openGear Continues to Expand with Sonifex

IROQUOIS, ONTARIO, CANADA--Ross Video, and Sonifex officially announced their partnership to expand the openGear terminal equipment platform. Sonifex is a leader in audio equipment for radio, tv, security and telecommunications and will join other terminal equipment vendors in supporting the platform.

The openGear terminal equipment platform is based on an open-architecture, 2RU modular frame, designed to accommodate up to 10 cards. A wide variety of cards are available from terminal equipment vendors supporting the openGear platform, allowing facilities the freedom and flexibility to choose the best technology for their particular applications. Customers are no longer locked into one manufacturer's frame standard and modules for their terminal equipment solutions. openGear also provides the platform with a control system that allows quick and easy monitoring and control of frames and modules on the network.

"The openGear platform will allow Sonifex the ability to continue to offer quality and reliable products expected by our customers," says Paul Schofield, director of new products. "It makes sense to offer the already successful Sonifex portfolio to an even broader market. We are pleased to have this opportunity with Ross Video, and we look forward to giving customers the freedom to choose the best solution for their broadcast needs."

"We welcome Sonifex into the openGear platform," said Eric Goodmurphy, marketing product manager, RossGear. "Sonifex along with all openGear partners provides customers the best solution in one standard frame."
