NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Switching The ATP World Tour Finals took place recently at London’s O2 arena providing a thrilling finale to the men’s 2014 tennis season. As part of this year’s event, Ross Video was invited to partner with Gearhouse Broadcast, one of Europe’s leading system integration companies, to provide live 4k productions throughout the tournament. With Hitachi already on-board providing four 4k cameras, Gearhouse Broadcast needed a production switcher for the week-long event, and Ross Video’s latest Acuity switcher represented the perfect doubles partner. Launched earlier this year at NAB, the Acuity is Ross Video’s flagship switcher and offers a compelling blend of performance, flexibility and aesthetic design. Capable of switching SD, HD, 3G and 4k content, the Acuity looks set to become one of Ross Video’s most successful products and has consistently proven itself during a series of 4k technology demonstrations this year. Simon Brooke has been working with Gearhouse Broadcast and the Acuity switcher all week and he notes “What can I say about the Acuity? Flexible, powerful and it looks great too!” Pictured – Simon Brooke switching a live match with the Acuity www.rossvideo.com 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 96 DECEMBER 2014 EditShare has released version 3.2 of Flow, the company’s media asset management platform.
