Ultritouch from Ross Wins SCN Installation Product Award at InfoComm Connected 2020

Ultritouch awards winner

Ottawa, Canada, June 22nd 2020 – Ross Video is delighted to announce that the latest version of Ultritouch – our fully customizable touchscreen control panel forfacility monitoring and control – has received a System Contractor News (SCN) Installation Product Award in the ‘Most Innovative Signal Management Product’ category during InfoComm Connected 2020.

First launched in late 2018, Ultritouch is a powerful rack-mountable touchscreen panel combining traditional functionality while adapting workflows for operators fluent with smartphones. Ultritouch controls a host of Ross Video equipment as well as many third-party signal processing products. Unlike traditional control panels that feature hard keys or a combination of hard and soft keys, Ultritouch is completely customizable, meaning that operators can design the panel to suit their workflows rather than having to adapt their way of working to suit the limitations of the panel. The fully integrated touch UI with, multidevice navigation, button mapping and NDI decoding means less training, quicker setup and greater ease of use for operations staff.

“While things may look different this year, the recipients of the 2020 SCN Installation Products Awards are still exceptional pieces of technology,” said Megan A. Dutta, content director, Systems Contractor News. “We’re happy to honor the most innovative products of 2019 and looking forward to seeing what new inventions 2020 brings.”

Todd Riggs, Product Manager for Connectivity, points to the flexibility of the Ultritouch as a key advantage of the solution. “Ultritouch can be used in so many different applications and the completely customizable nature of the product makes it a real ‘must have’ in any production facility. I’m very pleased to accept this award on behalf of the Connectivity team, and it is a very welcome addition to our increasingly packed office display cabinet!”
