Gear End-Of-Life

Some of our older platforms, specifically the RossGear 7000/8000 modular series and the Analog Video router series, are quickly approaching end of life as we can no longer secure the necessary components to keep them in production. Effective July 1st, 2015, the following product families have been moved to End-of-Life status:

  • RossGear 8000-Series Terminal Gear
  • RossGear 7000-Series Terminal Gear
  • openGear 8310, 8320, and 8321 Frames
  • NK Analog Video Routers
