Vision Switchers > Ross Video Carbonite Black

The most successful production switcher ever just got better.

Carbonite Black brings expanded I/O and ME count to the Carbonite series, with a new control panel, 3 Full MEs, 36 inputs, and 22 outputs – plus all of the superior features found in other Carbonite models such as MiniMEs, MultiScreen, 3G and UHD (4K) format support.

Carbonite has been the favored choice of many media organizations with production requirements for a mid-sized 1, 2 or 2.5 ME production switcher. For many larger productions, operators have expressed the desire for an expanded version of Carbonite that retains all the familiar, highly desirable features and capabilities. Carbonite Black is the answer to that request and delivers even more.


UHD Switcher

Carbonite Black offers native UHD processing and delivers on the promise of a true UHD production switcher – at no extra cost.

Single-Link 12G Connectivity
The Carbonite Black Plus 12G takes the most powerful Carbonite Black frame ever and adds single link 12G connectivity! The ability to accept 12G HD-SDI single link UHD signals provides total signal flexibility for signal format mixing and matching.

Aims-Compaint IP
CarboniteIP delivers IP support for Carbonite Black, with AIMS-compliant IP options to interface to standards-based SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 infrastructures.


Carbonite Black Panels
From small flight packs to large control room installations, it’s easy to find a Carbonite Black panel to suit your production. For every task you need to perform there is a dedicated button, no more searching and stepping through menus. Carbonite has been a success with thousands of operators because the most complex tasks can be performed quickly and easily.

Dashboard Control
DashBoard provides a single interface for full control and management of your Carbonite switcher. Enjoy setup, configuration, and operation from a network-connected DashBoard application. To really unlock the magic of DashBoard, build out a CustomPanel to consolidate control of your entire production solution into a single customized interface.
