Ross Video Gets Fin Win For New Production Studio
Finnish Commercial Television Station MTV3 (Mainos-TV) has selected a Ross Vision 3 QMD-X multi-definition switcher for their news production studio. Based in Helsinki, Finland MTV3 made the move to HD replacing their old production switcher with a Ross Vision. The logical design and new features made the transition easy for MTV3’s operators and they were able to go on air September 6, 2008. MTV3 will install a Ross OverDrive Automated Production System in early 2009.
“Everyone in the broadcast industry is familiar with Ross products,” said Markku Ryöti, head of TV-Technical Planning, Technical Operations. “This along with the modular design and feature set of the Vision switchers made our decision to go with Ross an easy one.”
“Our local dealer Mediatrade has been working with MTV3 for a number of years on a variety of projects,” said Trevor Bilcock, regional sales manager. “Mediatrade provides innovative solutions to complex problems, which lead to MTV3’s introduction to Ross Vision and OverDrive. Vision has offered MTV3 the reliability, flexibility, and scalability needed to enter the next phase of their expansion.”
