CARBONITE BLACK SOLO COMPACT PRODUCTION SWITCHER
Today’s content creators are expected to deliver increasingly engaging content to their audiences, while keeping costs low. Compact and affordable, the Carbonite Black Solo 1ME production switcher is built with the tools to create a top-notch show, wherever you take it.
SMALL FOOTPRINT, BIG FEATURE SET
Carbonite Black Solo provides the compact form and affordability of a small switcher, while offering the big switcher feature-set of the Carbonite Black series.
GRAPHICS SOFTWARE INCLUDED
XPression LiveCG complements your show with high quality still graphics. Graphics are fed directly into the switcher media channels over Ethernet for a truly simple workflow.
ELIMINATE ADDITIONAL PURCHASES
If your productions are on the go, at different facilities and events, you want to make it easy to plug-in and get the show rolling. Carbonite Black Solo is built with internal video processing and MultiViewer resources, so no external gear is required.
FLEXIBLE ME RESOURCES
Need a unique output for an on-screen monitor? Want to do a multi-screen projection on-stage? Carbonite Black Solo’s unique MiniMEs give you the resources to do this – without touching the main ME bus.
Smaller switchers generally feature base-level custom controls and memories, but not Carbonite Black Solo. This switcher features fully-customizable macros and a memory system with unique smart recall and effect recall functionality.
In addition to a refined control panel, Solo is part of the Ross DashBoard Control ecosystem. This network control software allows total control of all switcher functions and makes it easy to create a purpose-built UI for your specific production environment.

Powerful Main ME
Carbonite Black Solo's main ME has 4 powerful keyers with luma, linear, Chroma and DVE key types - as well as an additional 5th hidden keyer for animated Media Wipe and DVE transitions. Advanced pattern generators are available for wipes, pattern masks and color washes. The ME also provides a clean feed output.
2 Built-In MiniMEs
The 2 MiniME modules do not reside in a fixed position in the signal flow, they float and can be used anywhere in the signal path. These are great for additional dissolves and key layers. MiniMES are completely independent of Solo’s single ME and contain their own key/mix resources, making them great for unique outputs, on-set monitors, and multi-screen processors.
Included with Carbonite Black Solo, is XPression LiveCG software. Create great-looking still graphics from a network connected laptop for use in your productions.
In addition to still graphics, pre-rendered animations can be transferred via FTP into the Carbonite MediaStores for use on-air.
Memories & Macros
Carbonite Black Solo allows for the creation of up to 256 Custom Control Macros - each of which can be customized with numerous events and timing settings.
The Memory system allows for up to 100 memories per ME and MiniME per show file, while multiple show files can be stored on the USB drive. Effects Memory functionality allows for animated memory recalls, while MemoryAI ensures memory recalls will not adversely affect what is currently on-air.
Internal Video Processing
Freely-assignable within the system, the 6 internal frame syncs / format converters eliminate the need for external conversion and sync equipment. The frame sync functionality ensures untimed signals can be incorporated with ease, while format converters allow you to incorporate mixed signal equipment or send specific format outputs.
In the event that more frame syncs are required, each of the 4 MediaStore channel can be converted for use as an additional frame sync.
The 10 window MultiVIewer has been engineered to provide the best possible monitoring solutions for your production. The fully configurable layouts include automatic source naming with tally and border control. In addition, a user configurable clock can be sized and positioned anywhere on the multi-viewer screen.
