Grass Valley shows Glass-to-Glass solutions at NAB

Grass Valley Helps Broadcasters Identify New Opportunities for Growth and Efficiency at 2015 NAB Show

At this year’s 2015 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, Belden Brand Grass Valley will demonstrate its powerful line of broadcast solutions and introduce its variety of new IP and 4K/UHD solutions.

Marco Lopez, President of Grass Valley expressed his excitement about NAB 15. "At this year’s NAB,” he said, “broadcasters will want to know how Grass Valley is addressing their need for more efficiency and more dynamic live production capabilities. Visitors to the Grass Valley stand will easily recognize that our priorities are aligned with theirs as we feature our unique approaches to the IP migration and capturing and producing 4K content."

Showcased solutions at NAB 2015 include Grass Valleys Glass-to-Glass IP Solution. Grass Valley’s unique "Glass-to-Glass" approach to IP spans the range of key products used in production and playout applications, including cameras, servers, production switchers, routers, multiviewers, IP gateways and control systems. The Grass Valley solution leverages proven IT technologies, such as commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) IP routing switches and Software Defined Networking (SDN) control, to maximize the flexibility essential in today’s changing media industry. Providing open, interoperable IP technology across many—if not all—elements of a broadcast workflow ensures tight "Glass-to-Glass" integration that leads to efficiency and solid on-air performance.

Karrera K-Frame S-series delivers unmatched creative freedom and offers the ultimate mid-range switcher performance, along with proven workflows and simplified control of complex productions, with multiformat support including 1080p and 4K.

LDX 4K Camera System

The LDX 4K camera is designed specifically for sports and live production content and is unique among 4K/UHD cameras in that it captures any type of live action with unrivaled quality levels by delivering outstanding high sensitivity and dynamic range. Based on standard 2/3″ imagers and a new high-bandwidth digital fiber transmission solution to capture live events without the compromises associated with digital cinema optics, the new LDX 4K camera is easily integrated into existing HD workflows and is the industry's first 4K/UHD camera with native B4 lens support.

Pegasus SDN

For customers wishing to make the transition to IP alongside SDI, Grass Valleys Pegasus is the solution. Pegasus offers a built-in SDN module for managing IP networks made up of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) switches, making use of non-proprietary technology and best-of-breed switches alongside SDI routing switchers. Pegasus SDN will make IP stream routing appear the same to an operator as routing SDI, providing transparent control.

K2 Dyno Replay System with DynoZoom

The K2 Dyno Replay System with DynoZoom allows for pan/zoom functions to be applied to high frame-rate camera systems including 3X 1080p, 6X and 4K/UHD. K2 Dyno is also the only pan/zoom system to implement timeline keyframes on all captured formats—including 4K/UHD—that actively follow a pan or zoom path created by the operator.

In addition to the product demonstrations at the booth, a number of Grass Valley experts will be speaking in the NAB pre-show workshops and show conference sessions.

Grass Valley will be in booth SL206.
