for playback and automatic transcoding into the Xpression codec, as well as integration with OverDrive automated production control systems. The MAM also has many improvements for graphics asset management, including folder structures, implicit metadata profiles and support for Adobe XMP based metadata in assets.
