Launched in 2019 and operating in modular openGear form factor, Gator Toolbox offers UHD up/down/cross and HDR conversion, standards conversion and frame synchronisation for UHD workflows over 12G-SDI. A V2 software update now adds SQD (quad-link gearbox in or out) and user presets to enable operators to quickly recall common configurations. In addition, V2 supports new hardware including discreet AES audio embedding/de-embedding and support for fibre. Software updates to both the Raptor and Newt IP gateway and conversion solutions are also downloadable.

The latest versions of OverDrive (V19.3) and Caprica (V6.3) are also available. The Audio Lock feature enables operators to lock or unlock specific audio channels so that automation events can be overridden during breaking news or unexpected interview situations. In addition, new Virtual Keyers and Inputs allow for up to 32 external display devices to be controlled by a single template, without using any primary switcher resources. Bus-based custom controls have been added to simplify the process of triggering devices without intervention. A Live Preview feature lets operators view live video streams in the user interface and interact with sources.

An inverted S2 Lift is available for the Furio SkyDolly ceiling-mounted, rail-based robotic camera system. Providing dramatic camera motion shots from above, the S2 Lift is capable of supporting a full-size camera and prompter, creating dolly shots with up to 48.3cm of vertical lift and net payloads of up to 30kg. The two-stage lift mechanism limits flex and minimises sway, while the linear rail design means that SkyDolly can be used in virtual set applications.

A free control system for Furio and CamBot pan/tilt heads and pivot PTZ cameras is available as a plug-in to the Ross DashBoard control system. Operators can store, recall and manage their robotic presets, and all axes are controllable onscreen without the need for a physical joystick. Key settings such as joystick limits, colour balance, exposure and streaming settings are all accessible.

Finally, the live production real-time graphics platform, XPression, has been updated with V10, including a multi-threaded video codec that supports UHD, HDR and Wide Colour Gamut.
