Ross Announces IP Gateway Enhancements & V2 of Gator Toolbox – The Signal Conversion Problem Solver!

Ottawa, Canada, May 12th 2020 – As part of the Ross Live | 2020 program, Ross is today pleased to announce the latest version of Gator Toolbox – the 4K UHD signal conversion problem solver.

Launched at NAB Show 2019, Gator Toolbox offers all-in-one UHD up/down/cross, HDR conversion, standards conversion and frame synchronization for UHD workflows over 12G-SDI, all in a modular openGear form factor. Gator Toolbox addresses your signal conversion needs in broadcast, production and live event workflows where low latency and quality UHD, HDR and CG are required. New for 2020, V2 is a free software update which sees the addition of SQD (quad-link gearbox in or out) and user presets to enable operators to quickly recall common configurations – extremely useful in situations where customers have very dynamic workflows. V2 also supports new hardware which includes discrete AES audio embedding/de-embedding and support for fiber, mirroring the increase in popularity of fiber-based systems. V2 of Gator Toolbox is scheduled to be released in June 2020.

The Ross Signal Processing team is also pleased to announce free software updates to both the Raptor and Newt IP gateway and conversion solutions. Version 3.1 of Raptor brings improved resilience to network and PTP failures, and new diagnostic features to help customers track and debug network issues quickly and easily. This new version also includes support for AMWA NMOS IS-04/IS-05. Version 3 of Newt will enable customers to monitor four 2110 video streams on one display in a quad-split format. Both new versions are available now.
