More powerful, more compact and more affordable than ever. Carbonite Ultra uses the latest technology to distill the best of the Carbonite series into a single, next generation platform.
3 Full MEs and 4 MiniMEsCarbonite Ultra’s 1RU chassis packs up to 3 full MEs & 4 built- in floating MiniMEs, equivalent to a 7ME switcher with 20 key channels!
Device IntegrationThrough Dashboard and built-in control protocols, Carbonite Ultra integrates seamlessly with both Ross Video and 3rd party products. Now with the ability to display device and custom panels on the Carbonite Ultra’s Dashboard GUI, device integration is tighter than ever.
Macros & MemoriesAn intelligent memory system and timeline macros can reduce the most complex events down to a single button push.
Media PlaybackFor still & animated media, there are 4 fully-independent MediaStores. Say goodbye to ganging channels, because each MediaStore is now fully-capable of handling key + fill media.
Chroma KeyUltraChrome is a chroma key that rivals the quality of an external chroma keyer. Unique features like soft-edge masks and auto-image analysis make it easy to setup quickly and get the best results from your green screen. Complemented with built-in frame delay, it is a perfect fit in virtual set productions.
