Egyptian OB vehicles add Ross switchers
Egyptian Radio & Television Union (ERTU) has invested in four Ross Synergy 3 SD digital production switchers. The switchers are part of ERTU s OB fleet upgrade. A party of three senior engineering personnel from ERTU visited Ross Video HQ to carry out factory acceptance of the switchers. There are four trucks in Cairo, Egypt that will be refurbished with the Synergy switchers. The trucks are used for Sports programming as well as additional live programming throughout Egypt. We conducted a thorough evaluation of all switchers available in the marketplace and chose Ross, said the Chief Director of Studio Projects, ERTU. Our trucks cover many live sports productions and we wanted to ensure we had reliable equipment at an effective price point. ERTU chooses technology wisely and Synergy will play an integral role as part of their OB fleet upgrade, said, Sharon Quigley, Ross Video Manager, International Sales – EAIME. Synergy is a great fit for OB Trucks, the switcher is extremely flexible and has excellent performance during live sports productions. The Synergy 3 SD is a great choice for large market newscasts, large mobile trucks, sports stadiums and production intense IMAG applications. Synergy SD offers a complete growth path to the Synergy Multi-Definition switchers. The rack frame has 24 serial digital inputs (expandable to 64), 20 serial digital outputs, 6 chroma keyers, 6 effects keyers, and 2 additional downstream keyers available. There are up to 6 channels of Squeeze & Tease WARP DVE loaded with effects. Synergy 3 SD is an advanced and flexible digital production switcher.
