VITEC Signs as Latest Ross Video openGear® Partner

Ottawa, Canada, April 5th 2019 – Ross Video is pleased to announce that VITEC has joined as a partner to expand the use of the Emmy® award-winning openGear® signal processing platform. Created in 2006, openGear is the industry standard platform of choice for modular signal processing equipment. As the world’s first modular platform open to other manufacturers, openGear provides solutions derived from hundreds of individual cards from dozens of companies. The platform was awarded a technical Emmy® at the end of 2017.

“VITEC is now part of the openGear platform and is excited to be a member of this modular ecosystem” said Richard Bernard, Senior Product Manager. “The VITEC openGear IP decoder card is a perfect complement to our HEVC contribution solution where channel density and system reliability is paramount”.

Nestor Amaya, Vice President, Signal Processing Gear at Ross Video, is very pleased to welcome VITEC to the openGear family. “It is great to see this inaugural product from our newest partner VITEC which addresses a key application in compression and decompression. This is further proof that customers can rely on openGear as the industry platform of choice, with the best-in-class modules from the widest array of manufacturers, under our unified DashBoard control system. We congratulate VITEC on this new and innovative openGear product”.
