Ross Video Makes Acquisition Number Sixteen – Image Video
Posted on Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Ottawa, Canada, December 1st 2020 – Ross Video is pleased to announce the acquisition of Toronto-based Image Video. Image Video was founded in 1974 – the same year as Ross – and is best-known for its TSI tally control platform, used by major broadcast network providers, sports venues, corporate video facilities and houses of worship. With sales in over twenty-nine countries, an impressive customer base and hundreds of supported device protocols (ranging from legacy serial connections to the latest ST2110 workflows), the TSI platform continues to be a leader in the Tally and UMD product class.

This acquisition – Ross Video’s sixteenth since 2009 – will see Image Video’s product team led by by Zach Wilkie and David Russell, along with their R&D and technical support teams all transition over to Ross.  Zach Wilkie now Product Manager, Ross Tally Systems, is excited at the prospect of life as part of Ross Video. "As a fellow Canadian company that was founded in the same year, we’ve obviously grown up alongside Ross Video and we’ve seen the impressive growth and expansion of the Ross business, especially during the last decade. We’re very pleased to become part of the family and this acquisition will help us reach new international markets and scale much more effectively."

David Ross, CEO, reflects on the personal significance of the acquisition. "Back in 1973, my father was in hospital after breaking his leg. Jim Leitch, the founder of Leitch Video (now Imagine Communications) visited and advised my father to start his own company. He said that there was a Leitch Video and an Image Video in Canada, so there should also be a Ross Video. It’s possible that if Image Video didn’t exist, my father may not have had such role models to show the way, and even if Dad did start our company, we may not be named Ross Video today! All these years later, Image is now part of Ross, something that my father agrees is quite remarkable. Image’s TSI tally platform is a great complement to our existing range of solutions and enables Ross to bring even more choice to the live production market."
