Ross Video today said it purchased technology company Coiron Inc. Located in Irvine, Calif., Coiron has partnered with Ross Video to develop a suite of popular applications for use with the XPression family of real-time motion graphics systems. Terms were not disclosed.
XPression Telestrate, XPression Trackless Studio, and XPression Touch Factory let customers create video productions using XPression at both the national and local level.

As part of the acquisition, Carlos Vasquez (Coiron’s CEO) will become part of Ross Video’s graphics division in the role of technical product manager for the Ross Virtual Solutions group.
“I’ve always been impressed with Carlos’ brilliance, integrity, and the fact that he’s an all-around nice guy,” says David Ross, CEO of Ross. “Coiron is a perfect fit for Ross.”
“After years of collaboration, which has evolved from producing real time graphics and data integration projects for Ross customers, to building and releasing live production products together, we are now moving into the next phase of our relationship: becoming integral part of their awesome team,” says Vasquez. “We are really excited to join a prestigious company with years of continued growth like Ross Video. We’re looking forward to contributing as much as we can to deliver new, outstanding solutions for our global customers, especially in the Virtual Solutions product line.”
“For many years Coiron has done an outstanding job bringing cost effective, reliable products and workflows to our market. This acquisition will ensure we can continue down that path together and we’re certain the sum of our combined efforts will be even greater than the individual parts. Having someone as talented as Carlos further strengthen our team is a true gift as well,” says Bas Saleh, Ross Video’s VP of graphics.
