Lietuvos Ryto TV Upgrades Newsroom with GV Stratus

Lietuvos Ryto TV upgraded from a GV Aurora SD News system to the GV STRATUS HD system for its TV channel, which provides news, current affairs and analysis.

The ability to upload content quickly via Telestream Vantage to the web portal was also important for the Lithuanian entertainment channel.

The upgrade - enabled with Baltic system integrator Hannu Pro - includes a number of GV STRATUS client licenses running on the STRATUS server subsystem, providing functionality and services, K2 media servers and EDIUS High Res and Proxy editing seats for a full post-production broadcast solution.

Audrius Berdikšlis, CTO of Lietuvos Ryto TV stated, “As a long-term user of the GV Aurora news production system, we can definitely say that the Grass Valley news system solution is effective, comfortable and suitable for news workflows in television. The other important feature of the new GV STRATUS system is that it allows our journalists to access existing content proxies for fast NLE editing remotely. All video content with metadata from our current Aurora system will be transferred to the new GV STRATUS system in the near future.”

Grass Valley says with the integration between GV STRATUS and EDIUS, and a “unique and highly optimized” hybrid editing workflow, journalists at Lietuvos Ryto TV can mix and move low-resolution and high-resolution assets, including so-called “wild files” from citizen journalists across multiple sites, and perform full editing in the field with the EDIUS Workgroup, included as standard in all GV STRATUS Newsroom configurations. Because proxy files are used extensively and intelligently, there is no need for complex SAN configurations.
