Production Switchers Carbonite Black Applications


Tens of thousands of users push Ross switchers hard in a wide variety of applications on a daily basis. Over the years, our engineers have incorporated feedback from our diverse group of users, resulting in a capable, comprehensive and reliable feature set. Whatever your creation, you know Carbonite will give you the tools to execute a beautiful, crisp, clean production.

Broadcast Mobile

Broadcast Mobile Application
Carbonite makes a great mobile truck / OB van production switcher. The combination of production power and compact control panel and tiny rack frame are ideal for mobile applications. Carbonite offers the feature set required to produce high resolution broadcasts. Carbonite’s fluid user ergonomics and convenient features will make your programming come alive.


Small Control Rooms

Space Limited Control Room Application
Ross Production Switchers are widely deployed in broadcast environments. While every broadcast producer wishes to enjoy the luxury of large facilities for their productions, sometimes space and budget constraints interfere. Without sacrificing functionality or production quality, Carbonite fits into even the most space constricted control-rooms. The separate compact production engine housed in the equipment room keeps control-room noise and cabling to a minimum. Carbonite offers the production power to create a variety of clean, great looking shows.


Edit Suites

Edit Suites Application
The need for a compact and simple solution for linear editing remains equally relevant with the continuing migration to higher resolution productions. By supporting industry standard editing interfaces, Carbonite offers the right balance between powerful functionality and reasonable cost.


Auxiliary Productions

Back-up to Primary Productions Switcher Application
As a backup to, or split feed for a larger primary production switcher, the dual redundant power option and multi-definition I/O capacity of Carbonite combined with its budget sensitive pricing, make it the ideal solution for protecting or augmenting your mission critical productions. Besides being used as a live back-up switcher, Carbonite can increase the capacity of your primary system by feeding it ready-to-air pre-processed video.


House of Worship

House of Worship / Church Application
Houses of Worship have special requirements for their productions. They must be powerful, easy to use and handle multi-screen and multi-feed production. Another critical element for any live IMAG production is the absence of play-back delay. Carbonite features a simple user interface ideally suited for live productions as well as processes crisp 10 bit video in real-time with no visible lag.



Sport Venues Application
Not every facility has the display requirements of an Olympic stadium but that doesn’t mean that you should compromise on quality. The budget sensitive Carbonite features up to 3 powerful keyers and offers 4 independent multi-definition outputs plus an assignable analog output giving you the flexibility to offer world class presentations without an Olympic sized budget.


Live Entertainment

Live Entertainment Applications
Gives your shows extra punch and deliver effects to multiple screens. Carbonite’s convenient rapid operation featuring single touch wipe patterns, single touch 2D DVE effects and simple memory recalls allows you to create a compelling show in which you never miss a beat. Then take the show on the road thanks to Carbonite’s low weight and compact size.


Corporate Production

Corporate Production Application
For cost effective productions, Carbonite delivers proven results. Maintain superb production values combined with minimal video delay for a tight match to live performances. With 4 independent multi-definition outputs, 10 quickly accessible memory recalls and up to 3 keyers, Carbonite offers lots of power in a small package. All of this is controlled from Carbonite’s easy to use control panels equipped with the ability to perform full previews on all outputs.


Legislative Control Systems

Flight Cases Applications
Carbonite is a key component in the Ross Legislative Control System, which combines Ross camera robotics, XPression motion graphics and video switching, all controlled via the DashBoard LCS control and monitoring application.



Education Application
For campus television channels, distance learning, IMAG presentations or personnel training, Ross production switchers have always been popular with educators. The ease of use allows students to quickly grasp basic switcher concepts while the industry standard, next transition style control means that training on a Ross switcher makes it operate even competitive models. Ross offers a unique program “Ross University” allowing educators to provide training and certification to their students on Ross production equipment. This certification is a great asset on a student’s resume, and helps to secure that important first industry job out of school.


Master Control Cut-in

Master Control Cut-in Application
When you need to frequently break into regular programming with news, sports or weather updates without burdening primary production facilities and staff, the big switcher features and superb UltraChrome™ chroma key makes Carbonite the ideal cost effective solution.


Multi-Platform Production

Webcasting / Podcasting / Netcasting Applications
Media organizations need serious tools to pull their productions together quickly with a high quality look and feel across all types of platforms. Being able to produce live hits from a studio complete with graphics and effects can save hours of precious time in editing for content being pushed out on Internet and mobile platforms. No matter what the final destination, you’ll appreciate the added value that Carbonite can provide.
