Ross Video and Practel officially announced their partnership to expand the openGear terminal equipment platform. Practel designs and manufactures a diverse range of professional broadcast equipment, and will join other terminal equipment vendors in supporting the award-winning platform.
openGear is based on an open-architecture, 2RU modular frame, designed to accommodate up to 10 cards. A wide variety of cards are available from terminal equipment vendors supporting the openGear platform, allowing facilities the freedom and flexibility to choose the best technology for their particular applications. Customers are no longer locked into one manufacturer's frame standard and modules for their terminal equipment solutions. openGear also provides the platform with a control system that allows quick and easy monitoring and control of frames and modules on the network.
"We are very excited to be joining the openGear platform as technology partner," says Nenad Radoman, CEO, Practel. "Our R&D teams are constantly developing new products, and improving the wide range of existing broadcast products. openGear allows Practel to deliver the best terminal equipment solution to our broad customer base."
"I am both pleased and excited with the announcement of Practel joining the platform and look forward to the broadcast solutions they will bring," says Eric Goodmurphy, marketing product manager, RossGear. "openGear continues to expand with more manufacturers offering customers worldwide more and more flexibility and freedom of choice in their terminal equipment solutions."
