For Immediate Release
Iroquois, ON, Canada – March 29, 2010 - Ross Video announces CleanSwitch, an option available in v2.5 or later software in the CrossOver Series of compact production switchers.
CleanSwitch adds the ability to cleanly and quietly switch video signals with embedded audio, passing the audio through with a V-fade or Crossfade. The CleanSwitch option adds a separate openGear card that is controlled by CrossOver to mix up to a full 16 embedded audio channels.
“CleanSwitch makes an excellent solution for program path switching in master control, coordination suites, live trucks and more,” said David Ross, CEO, Ross Video. “The audio mixing also handles transitions between stereo and 5.1 audio streams, an important consideration for many applications.”
