Unparalleled Switcher Interface

Tria Express supports multiple interface protocols, providing tight integration not only with Ross switchers—but also with a broad range of third-party switchers. Many switcher manufacturers have integrated control of the Tria Express production server from the switcher’s control panel to enable advanced features—such as clip trimming, baseband live recording and clip library review. This level of integration simplifies your live production workflows and reduces the possibility of operator errors.

RS-422 Interface / AMP protocol

When Tria Express channels are connected to a switcher via dedicated RS-422 interface or via AMP protocol over Ethernet, the system becomes even more productive. VKA clip playback can be combined with switcher transitions and effects, all controlled directly from the control surface of many switchers. With the most comprehensive interface and fastest response time available, you can rely upon Tria in the heat of your live productions.
