AE Graphics (AE), the premier video graphics services provider throughout Europe, Asia and Oceania, has announced the addition of Ross Video’s XPression real-time motion graphics engine to their suite of customer tools. Headquartered in the UK with offices, designers and facilities around the world, AE provides graphic design, operation and data integration services for the world’s foremost broadcasters, sporting federations and rights holders. AE is launching its US office in New York in H2 2020.
As part of the commitment to Ross Video’s XPression, AE 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. This is the first time a third-party design firm has created presentation content for XPression, and the designs that have been chosen vividly highlight the impressive artistic capabilities of AE’s creative team. Partnering with the XPression product, 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.
“We are delighted to partner with AE’s award-winning designers as they create stunning visual content for our Ross Live program,” says 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.”
Commenting on the new relationship, Stuart Coles, Chief Commercial Officer for AE, echoes the sentiment. “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.” BCS Bureau
