Iroquois, ON, Canada – April 1, 2010 – Ross Video will be releasing a range of fiber optic splitters allowing end users the ability to distribute optical signals without the need for electrical conversion.
Releasing at NAB 2010 are a range of optical splitters: single and dual 1×2, 1×4 and single 1×8. The passive optical splitters are designed to be housed in the openGear frame offering complete fiber solutions in one platform.
“Our optical splitters further broaden our fiber portfolio, allowing
customers to build complete fiber infrastructures using Ross products”,
said Eric Goodmurphy, Gear Marketing Product Manager, Ross Video. “The
ability to split signal paths in the optical domain offers significant cost
savings in a distribution system where signal paths may be split for
distribution or monitoring purposes”.
openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross
Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers.
The platform offers clients the freedom to choose technology from a wide
range of products to meet the needs of a broadcast, production, or
distribution facility while maintaining a compatible openGear frame
infrastructure. The Ross Dashboard Remote Control and Monitoring System and
companion SNMP plug-in enables unified control over all openGear cards in a
system as well as for openGear to tie in with 3rd party SNMP based systems.
The openGear modules offered by Ross include a broad selection of audio and
video products for distribution, analog conversion, Up/Down/X format
conversion, fiber, switching, keying and synchronization, as well as
backward compatibility with a suite of solutions from the RossGear 8000
