More powerful, more compact and more affordable than ever. Carbonite Ultra uses the latest technology to distill the best of the Carbonite series into a single, next generation platform.
Built on the foundation of Carbonite, the world’s most popular mid-sized switcher platform. Carbonite Ultra is backed by a team with 40+ years of production switcher development and one of the highest-rated customer support teams in the industry.
Packed with the operational features that made Carbonite a success, only this time, we’re giving customers more of the showpiece features they rave about.
Video the way you need it. Carbonite Ultra supports all common video standards including SD, HD, 3G 1080P, as well as 12G UHD for multi-ME configurations. Also, Carbonite Ultra can add an optional license for a full set of I/O processing resources to ensure a visually-consistent and engaging production.
Continually benefit from a software-defined hardware platform that is built to last you a lifetime. Carbonite Ultra customers will receive new features via free-of-charge software updates and exciting new software-licensed functions that go beyond just a production switcher.
Better but not necessarily bigger. All of Carbonite Ultra’s robust features and substantial I/O have been built into a single 1RU chassis. This production switcher will fit anywhere you need it to.
Sleeker, feature-rich and ready for shows in any format. The best part? Carbonite Ultra is offered at the lowest price Ross has ever offered for a mid-size production switcher. Serious production horsepower and technology is now more affordable than ever.

Support for Common Video Standards
Carbonite Ultra offers native support for SD, HD and 3G 1080P formats.
Carbonite Ultra supports the range of HDR formats including HLG, PQ and S-LOG3 – plus support for bi-directional SDR to HDR-HLG conversion.

Each FSFC+ offers Frame Syncs for inputs – along with Color Correction, Proc Amps and Format Conversion for inputs and outputs.

Standalone Reference Generator
Lock Carbonite Ultra into the available house reference (Black Burst / Tri-Level) or use Carbonite Ultra’s built-in reference generator (Black Burst only) to sync your equipment. The ability to output reference directly from the Carbonite Ultra frame is great for small flight packs and mobile production vehicles.
