Award-winning Ross Graphite all-in-one production vehicle on show


The new Graphite, an award-winning product introduced at NAB this year, will be on show on the Concilium stand (E17). The Ross Graphite is an all-inclusive system that combines superb big switcher performance with visually stunning 3D graphics, instant access clip servers and pristine audio clarity – with the reliability of separate system components.

The production switcher utilises real Carbonite hardware built into a dedicated hardware module in the platform. Carbonite packs major effects and keying power into two MEs. Each ME has four powerful keyers with luma, linear, chroma, and DVE key types as well as an additional fifth transition keyer for animated Media Wipes and DVE transitions. Each ME can access the two advanced Ultrachrome chroma keyers. Two advanced pattern generators per ME are available for wipes, pattern masks and colour washes. Each ME also provides a clean feed output.

Two configurable MultiViewers (up to 32 windows) are included in the Carbonite feature set. These clean, low latency MultiViewers have access to all external and internal sources. Source naming and tally assignment automatically follow window routing selections. Each MultiViewer has user selectable layouts with the individual choice of border, tally and source label display for each source.

XPression Graphite has a direct connection to Carbonite’s Media-Stores. Individual still graphics can be transferred and stored for inclusion in the production in addition to the live multi-layered graphics. It is also possible to use switcher media stores as a preview channel for the XPression Graphite application. The renowned Ross Xpression motion graphics system is used by top production studios, sports and news networks together and is supplied complete with Xpression fully featured clip server channels. With all of this great video power a great audio solution was needed so the RAVE audio engine, with a 28channel audio mixer, external embedded SDI audio from each external input, stereo audio from internal sources is also included and an optional analogue/digital audio breakout box is available for high quality live audio recording.

Graphite offers all this powerful production equipment in a compact 4RU chassis, but unlike traditional all-in-one systems – offers unprecedented performance and total reliability. Real Horsepower you just have to see!

Come see the Ross Graphite at Mediatech 2017 on the Concilium Technologies stand (E17).
