Tria Express Duet

Compact Production Server


Economical Production Video Server

When you need a workhorse video server for a variety of live production needs — such as recording one or more live video streams, playing key & fill animated elements, time-slipping a live feed, playing synchronized animated loops into multiple on-set displays, presenting playlists of content to a live audience, and much more — Tria Express Duet will fit the bill without breaking your budget.

Featuring flexible, instantly reconfigurable video channels, a highly intuitive user interface, terabytes of internal media storage, and a wide variety of remote-controlled abilities, Tria Express Duet is specifically designed for a huge variety of live television and live webcasting production environments.

2-Channels or 4-Channels

The base model Tria Express Duet features two bi-directional video channels, with each channel capable of either record or play functionality.


We get it. Mountains of money depend on the integrity of your live productions — and happily, Tria Express Duet rises to the challenge!  Tria Express Duet is built with hardware-based, real-time media processing engines, ensuring your live productions will NEVER suffer from video playout stutters, audio dropouts, user interface freezes, or unexpected hang-ups.

Protected to the Max

Maximum system reliability is ensured with dual-redundant, hot-swappable power supply modules that protect against power supply failures.

Professional Quality

Tria Express Duet employs the ‘mezzanine-quality’ AVC-Intra Class 100 video codec and features uncompressed digital audio with 24-bit resolution and 48kHz sampling.

These technical specs ensure your live productions will always look their best — with crisp, clean, and clear visuals and impactful audio clarity.

Single Clip Workflow

The native Video+Key+Audio” (VKA) architecture of Tria Express Duet unifies these three media elements into a single clip asset.

This eliminates the need to create, manage, import, and control two separate assets for each ‘Fill+Key’ element. This feature alone will dramatically simplify your pre-production and live operations.

Media Files Galore!

Integrated media file import tools in Tria Express Duet dramatically streamline file-based workflows — and support a huge variety of media file codecs and wrappers.

Ingested media files are automatically transcoded, resized, and have the frame rate adjusted to match the active operational video standard of the Tria Express Duet video server during file import.

Tria Express Duet Models

Tria Express Duet is a single hardware platform that can be licensed as either a two-channel or a four-channel model.

A two-channel Tria Express Duet can be easily upgraded in the field to a four-channel model at any time.

Ross DashBoard Integration

As a standard feature, Tria Express Duet effortlessly integrates with Ross DashBoard:

Improved Toolset for Building CustomPanels

In addition to premade control panels, connecting to a Tria Express Duet through DashBoard will provide you with numerous commands and parameters, which can be used to construct sophisticated custom control panels known as CustomPanels. Combine the data from the Tria Express Duet’s parameters with those of other Ross Video products to create solutions so unique and powerful that they have never been imagined before!
