Ross Video Carbonite Black Solo Overview
The Ross Video Carbonite Black Solo 1 M/E Live Production Video Switcher is an HD/SD video production switcher with an integrated control surface providing versatile switching in a highly portable format that’s easy to set up. Supporting multi-format video resolutions up to 1080p60, the Solo incorporates nine inputs including six SDI and three HDMI, and six outputs including five SDI and one HDMI.
Full control of the Carbonite Black Solo can be accessed through the top control surface. Switch inputs, control remote PTZ cameras, and apply effects, overlays, or graphics in real time with a full set of tactile button controls, joystick, and a weighted T-bar. Remote control is also an option via the DashBoard software interface for Mac, Windows, or Linux.
