Rhode Island’s Capitol Television Revamps Production Facility with Ross Video Gear
Rhode Island’s Capitol Television, the production department of the Rhode Island General Assembly, has selected Ross Video to provide a comprehensive high definition video production solution. The solution provided by Ross includes: CamBot Robotic Camera Systems, NK Series Routing Systems, openGear Terminal Equipment, Carbonite Production Switchers, BlackStorm Video Servers, XPression Motion Graphics Systems and Ross’ new Legislative Control System (LCS).
The Ross LCS provides a touch screen user interface laid out for the unique needs of producing video from a legislative assembly. It can be tailored to the specific configuration of any legislature. Production control is unified into a simple touch screen interface that allows a clean, attractive, network quality production to be created by a single operator. By integrating with the microphone or delegate system the best camera angle and relevant graphical overlay are automatically selected and placed on the Preset. The operator can then trim the camera, if desired, and Take the new angle and graphics.
“As soon as I saw the user interface I immediately appreciated its power and simplicity. It was one of the decisive factors in choosing a total Ross solution,” says Derek Hayes, General Manager, Capitol Television. “Ross technology is known to be top notch and of course, Ross has a great reputation for service and support.”
“DashBoard 6.0, with the rapid customization capabilities of its PanelBuilder feature, together with the fact that all Ross equipment used here “speaks DashBoard” is what enabled us to create this compelling, robust solution. Expect to see more like this from Ross,” says John Naylor, DashBoard Marketing Product Manger, Ross Video.
