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.
All models of 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. Of primary concern when designing Carbonite was its ease of use. 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.
A variety of ergonomically designed 1, 2, and 3 ME control panels provide Carbonite with the capabilities of a much larger switcher. Contributing to the power and ease of use of Carbonite are attributes such as the effortless ability to perform full previews on any keyer and next transition style operation. Carbonite delivers a professional grade feature set with DVE functions, media stores, auxiliary buses, integrated multi-viewers, production software tools, advanced chroma keying, and range of I/O types. Create imaginative and dramatic productions with this powerful feature set.
