(Iroquois, Ontario--September 13, 2013) Ross Video adds yet another product to its expanding Carbonite switcher lineup. Called Carbonite 2S, this new 2 ME switcher includes all of the powerful standard features of the Carbonite family.
2S is a new 2 ME control panel based on its highly successful bigger brother, the Carbonite 2X but with 24 source select buttons instead of 32.
“The success of Carbonite has been simply astonishing! It has surpassed all of our expectations, and we have now shipped almost 2000 systems since it’s introduction,” stated Nigel Spratling, Switcher Business Development Manager, Ross Video
. “At Ross we listen carefully to our customers to help make our products better, and from their feedback we designed the Carbonite
2S to better suit environments with space limitations as well as offer all of the power of a 2X Carbonite
at a great price point.”
Like the Carbonite
2X, the 2S has individual ME Effects Memory keypads that many operators have expressed a preference for due to a familiar workflow for high paced sports production. The new 2S panel can be configured with any Carbonite
processing engine, including the new Carbonite
eXtreme. It also comes with Ross’ ViewControl touchscreen production controller and LiveAssist Graphical User Interfaces. When purchased as a Studio System Package with Ross’ BlackStorm
Playout Server and XPression
Motion Graphics System, it becomes a complete production powerhouse.
Like all Ross products, the new Carbonite
2S is fully integrated with their free DashBoard
PanelBuilder application, allowing operators to easily build their own custom control interfaces for the entire production system.
2S is now available for shipping.
