Grass Valley has released three new SDI/IP production solutions for cameras, switchers and replay, designed to reduce complexity with a common workflow regardless of the format, provide a simple set up for any UHD/3G/HD resolution, and I/O scaling for multi-layered video.
The GV K-Frame XP video production centre provides flexibility to operate in any format, from HD to 4K UHD 2160p, and offers 192 x 96 I/Os in IP, SDI or both. The full raster video processing provides a maximum of nine M/Es, each with six keyers, and 16 optional 3D iDPMs for any production.
The LDX 150 offers triple speed UHD with global shutter and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) application on a NativeIP backbone. A new Xenios imager, paired with the global shutter, offers “best sensitivity with increased sharpness” in fine structures and life-like images, a wide dynamic HDR range, and an improved signal-to-noise ratio as well as additional depth of field, even in low light conditions.
Grass Valley is also introducing the LiveTouch 2000 replay and highlights system, an ultra-high density video server that offers up to 12 UHD/ 24 HD channels in 3RU. An intuitive interface makes instant replay workflows quick and easy in HD or UHD, and allows the LiveTouch 2000 to be deployed for studio and sports applications.
Marco Lopez, General Manager of Live Production at Grass Valley, said, “We recognise that our customers are facing a huge demand for premium content like 1080p HDR or 4K UHD, while at the same time trying to manage the complexities of developing that content.
“Everything we develop at Grass Valley seeks to balance those requirements of enabling the best in live media production while making it simpler and more manageable to create. Grass Valley’s SDI, IP and cloud-native portfolio ensures our customers can continue to produce the exciting live content for which they are known.”
