Grass Valley empowers small operators to create high-end production

With a wide range of features packed in a 2RU mainframe, Kula AV delivers the largest IO count in its switcher class, with 40 video and 80 audio inputs. Controlled via a 19-inch Kula panel and Mav audio module, the entire system can be easily loaded into a fly-pack for transportation to rental or ENG locations.

“By bringing the power and capability of multiple systems into a compact form factor that will fit in even the most confined spaces, we allow smaller production operations to meet the demand,” said Mark Hilton, vice-president of live production at Grass Valley.

Built with FormatFusion3, Kula AV auto-senses and seamlessly converts any combination of SD, HD and 1080p to the required output for unrestricted mixing of video signal types across all inputs and outputs.

The integrated audio-mixing capabilities include embedding/de-embedding, clean and quiet audio switching, and audio-follow-video mode for simplified control.

Boromy Ugh, vice-president of product marketing at Grass Valley, told APB at IBC2019: “User experience is becoming a defining factor for the delivery of live content, and Kula AV enables clients to deliver a comparable user experience akin to the big production house.”
