Algolith Enters openGear Terminal Equipment Platform

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.

openGear is based on an open-architecture, 2RU modular frame, designed to accommodate up to 10 cards. A wide variety of cards are available from terminal equipment vendors supporting the openGear platform allowing facilities the freedom and flexibility to choose the best technology for their particular applications.
