Iroquois, ON, Canada – January 08, 2007 – Ross Video and Algolith officially announced their partnership to expand the openGear terminal equipment platform. Algolith is a leader in noise reduction, de-interlacing, and up/down conversion technologies, and will join other terminal equipment vendors in supporting the award winning platform.
