Meet the Demands

Acuity is the most powerful production switcher ever designed by Ross Video. It provides extensive compositing and transition capabilities and customizable features that can address the needs of even the most complex productions.


Engage with your Audience

Acuity’s amazing effects repertoire, including 2D and available 3D DVEs with Warp and Curvilinear effects, on-board MediaStores for still and animated files, and Aux Mixing and Keying allow operators to create eyeball-engaging effects that help advance any storyline.


Multifeed Magic

Complicated productions often come with complex signal routing requirements for secondary feeds, on-set monitor displays, clean feed outputs, and more. Acuity’s extensive multifeed capabilities can meet those challenges while reducing dependency on external routing systems.



Acuity is available in two different frame sizes with expandable ME and MultiViewer capabilities. And either frame can be paired with one of six available Control Panels, each with expanded “Double-Down” versions.



Available 12G Multiprocessing Input boards with integrated Frame Syncs, Format Converters, SDR-HDR Converters, and Proc Amp/Color Correctors provide an all-encompassing upgrade path to UHD operations.


Control, Control, Control

Acuity features the widest range of device control protocols of any Ross production switcher. From audio mixers to tally systems, chances are that if a device can be controlled, Acuity can do it.

Acuity Overview Video

The Acuity Production Switcher combines limitless production power with aesthetic beauty and unprecedented connectivity.


Powerful Production Engines

Acuity is available in 4RU and 8RU sizes, each with different I/O, ME and MultiViewer counts, providing even mid-size facilities the opportunity to leverage the enormous processing and signal management power of Acuity. Both frames support virtually every major video format from SD to UHD.

Output Transitions

Using Acuity’s independent Aux mixing and keying features, on-set monitor feeds or simple branded secondary outputs can be easily created without tying up valuable ME resources.

Integrated MultiViewers

A wide range of available on-board monitoring solutions keep Control Room staff updated while reducing system complexity by eliminating the need for external routing or signal distribution systems.

Split MEs & Configurable Outputs

Acuity’s powerful MultiFeed feature expands the capability of each ME. Any ME can be split into two separate transition and layering systems with user-configured key layers. Additionally, outputs from the split MEs can be managed separately and independently.

Dual Menu Display & On-Panel Module

Acuity’s included industrial-grade touchscreen displays the unique dual menu system which allows for separate menu sections to be displayed independently on the upper and lower portion of the screen. Additionally, the available on-panel menu module puts those menus at the operators fingertips for even more control.

DVE Resources

In HD, each ME provides sixteen 2D keyer resize engines while the available ME 3D DVE provides advanced perspective, Warp, and Curvilinear effects. The available MultiViewer 3D DVE “floats” and can be assigned anywhere in the system.
