As part of the growth and expansion of XPression, Ross Video is proud to announce a partnership with Sixty, a Norwegian design agency with more than 12 years experience creating channel brands, on-air graphics and openers for TV.

Sixty is the result of a merger between the award winning broadcast design agency Gosu and the digital product developers at Kamikaze Media. Having worked on broadcast design and branding for leading channels across the globe for more than a decade, Sixty has extensive experience of the industry’s best broadcast graphics engines and software. This makes Sixty an attractive strategic partner for many big media companies worldwide; the natural link between content, distribution and technology.

Commenting on the partnership, Alexander Øksenberg, Sales and Marketing Director with Sixty notes “Traditional broadcasters are increasingly having to be cost cautious due to fierce competition from OTT and streaming. We believe that the wide range of advanced software and hardware solutions delivered by Ross Video is not only superior when it comes to price; the real clincher is their product stack and continuous focus on adding value to the media industry through innovation, open ISP and their focus on creating long-term relationships with partners such as ourselves. We’ve used a number of graphics solutions from major manufacturers over the years and we can safely say that XPression allows us to generate a visual quality of graphics that ranks amongst the very best in the world”.

Ivo Guilini, Ross Video’s Scandinavian Sales Manager, adds “We’ve been extremely impressed with Sixty’s portfolio of work and it’s clear we both have a very similar approach rooted in creativity and excellent customer service. We’re very much looking forward to developing this partnership and seeing what eye-catching and creative content Sixty can dream up with XPression next!”
