In order to better serve the needs of high-end production environments working in SD, HD or UHD formats, Version 5.0 of Ross Video’s Acuity vision mixer has grown its capabilities.

The release sees the mixer’s MultiFeed functionality improved with added Split ME controls. This makes it possible to set up an Acuity ME as two MEs with up to eight keyer assignments. The Version 5.0 release reportedly allows an eight ME machine to be configured as a 16 ME system – or four ME UHD (4K) switcher. Other features of the release include new warp effects and lighting engines while a new signal processing format enables Acuity to accept 1080P25 inputs and manage them natively.

Further to this, in a collaborative effort with Evertz, Acuity can be equipped with IP (10G) I/O signal management. The Acuity IPBlades work with Aspen and SMPTE 2022-6 Protocols and also provide standard SDI connections. According to the manufacturer, these IP I/O cards can coexist with standard Acuity I/O cards permitting hybrid IP/SDI system configurations.

In related news, Ross Video has also released the Acuity DoubleDown Panels. Aimed at large I/O systems in sport and other fast-paced productions where shift functions to access mapped sources are undesirable, DoubleDown bus models double the number of key/aux bus assignment buttons for every ME row. The manufacturer states that this greatly reduces or eliminates the need for shifts entirely.
