The Indian free-to-air news channel opts for greater flexibility and scalability as it upgrades its playout and production with Grass Valley’s iTX integrated playout platform.
Discovery’s leading multi-sports brand, Eurosport, has selected Grass Valley solutions as part of a major technology transformation to provide ‘true cloud’ architecture supporting playout across the network’s sports broadcasts.
Global broadcast solutions specialist, ES Broadcast, has made a significant purchase of Grass Valley’s revolutionary LDX 100 IP camera platform. The UK-based company has invested in 50 cameras, with an option on 50 more before the end of the year, to meet increasing client demand for the LDX 100 and to prepare for major sporting events in 2021.
BBC Cymru Wales is broadcasting live from its state-of-the-art Central Square facility in Cardiff, leveraging Grass Valley’s end-to-end, open standards-based IP infrastructure and workflows.
With its core business in live sports production, Grass Valley has seen its revenue contract significantly over the past eight months but with a new integrated software-defined product roadmap, it looks to bounce back while “reducing the pain” of migrating to IP. This insight, and more, was revealed during a virtual press conference presented by company management in early October.
Built around Grass Valley IP solutions including GV Orbit Dynamic System Orchestration and Kahuna 9600 IP production switcher, the all-IP, 4K UHD HDR capable unit gives the UK-based company a ready to go and future-proof mobile production capability and expands its ability to support high-end live productions.
