XPression by Ross Video with Matrox Extio 3

Matrox® Video has announced that Matrox Extio™ 3 IP KVM extenders are now compatible with the complete range of Ross XPression Studio real-time motion graphics solutions. Offering IP-based KVM extension and switching support, Extio 3 enables broadcasters to centralize XPression Studio CG and graphics systems in a secure equipment room while users work on high-quality graphics productions from a remote 4K or multi-display station.

“Matrox Extio 3 KVMs with XPression graphics systems allow broadcasters to optimize remote workflows and operator efficiencies,” says Patrick Twomey, Ross Video’s Director of XPression Product Marketing. “Securing XPression systems in a dedicated equipment room improves workspace ergonomics, while designers and editors still benefit from high-performance, productivity-enhancing stations that facilitate high-impact productions.”

Built from the ground up to be a 3D system, XPression Studio also supports 2D workflows—including clips—and seamlessly composites real-time 3D animation with media assets “from today’s latest design applications”. Available in 1RU, 2RU, and 4RU form factors, XPression combines seamlessly with Extio 3 IP KVM extenders, allowing users to connect to and control server-room-based systems and remotely produce graphics required for news, sports, entertainment, branding, information channels, virtual sets, augmented reality, and more.

Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders deliver ultra-low-bitrate 4Kp60 4:4:4, dual 4Kp30 4:4:4, or quad 1080p60 4:4:4 video extension and switching support over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. This KVM-over-IP technology enables users to access, share, and manage one or more centralized servers and/or workstations—located in a different room, building, campus, or city—all from a single 4K/multi-display station, optimizing operator uptime, collaboration, and productivity. Extio 3 also offers advanced security features.

“Broadcast environments built on Ross XPression systems can now integrate Matrox Extio 3 KVMs to control their systems over LAN or private WAN,” said Francesco Scartozzi, VP of sales and business development, Broadcast and Media Group at Matrox Video. “Extio 3 empowers users with uncompromised, all-access XPression system, keyboard, and touchscreen connectivity so that they can thrive in efficient and creative productions, even from a distance.”
