THE SOFTWARE MEDIA PROCESSING PLATFORM

softGear™ provides media organizations the flexibility to adapt to changing programming needs through media processing microservices on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and in the Cloud. This software media processing platform offers best-of-breed processing from Ross and third-party platforms and is easily configured and managed through a common DashBoard interface.

MICROSERVICES ARCHITECTURE

Modern microservices technology encapsulates each processing function into a portable container. These containers can easily be deployed to on-premise appliances or cloud infrastructures. This allows easy scaling, migration, and redundancy, giving you the ultimate in flexibility and reliability.

BEST OF BREED PROCESSING

Empowered by both Ross and third-party processing microservices, including Nielsen® audio watermark encoding, Dolby® audio and Orban® radio, softGear allows you to benefit from world-class signal processing solutions.

CENTRALIZED MANAGEMENT

softGear brings the power of flexibility and scalability through microservices to the broadcast industry. By providing a familiar DashBoard interface, softGear solutions sit side-by-side in a familiar and easy-to-use unified control environment.

RAPID EVOLUTION

As a software-defined processing architecture, softGear allows for rapid development of new media processing solutions. This makes softGear the ideal platform to evolve to meet your growing needs in a fast-changing broadcast world.

HIGH-DENSITY MEDIA PROCESSING

Well-suited to consolidated, centralized broadcast facilities, softGear enables more media processing signal chains in a smaller footprint. This allows you to produce more revenue-generating programming in less rack space.

ON-PREMISE WORKFLOW APPLIANCES

Not ready for the Cloud? softGear is available with pre-configured workflows on dedicated hardware, making it easy to deploy and configure to solve your immediate workflow challenges today. These media processing workflows can be later migrated to the Cloud, giving you the best choice of Cloud and on-premise deployment.

Living Live Community!

The platform offers a place for live production professionals to come together to share their experiences, solve problems, find answers to questions and discuss best practices.
