Ross Video and Sierra Video officially announced their partnership to expand the openGear terminal equipment platform. Sierra Video will join other terminal equipment vendors in supporting the openGear platform.

The openGear terminal equipment platform 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. Customers are no longer locked into one manufacturer’s frame standard and modules for their terminal equipment solutions. openGear also provides the platform with a control system that allows quick and easy monitoring and control of frames and modules on the network.

“We are very excited about what this partnership means for our customers,” says Hugh Wilcox, president of Sierra Video. “Ross’ openGear terminal equipment platform has the reliability and flexibility that video professionals expect from Sierra Video. With openGear, our
customers will be able to build the best solution for their facilities."

“We are pleased to welcome Sierra Video Systems into the openGear partnership,” said Eric Goodmurphy, Marketing product manager, RossGear “openGear continues to expand with more manufacturers, which offers customers more flexibility as technology evolves.”
