RPS renovates its facility in Connecticut implementing three Argo S consoles

Ross Production Services (RPS), a division of Ross Video, has updated its Connecticut facility with the integration of three new 60-fader Argo S consoles. These consoles, located in the facility’s REMI control rooms, cater to clients such as CBS, ESPN, Athlete’s Unlimited, and EA Sports. The introduction of Argo represents RPS’ initial venture into IP at the Connecticut site.

Nick Minore, Business Manager at RPS, noted, “Our studios were constructed out of necessity during the COVID pandemic. With the growing number of events each year and future considerations, it was a natural step to introduce IP technologies as we expand our capabilities. By combining Argo and the ImPulse core, we’re increasing our focus on REMI productions and will also pair Argo with Calrec’s RP1 remote production units for future events.”

Following the acquisition of the Argos, RPS relocated its existing Apollo console to a new 40-foot Box Truck, retaining a Hydra2 network in the field. Calrec Brios have been integrated into all of RPS’ Sprinter van mobile units. This transition has resulted in RPS having a fully Calrec-equipped audio fleet, aligning with the launch of its new Sprinter vans FIN1, FIN3, and FIN4 this year. RPS’ Calrec inventory now includes eight Brios with MADI, Dante, and Hydra2 hubs, one Apollo, five RP1 systems, and three Argo consoles.

Minore explained, “One of the biggest challenges with REMI production is managing audio. Using RP1s allows our A1 in Connecticut to customize what audio is being transported back to our facility in Connecticut. They don’t need to go back and forth with another audio person on-site for routing or local mixing. We can remotely pair the faders on the RP1 console to our Argo surfaces in Connecticut, making it easy to provide a real-time IFB mix onsite.”
