Carbonite provides big switcher production power in a cost-effective, mid-size package.
Carbonite uses the absolute latest technology to pack unprecedented production power into a super compact frame. The Ross Multi-Definition Production Engine that lies at the heart of Carbonite offers the same pristine processing used on top of the line Ross switchers, but precisely tuned for this cost-effective platform. The superb performance of our past award winning switchers is available to you in this incredible mid-size package, at an unbeatable price.
The Carbonite feature a breadth of capabilities that make these switchers unique in their class. Ross dedicates a great deal of effort in ensuring that our products enable a significant level of operational control. From the use of large, back lit buttons and Panel Glow for increased operator accuracy, to the placement of frequently used buttons, Carbonite provides intuitive panel ergonomics and superior production efficiencies. You can rapidly execute a variety of wipe patterns and memory recalls in just a few pushes, and the implementation of a rapid, auto-follow menu system means that you do not need to memorize menu hierarchies in order to fine tune your actions. A simple turn of a knob will apply a border, adjust softness and activate multiplication and rotation to create your own unique look. No time or effort is wasted navigating through the panel to see what you want and get what you want. Colonel Tom Touring offers multiple packaging options for these systems with 3 different consoles to choose from based on your technical requirements as well as your available space.
Barco FSN Multi-format switcher
Barco’s FSN series is a high-resolution 3G enabled switcher that combines advanced multi-format production and presentation switching in one highly integrated unit. The FSN integrates input conversion, multi-viewing, digital video effects and output conversion into a single 6 RU chassis.

This 1M/E live switcher has a separate mainframe and control panel, and comes standard with 16 SDI inputs, four SDI outputs, and two DVI outputs. It also features a variety of standard effect functions, including luminance and chroma keying, two DSK channels, two P-in-P buses, and two DVE channels. Ideal for medium-scale, multi-camera, on-air transmission and recording for broadcast studios, OB vans and image production applications. Addition of the optional AV-HS04M7D 3D SDI Output Board also enables 3D compatibility for switching effects such as wipes and mixes. And it features a number of display functions for 3D camera assist use.
