OTTAWA — One of Ottawa’s most successful companies is marking a landmark partnership deal with Red Bull Media House (Salzburg, Austria) by celebrating with its staff and dignitaries.
Ross Video manufactures technology solutions for the live production and broadcast industries. Company CEO David Ross (former Ottawa CEO of the Year) will host the parking lot party with hundreds of employees and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to mark the “incredible partnership” — and to celebrate many jobs coming to both the Capital and the company’s manufacturing plant in Iroquois.
Founded in that South Dundas village on the Seaway, Ross Video is actively recruiting for its core product development, R&D and manufacturing teams in Canada, although the global company also maintains six international offices across four continents.

Ross Video’s Parking Lot Party will take place at their Ottawa location on Tuesday, May 28, at 10 a.m. with a staff celebration and barbecue to follow.
With an impressive 27 consecutive years of global growth, Ross is a leader in Canadian innovation; the company holds numerous patents and won a technical Emmy® award in 2017 for its openGear platform that was judged to have materially changed the way television is made. Ross employs almost 800 people worldwide and the company’s solutions are sold in over 120 countries and used aboard the International Space Station.
