Brazilian television network TV Record will deploy a complete high-definition (HD) production system from Grass Valley for live and delayed coverage of this summer’s London-based sporting events. TV Record will set up a storage area network (SAN) based on Grass Valley K2 Summit media servers to facilitate a collaborative editing environment. This production workflow will feature numerous seats of Grass Valley’s Aurora Digital News Production (DNP) platform and EDIUS craft editing solutions. The huge project, to be supported by Grass Valley engineers on-site as part of a service agreement, includes the design and set-up of the online SAN with K2 Dyno Replay Systems able to control all SAN files for slow-motion playout. “We are very pleased that TV Record has committed all of its coverage of one of the world’s most watched television events to Grass Valley technologies and solutions,” said Jeff Rosica, executive vice president of Grass Valley. “They have continued to innovate and have put together one of the country’s most sophisticated newsgathering operations in the region. To think that they will now relocate much of that technology and work on-site in London, with the same capability, is remarkable.” The network will use the Grass Valley Aurora suite of file-based tools to ingest, edit, and play out content within a completely file-based, shared storage production environment. The Aurora HD DNP platform to be installed in London includes 10 Aurora Edit and seven EDIUS editing workstations attached to 1,450 hours of K2 Production storage. The network will also set up numerous Aurora Ingest, Scheduling, and Playout stations; more than 30 Ingest and 10 Playout channels with up to a dozen Grass Valley K2 Summit servers. www.grassvalley.com
