Ross Carbonite Black SOLO Compact Production Switcher


Today’s content creators are expected to deliver increasingly engaging content to their audiences, while keeping costs low. Compact and affordable, the Carbonite Black Solo 1ME production switcher is built with the tools to create a top-notch show, wherever you take it.

Carbonite Black Solo provides the compact form and affordability of a small switcher, while offering the big switcher feature-set of the Carbonite Black series.

Dedicated single-channel clip player built directly into the production switcher, for simple playout of video clips directly from a connected USB-media drive. There is no other production switcher in the world with this kind of built-in functionality.

If your productions are on the go, at different facilities and events, you want to make it easy to plug-in and get the show rolling. Carbonite Black Solo is built with internal video processing and MultiViewer resources, so no external gear is required.

Need a unique output for an on-screen monitor? Want to do a multi-screen projection on-stage? Carbonite Black Solo’s unique MiniMEs give you the resources to do this – without touching the main ME bus.

Smaller switchers generally feature base-level custom controls and memories, but not Carbonite Black Solo. This switcher features fully-customizable macros and a memory system with unique smart recall and effect recall functionality.

In addition to a refined control panel, Solo is part of the Ross DashBoard Control ecosystem. This network control software allows total control of all switcher functions and makes it easy to create a purpose-built UI for your specific production environment.
