Grass Valley has released the latest in its like of K-Frame production switchers.
The new GV K-Frame X Video Processing Engine adds all SDI, IP and mixed SDI/IP board configurations. The company also noted that there is no loss of I/O density or production creativity when switching between these formats.
The latest solution is designed for companies requiring both IP and SDI signal sources in a high-end performance processing engine. Grass Valley stated that it offers “unlimited flexibility” between SDI and IP sources while leveraging the “enormous creativity” afforded by 9 M/Es.
The product boasts both compressed via TICO and uncompressed 4K along with HDR support. The full complement of I/O board options has been designed to support both IP and SDI (capable of 12 Gbps) connections in its 15 RU.
“GV K-Frame X allows broadcasters to move into the IP environment without totally disrupting their creative production processes or their teams, as it requires little to no additional equipment training,” said Greg Huttie, vice president of switchers, Grass Valley.
“Not only can the ‘X’ be used with any Grass Valley switcher panel, customers can also leverage our trademark platform-wide convenience - any shows created on any K-Frame switcher can be saved and shared among other switchers to maintain a broadcaster’s look and feel.”
