Following news last week of the forthcoming Ross Live program of product launches, solutions updates and live production seminars, Ross Video is now very pleased to unveil the program’s ten week schedule.
A list of the sessions can be found at www.rossvideo.com/live, and registration is now open. The program kicks off on April 28th with a look at exciting updates to XPression, the industry’s fastest growing family of real-time graphics solutions, and closes on July 14th with, as you would expect, a Ross ‘One More Thing!’ reveal. During the nine weeks in between*, Ross specialists will be hosting weekly Tech Talk sessions to discuss challenges and best practices across a variety of live production applications and environments. Ross will also be unveiling some brand-new solutions designed to help live production professionals create high impact, high efficiency productions.
During these challenging times, Ross believes it is important to support customers in any way we can. With normal life on hold, we understand that many industry professionals may have some additional time for learning and training, and so Ross has created a weekly Living Live podcast (no registration required) that will focus on a different element of live production and explore it fully. The first podcast – ‘Building a Workflow for the Unknown: TV News Editorial, Trends & Tools)’ – will be published on Monday April 20th, and will be available on our dedicated page here.
Ross Video CEO David Ross can’t wait to get started. “We’ve put a great deal of thought and effort into this comprehensive program, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our Ross Live sessions soon. We’re going to blow your socks off once again!”
* All sessions are being broadcast on the dates shown on our web page at 11am EDT (Ottawa) / 4pm BST (London). An additional session will be offered at 11:30 pm EDT (Ottawa) for customers in India/Asia/Australia/New Zealand and surrounding countries (9am New Delhi, 11:30am Singapore/Beijing, 12:30pm Tokyo, 1:30pm Canberra, 3:30pm Auckland). Please note that the date of the additional presentations in these areas will therefore be +1 day.
