Graphite brings the capabilities of the Ross Video Carbonite production switcher, a feature rich version of XPression 3D motion graphics, two channels of clip server, and the newly developed RAVE audio engine; all within a single 4RU chassis
At the heart of this system, is a Carbonite engine built onto a PCIe card. Because of this innovative design, Graphite offers unmatched performance and reliability in an all-in-one system. This eliminates traditional performance issues arising from an overtaxed CPU – such as stuttered animations, unresponsive operation, and more.
Additionally, this self-contained Carbonite engine is directly powered by the system, making it immune to any possible computer sub-system reboots, crashes, or updates. The only way the Carbonite stops operating during production, is a complete loss of power. Graphite contains the complete features of a Carbonite switcher, including 2 MEs with 5 keyers each, 4 MiniME processors with 2 keyers each, 4 floating DVEs, 2 UltraChrome chroma keyers, 2 advanced pattern generators per ME, and 4 channels of MediaStore.
