With the level of functional sophistication offered by CrossOver, there is no need to compromise on production functionality and quality. A space constrained working environment or a limited operational budget should not lead you to lower your production standards or expectations. Similarly, a need for rugged mobility or operational longevity should not require a massive capital investment. CrossOver production switchers are a budget sensitive solution that offers broadcast-quality live production in a durable, space conscious platform.
At Ross, production switchers are our passion. We have been making them since 1974 and they are at the CORE of our business. Our goal with CrossOver is to provide a small footprint yet professional grade production system at a budget sensitive price. The result is an affordable, compact and powerful switcher loaded with the high value features that are required to provide quality productions. The CrossOver series features the same tough components and comprehensive design philosophy that goes into our Premiere Vision product line. CrossOver enables the creation of sophisticated, professional grade broadcasts in a compact package.
Easy to Use, Powerful Features
All models of CrossOver feature a breadth of capabilities that make these switchers unique in their class. Ross dedicates a great deal of effort in ensuring that our products enable a significant level of operational control. Of primary concern when designing CrossOver was its ease of use. Starting with the use of large, back lit buttons and Panel Glow for increased operator accuracy, through to the placement of frequently used buttons, CrossOver provides intuitive panel ergonomics and production efficiencies. Not only can you rapidly execute a variety of wipe patterns and memory recalls in just a few pushes, the implementation of a rapid, auto-follow menu system also means that you don't need to memorize menu hierarchies in order to fine tune your actions. No time or effort is wasted navigating through the panel to see and get what you want.
A simple turn of a knob will apply a border, adjust softness and activate multiplication and rotation to create your own unique look.
Big Switcher Feel
CrossOver presents a small 1 ME control panel and the feel of a much larger switcher. Contributing to the power and ease of use of CrossOver are attributes such as true next transition style operation and the effortless ability to perform full previews on any keyer. Imaginative and dramatic productions facilitated by:
10 input multi-viewer
Dual animation and still stores with alpha
MemoryAI recall to preview
Color wash generator
Two channels of 2D DVEs
Ten handy transition patterns including
professional circle wipes

Video switchers, also known as a video display controller (abbreviated to VDC) is essentially the key component of a video signal generator. This kind of vision mixer is used for generating a visual signal in computers, and in some cases an audio signal too, although this is just a secondary function. The video switcher first made its appearance in our homes in the first types of home computers, such as the old Commodores and Spectrums, and is now an integral part of video signal generator logic. A video mixer cannot work alone however, as it needs support from various other parts of the computer to work. For example, pixel data is stored in the computerâ??s RAM, while character fonts are held in the ROM. Therefore, the video switcher chip will usually be totally integrated into the main computer, and so users will be able to see the video RAM it gives in the CPUs memory map. It can also act as a co-processor that acts independently, although this is not usually the case. The video switcher is generally available in three different formats. Video shifters are the most basic type of production shifter, and take care of the video timing signals. These obtain data one byte at a time from the CPU, and use synchronization signals to produce a video signal. The CTRC video switcher reads data directly from the computerâ??s RAM, and this is then outputted either through a ROM or directly. Far more complex are video interface controllers. This kind of video switcher supports sprites and video RAM which is dedicated towards color attributes, thus making extremely high-resolution images possible.
