Monday July 14, 2014 [Iroquois, Ontario, Canada] – Today, Ross Video announced that India’s newly launched 24×7 news channel, 99% TV, had chosen to invest in Carbonite production switchers with built-in MultiViewers and other Ross infrastructure for its new news studios.
“We carefully examined all our options, but the Ross Video products blew the competition away with their superior performance, cost effectiveness and reliability,” said Mr. Kapil, 99% TV’s Chief Executive Officer. “The support system Ross has in place here in India is also very strong and I was impressed by their technical support, which is second to none.”
As well as using Carbonite production switchers, 99% TV is also using Ross Video’s MC1 master control system, DashBoard and openGear.
“We decided to go with a complete infrastructure from Ross in part because of the flexibility of DashBoard, which lets us create an unlimited number of custom panels to meet our specific needs. We can also do L-band and squeezeback,” added Mr. Kapil. “The MC1 is incredibly user-friendly and can also be used without a hardware panel which enables us to integrate it with our existing router. It also delivers exceptional value for money as well as an extended five-year warranty.”
99% TV is using its Ross Video infrastructure for all its on-air news programs, including discussions, debate shows and personal interviews. In the future, the station is also planning to produce game shows.
