With a goal of bringing in more innovation and its knowledge of broadcast routing systems, Ross Video acquired Montalto, a Virginia Beach-based research and development company.
Employees at Montalto will now work for the Ross Virginia team and will take responsibility for advancing the Ross routing systems lines, as well as contributing technology and products to Ross’ openGear product portfolio.
The Virginia location is Ross Video’s third R&D lab in the U.S., joining one in Boston and one in California. The Ontario, Canada-based company also has a lab in Ottawa, Canada; Brussels, Belgium; Hilversum, The Netherlands; and Melbourne, Australia.
Mark Sizemore, managing director of Montalto and now director of routing solutions for Ross called the acquisition an amazing opportunity.
“It’s been a dream of the Montalto team to get back to our core passion, and we’re able to do that again with Ross. Stay tuned for new product additions and enhancements to the Ross routing and openGear product lines,” he said in a statement.
