Ross Video Drives IP Ecosystem with Acquisition of COVELOZ Technologies

Thursday, September 8th, 2016 [Amsterdam, the Netherlands] – Ross Video & COVELOZ Technologies jointly announced today the acquisition of COVELOZ by Ross Video. COVELOZ will continue to operate its business as usual, and now with the backing of a strong parent company.

coveloz_main_logo_colour_lneCOVELOZ is a technology company offering design services and firmware solutions to address the time-sensitive networking and processing of audio, video and control signals. It is a leader in the development of standards-based, programmable media networking solutions based on IEEE 1588 synchronization. Equipment vendors from various industries are either currently using, or plan to integrate COVELOZ solutions into their products to speed time-to-market and ensure compatibility.

In a continued effort to accelerate the transition of video workflow to an IP based infrastructure, COVELOZ will persist in its work with Altera, now a part of Intel, to bring studio video-over-IP applications to market. COVELOZ, as part of Ross Video, will continue to foster a technology ecosystem with Altera, enabling the rapid, cost-effective and broadly interoperable adoption of studio video-over-IP technologies across the world.

“The time is now for COVELOZ to scale to meet the needs of the rapidly evolving deterministic networking markets, starting with audio/video applications,” commented Nestor Amaya, President of COVELOZ. “The acquisition by Ross gives us the wherewithal to pursue this exciting future and make media networking technology accessible to all corners of our target markets. We will continue to work with Ross competitors providing our IP technology to them as well. Ross is known for working well with others with openGear as a shining example. Wider accessibility to companies within the industry who lack IP knowledge will accelerate adoption and drive efficiencies of scale.”

“COVELOZ has some great core technology and an amazing vision for the IP future. As we’ve been working with their team implementing technology on our new platforms, we’ve been impressed,” said David Ross. “We’re excited to have them as part of the Ross family of companies and look forward to COVELOZ continuing to focus on their media IP work.”

COVELOZ will continue to offer its products and engineering design services to the Broadcast, Pro-A/V, Communications and Industrial markets, just as it always has. Now with the solid backing of a strong parent company, customers can be assured that COVELOZ is here to stay, and better than ever.
