Use Case


At a Glance

Hyperconverged [hahy-per-kuhn-verjd] – one piece of equipment that can do the task of multiple pieces of equipment while still performing its core task.

Ross Hyperconverged Solutions merge your production equipment into a single unified platform. Our solutions use the latest technology to integrate multiple, independent products within one software-defined system to give you big production in a small package.


Less equipment provides a simpler installation. There are less interconnects between devices, and integrated components all speak the same language. A common set of IO supporting SD through UHD, SDI, fiber or IP connect to integrated processing allowing complete freedom of connectivity.


With a Hyperconverged Solution, you can quickly and easily add software-defined features throughout the platform to solve problems without the need to add any external equipment. Reduced external equipment and cabling makes reconfiguration between events much easier.


More equipment consumes more power and requires more cooling capacity. Hyperconverged systems consume less power and require less cooling, helping achieve organizational green initiatives.

Lower TCO

Hyperconverged platforms can do more tasks and typically cost less than systems made up of multiple purpose-built devices. Fewer pieces of equipment also reduce the requirement for racks, cables, power needs, and cooling. A single integrated platform is easier to configure, maintain and troubleshoot, reducing the demand on precious engineering resources. This offers reduced upfront costs, op-ex, and reduced overall TCO.

Faster Deployment

Hyperconverged systems are simpler to design and ready to go on-air quicker than systems made up of multiple devices. There are fewer boxes to rack, less cables to run and dress, and setup and configuration is all centralized to get equipment on-air ready faster.

Streamlined Workflows

Gain the benefit of a single platform with many components that work together. Integrate complex workflows spanning from connectivity, signal processing and production easily. Gain operational efficiency, higher quality productions and happier staff.

One Platform, Endless Possibilities

The award-winning Ultrix 12G Router is the ultimate routing, multiviewer, production switcher, and signal processing platform for Studios, OB Vans, and Flypacks. As the only software defined platform, customers realize significant cost, space, and power efficiencies with unparalleled flexibility and agility, especially relative to competitive hybrid routers. Ultrix offers a wide range of platform sizes from 1RU to 12RU enabling small and large installations up to 288×288 to build a hyperconverged solution.

Software Defined Multiviewer Platform

Ultriscape is the ultimate multiviewer platform for Studios, OB Vans, and Flypacks. Ultriscape is integrated into the hyperconverged platform providing flexible, low-latency signal monitoring to your entire signal chain.

Hyperconverged Production Platform

The power of Ross Video’s flagship production switcher and the game-changing feature set of its flexible hybrid routing platform have been merged to create a complete, future-proof solution that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. We call it Ultrix Acuity.

Ultrix Carbonite combines the routing and processing capabilities of Ultrix with the sophisticated creative capabilities of Carbonite, the world’s most popular mid-size production switcher. Ultrix Carbonite creates a new standard in performance, flexibility, and value, unmatched by any standalone system available today.
