AE Graphics adds Ross Video XPression to its graphics armoury
AE Graphics, the graphics services provider, has added Ross Video’s XPression real-time motion graphics engine to its suite of tools.
Headquartered in the UK with offices, designers and facilities around the world, AE provides graphic design, operation and data integration services for broadcasters, sporting federations and rights holders. Its recent credits include the ICC Cricket World Cup, Amazon Prime Video’s Premier League coverage and the Rugby World Cup.
As part of the deal, the company has created a package of content for Ross Video’s news workflow solutions presentation that will be shown online as part of the Ross Live 2020 program of product launches and webinars.
Partnering with the XPression product team, AE has created a comprehensive range of graphics including dynamic lower-third templates, over-the-shoulder and full screen templates with replaceable asset fields linked to Ross Video’s Streamline Media Asset Management and XPression Maps openMAM solutions, offering a complete self-service graphics workflow.
This marks the first time that a third-party design firm has created presentation content for XPression.
“We are delighted to partner with AE’s award-winning designers as they create stunning visual content for our Ross Live program,” said Patrick Twomey, director of XPression product management for Ross Video.
“We always say that the process of migrating to XPression from another graphics platform is both straightforward and painless, and AE have proved that absolutely.”
Stuart Coles, chief commercial officer for AE Graphics, added: “We are excited to announce this new partnership and for the new opportunities that adding XPression to our range of supported graphics platforms will bring about in all of our global markets and especially in North America.
“Our development teams have been extremely impressed with the range of creative and integration tools available within XPression and at how quickly we have managed to incorporate it into AE’s unique workflow.
“We have a proven track record of delivering visually striking, data rich and fully-integrated solutions to our clients and are committed to working closely with Ross Video to help existing and prospective customers realize the true potential of XPression within their news and sports production.”
