XPression high end 3D Character Generator

TV Podmoskovie, the Television Channel servicing “The Moscow Area” in Russia, chose Ross Video’s XPression Character Generator and Graphics Systems to provide live, vivid graphics on demand.

Late 2009, TV Podmoskovie attended an XPression demonstration at NAT Expo in Moscow. After seeing the key features demonstrated, they were immediately convinced XPression was the right character generator to fulfill their broadcast needs.

“I was very impressed watching XPression in action,” said Vlad Pavlov, Technical Director, TV Podmoskovie. “XPression is one of the few character generators with the ability to demonstrate how all their available features work, and how easily it can be done.”

“We are excited TV Podmoskovie is the first broadcaster in Russia to invest in XPression,” said Alan Webb, Regional Sales Manager – Eastern Europe, Ross Video. “XPression was purchased April 2010, and after installation, their staff was trained by Ross Technical Support. This allowed an easy and seamless transition on air where their viewers could visually reap the benefits. We look forward to continuing our relationship with TV Podmoskovie.”
