    Interesting survey results.
    Question, did ROSS Video get any votes?
    I wonder how many of the respondents knew that there was a ROSS Carbonite production Switcher operating flawlessly in 4K, producing program material, throughout the entire 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil?
    Ross is up there in the 4K market with at least two of their Production Switcher models Carbonite [1M/E to 2.5M/E] and Acuity [1M/E to 8M/E] both of which run in 4K/3GB/HD/SD-SDI. Also the ROSS XPression Graphics System operating in 4K mode, was presented at IBC this year.
