The Ross Video Carbonite Solo is a perfect fit for smaller productions where quality and operational performance is essential, in a compact package that is remarkably affordable. Designed to offer the features, performance, reliability and high-quality design of the best-selling Carbonite Series Production Switchers. Solo is packed full of the features that Carbonite owners love to use every day and delivers incredible video production horsepower to equip a production studio, flight pack, or add as a back-up switcher. The powerful, single ME in Carbonite Solo, includes four keyers plus a transition keyer, for DVE and Media Wipes, as well as, one high quality Ultrachrome chroma keyer.

Solo also comes equipped with two MiniMEs - perfect for use in event production or for secondary outputs. Each MiniME has two keyers of its own - providing Solo with an amazing nine keyers in total. Carbonite Solo is available three ways. The first is the beautifully styled, all-in-one with combined control panel and electronic processing, offering maximum portability. The second, the rack mount electronic frame with soft control panel is the most cost effective. The third, a control panel plus separate electronic frame for installations where it is desirable to separate operation from electronics.
