Grass Valley Adds New Kayenne Panel To Production Switcher Lineup

Grass Valley production switchers continue to lead in innovation and ease of operation with ongoing development in both panels and processing engines. The new Kayenne panel offers improved tactile response, more functionality and more operational flexibility.

Launched at NAB 2023, the updated Kayenne switcher control panel affords Technical Directors comfort in a recognized layout with the additional flexibility of a touchscreen incorporated within the transition module. Also new is a software update that allows custom assignment of M/E keyers for optimized usage of all available keyers.

The Kayenne panel, like all other Grass Valley switcher panels can connect to a hardware frame like the K-Frame XP with full raster 4K 2160 I/O and internal processing. Because every Grass Valley switcher control surface can connect to either a hardware or a software processing engine, the Kayenne can also control the K-Frame CS X configuration operating on the AMPP platform.

Operators who are unfamiliar with the Kayenne panel may find it easier to mix audio and video through LiveProducer X, which reimagines the control surface as a series of templates that are accessed and triggered through a keyboard and mouse.
