General.
Nominated for his contributions
as a technology innovator,
developing products at the forefront
of broadcast engineering, John
Ross will accept his insignia at a
ceremony to be held at a later date.
Ross, Founder of Ross Video
said: “By the time I was 12
years old, I was designing small
transmitters. This led to my first
job at age fourteen at CKY-FM
in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where I
became the transmitter operator
for the summer.”

In January 1954, the CBC hired
John to be part of the initial staff
of CBWT. At CBWT John was the
youngest member of the pioneering
“start-up” crew of the first TV Station
between Toronto and Vancouver
“I was intrigued by the visual
electronic effects used on the
Jackie Gleason Show play on
Kinescope Film recordings,”
continued Ross.
“Because there was a lot of
waiting time at the CBC, I sketched
waveforms and circuits that might
be used to create wipe patterns…
Later on I was allowed to design
and build a special effects system.”
In 1974, John founded Ross
Video, based out of Iroquois,
Ontario, and retired from the

Understanding the unique
needs of film and digital cinema

production, Anton/Bauer designed
the CINE VCLX power system to

allows users to not only power
cameras, but also the supplementary
equipment, such as lighting,
required for production.
