Entering the UHD Universe

Grass Valley has a host of new products on show, from Ultra HD camera and replay systems, switchers and NLEs, to cost-effective IP and hybrid routing, playout and HD cameras.

The flexible new LDX 86 Universe UHD camera can switch to 6x HD for ultra slow motion. It combines with the new K2 Dyno Universe Replay System to offer HD, UHD or extreme-speed acquisition and replay.

Previously, UHD replay required twice the servers, double the rack space and twice the replay operators compared to HD, but the K2 Dyno Universe requires neither more operators or more rack space.

It comes in 4RU and 6RU sizes, both 6x HD/UHD switchable, using new solid-state shared storage for improved performance.

The Focus 70 Live is a new entry-level single format HD camera offering support for 1080i50/59.94 or 720p50/59.94.

It’s based on LDX Series technology, with three digital Xensium-FT CMOS imagers with global shutter.

Also on show, version 8 of Edius sports a refreshed GUI, new workflow clip management and accelerated 4K H.264 playback.

It is the first NLE to support Canon’s new XF-AVC video format, as used by the C300 Mark II and XC10.

As part of the company’s Glass-to-Glass IP system, the GV Convergent SDN makes routing IP video and audio appear the same as routing SDI, providing transparent control, while the Nvision 8500 Hybrid Routing is designed to enable easy transition from SDI to IP infrastructures.

The new iTX Integrated Playout Platform version 2.6 delivers simulcast for greater scalability, is better adapted for live content, and provides enhanced automation of ingest.

The modular Kayenne K-Frame switchers deliver full multiformat support, including UHD, and can offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to nine M/Es with six full keyers in every M/E.
