Ross Video’s new Carbonite 2S offers a 2 ME control panel but with 24 source select buttons instead of 32. The result is a smaller footprint, and a more affordable price point.

Based on its highly successful bigger brother, the Carbonite 2X, the new 2S has individual ME Effects Memory keypads that many operators prefer, and the panel can be configured with any Carbonite processing engine, including the new Carbonite eXtreme. It also comes with Ross’ ViewControl touchscreen production controller and LiveAssist Graphical User Interfaces. When purchased as a Studio System Package with Ross’ BlackStorm Playout Server and XPression Motion Graphics System, it becomes a complete production system.

“The success of Carbonite has been simply astonishing,” says Nigel Spratling, switcher business development manager, Ross Video. “It has surpassed all of our expectations, and we have now shipped almost 2000 systems since it’s introduction. At Ross we listen carefully to our customers to help make our products better, and from their feedback we designed the Carbonite 2S to better suit environments with space limitations as well as offer all of the power of a 2X Carbonite at a great price point.”

Like all Ross products, the new Carbonite 2S is fully integrated with their free DashBoard PanelBuilder application, allowing operators to build their own custom control interfaces for the entire production system.

The Carbonite 2S is now available for shipping.
