Grass Valley launches SDI/IP solutions for cameras, switchers and replay

New products benefit from latest in IP and 4K UHD technology, and are ideally suited for live productions

Grass Valley has announced three new SDI/IP production solutions, which it says benefit from the very latest in IP and 4K UHD technology.

The three solutions are:

  • GV K-Frame XP: Operates in any format, from HD to 4K UHD 2160p, and offers what Grass Valley says is the largest I/O footprint in the industry with 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. Show files are compatible on all K-Frame engines and all Kayenne, Karrera and Korona control surfaces can drive the new XP.
  • LDX 150: New camera offers triple speed UHD with global shutter and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) acquisition on a NativeIP backbone. Company says the new Xenios imager, paired with the global shutter, means best sensitivity with increased sharpness in fine structures and life-like images, a wide dynamic range in HDR, an improved signal-to-noise ratio and additional depth of field, even in low light conditions. Also offers built-in JPEG XS compression that can be natively streamed over IP with no additional CCUs or server boxes.
  • LiveTouch 2000: Next generation of Grass Valley’s replay and highlights system. The latest version is an ultra-high density video server that offers up to 12 UHD / 24 HD channels in 3 RU. Suited for studio and sports applications.

“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,” says Marco Lopez, general manager of Live Production at Grass Valley.

“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. We are extremely proud to bring these latest enhancements to market and look forward to the live productions they will be part of.”
