Ross Video Certifies Euphonix Audio Integration

Publish date:

IROQUOIS, ON, CANADA-– Ross Video announced the certification of Euphonix's implementation of the Ross Audio Protocol (RAP). With this integration, Euphonix System 5-B, System 5-BP and Max Air audio mixer consoles can be managed from any Ross Video Vision QMD/X, Vision MD/X or Synergy MD production switcher.

"The convenience and power of Ross switchers continues to increase with
every partner that implements support for RAP," said David Ross, CEO.
"The addition of a leading manufacturer of large format digital audio
mixing consoles such as Euphonix demonstrates the value of the protocol as
well as increases the operational productivity of our joint customers."

Using the Protocol, operators of Ross switchers can execute functions such
as setting Euphonix fader level, turn fader on/off; set pan position,
pre-fade listen (PFL) on/off and solo on/off. RAP integration is available
in all latest release Euphonix System 5-B, System 5-BP and Max Air
consoles. This optional software upgrade requires no additional hardware
and enables external control of all channel faders, on/off switches, pans,
and PFL. The feature can be enabled or disabled locally on the fly to allow
seamless transitions between audio-follow-video functionality and manual

In some environments, audio-follow-video is used to complement an audio
operator. Transitions and set show segments are automated while an audio
operator is required to mix complex segments such as live bands. Through
Euphonix's flexible control surface architecture, channels that have been
designated for control by Ross switchers may be hidden from the surface. An
audio operator therefore has access to all console faders while the video
production switcher simultaneously controls other console resources in the

"Ross has tested and validated all aspects of the Euphonix implementation of RAP," said David Ross. "We know that this integration will be greatly appreciated by many existing and future customers."
