​Grass Valley Introduces Latest T2 Series Digital Recorder/Player

Grass Valley has a new production server in the form of the T2 Series 3 SD/HD audio/video playout center. It features a 7-inch LCD touch screen on its front panel, and a 1-channel input and 2-channel output that can be used simultaneously for recording and playback.

Each of the models—T2 Express 3, T2 Pro 3 and T2 Elite 3—"features more powerful CPU and greater memory capacity to improve stability and reliability” according to the vendor. Depending on content format, T2 can accept files via one of its six USB 3.0 ports (two at front and four at rear) or by data transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. Broadcasters can even edit a clip recorded on T2 Series 3 instantaneously using Grass Valley's Edius editing software.


“When it comes to live production, broadcasters can’t afford to waste time fumbling with counterintuitive, bulky systems that ultimately don’t deliver high-quality content quickly and efficiently,” said Pete Semerak, vp, news, Grass Valley. “T2 Series 3 is flexible, providing one SD/HD platform for ingest, replay, transmission, editing and content management, while also offering a user-friendly experience, combining VTR-like controls with touchscreen and workstation operation.”
