Gator-Toolbox includes a set of tools that adapt UHD and HD signals to broadcast production and live event workflows

Developed by Ross Video as a UHD signal conversion problem-solver, the Gator-Toolbox adapts ‘any-to-any’ HD, UHD and HDR signals in an openGear card with optional adaptive standards converter. Gator-Toolbox includes a set of tools that adapt UHD and HD signals to broadcast production and live event workflows where low latency and quality UHD, HDR and WCG are required. The integrated format converter implements a rapid scaling and deinterlacing technology. Featuring smooth frame-rate conversion with tracking audio resampling, Gator-Toolbox is also a standards converter that adapts foreign standards into the production. Navigation can be made between SDR, PQ, HLG and SLOG in any combination with support for both standard and wide (BT. 2020) colour gamut.

Ross has also unveiled its NWE-IP Nielsen Watermark Encoder for IP networks. The solution is built on the manufacturer’s latest release of the BACH Virtual SoundCard, a Linux-based SDK that enables audio applications, such as NWE-IP, running on a COTS Linux server to connect to AES67 and SMPTE ST 2110 audio senders and receivers using SAP, and Ravenna open control protocols supporting up to 64 audio channels and eight low-latency bidirectional streams.

In brief, Ross has announced several updates to its portfolio. V9.1 of the Acuity production switcher adds direct integration with the Ultritouch hardware panel, centralising router and switcher aux control into a single 2U touchscreen interface. Graphite V2.3 provides additional PC audio channels so that customers can use computer-generated audio sources like audio from a PowerPoint presentation or add a Dante or AES67 virtual sound card to get audio-over-IP into the system. Utrix 4.0 adds control enhancements to support the Ultricore BCS Broadcast Control System, Ultricore IP NMOS discovery, registration and connection management licence for Ultricore BCS and Ultritouch 4 touchscreen control panel, a larger version of the Ultritouch 2U facility monitoring and a control touchscreen panel that now includes a headphone jack, front-panel USB port for peripherals and optional VESA mount kit.
