Ross Expands openGear Portfolio

Ross Video continued the expansion of its openGear product portfolio at IBC with a new line of 3G Distribution Amplifiers (DAs), Gigabit Ethernet over Fiber Transceivers as well as new openGear 3G Audio Multiplexing and Demultiplexing (Mux/Demux) solutions starting at only $995.00.

RossRoss’ new line of 3G DAs include single, dual, and quad channel distribution amplifiers that offer the flexibility of high density HD-BNC or standard BNC rear modules, non-inverting output support for DVB-ASI signals and fail over protection utilizing secondary inputs.

The new Fiber Ethernet transceiver offers a great way to extend a data network’s range over Fiber.  There are single, dual and triple Ethernet / Fiber channels available on a single card with guaranteed GigE bandwidth. The ports can be configured as a generic switch (any port to any port), or can be set up for 1:1 trunking with options for auto fail-over.

Ross’ 3G Audio Mux/Demux solutions have been reduced to only $995 on the digital versions. Also, an 8 channel AES balanced 110Ω variant has been added to the lineup.

“The scope of Ross’ openGear product range continues to expand with new products added every month or two,” explains Eric Goodmurphy, Director of Infrastructure Business, Ross Video. “The breadth of solutions available from both Ross and our openGear partners is staggering, propelling the growth of the world’s only open terminal equipment platform.”
