The Kayenne ClipStore from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, incorporates K2 media server technology by embedding either a 4-channel K2 Summit or a 2-channel K2 Solo. Each of these server channels records and plays a video and key pair. The ClipStore video and key are kept in one single file (not two files) so that video, key and audio are always synchronized without the need to gang channels.

Lyon Video: Putting Flexibility First Case Study
File size: 930.2 KB, posted Sep 15 2014
For its latest, state-of-the-art mobile production trucks, named LYON-11 and LYON-12, Columbus, Ohio-based Lyon Video wanted to make sure that HD format flexibility was front and center. That's important because it works with a variety of clients that all have different needs and requirements. They could be producing a 1080i shoot for NBC Sports one day and a 720p production for ABC/ESPN the next, so their equipment must support both.
To further support its strategy of flexibility, Lyon Video wanted to be able to work in whatever venue their clients needed them at, regardless of whether it was pre-wired with triax of fiber. To that end, Lyon Video began testing the Grass Valley® 3G Transmission system in 2011 for ESPN and the University of Texas' Longhorn Network located in Austin.
Manhattan Center Productions Juggling multiple clients with
Kayenne makes good business sense Case Study
File size: 812.0 KB, posted Sep 15 2014
Manhattan Center Productions (MCP), a full-service production facility in New York City, sought to rebuild their main high-definition (HD) production studio—Studio 1. After their last full-time clients had completed their production schedule, a decision was made to completely rebuild the studio and all new live production technologies were installed.
Essentially starting with a clean slate, Marvin Williams, Director of Video Engineering & Operations at MCP, said he knew they needed the latest video switching technology and that it had to be future-proof. It also had to come with a small footprint as rack real estate was at a premium, considering the equipment used by the other studios MCP operates from the same facility. With all of this (and more) in mind, Williams and his team chose a new Grass Valley® Kayenne® Video Production Center switcher for Studio 1's new state-of-the-art production control room.

Wedding days are always special, but if you are the heir to a throne, you can expect even more attention. In June of 2010, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden married Daniel Westling. It was the first royal wedding in Sweden for more than 30 years, and interest was high, at home and abroad.
For the wedding day itself, three of Mediatec's largest, double-expanding OB vans were parked outside the Royal Palace. At the heart of each was a Grass Valley® Kayenne® Video Production Center switcher, bringing all the feeds together and giving the directors the creative freedom to add multiple layers of graphics and effects, as required. Apart from some remote cameras in tight spaces in the church, all the pictures came from Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite cameras.

Trinity Fellowship, US www.tfc.org
CHALLENGE: Days before Thanksgiving 2015, a lightning strike forced Trinity Fellowship to replace a key production switcher that failed due to a loss of cooling and extreme overheating.

BENEFITS: The Kayenne K-Frame immediately improved E-MEM timeline automation and offered many other workflow and visual production technique enhancements.

The Changing Dynamics of Digital Media Publishing, Live Streaming and Social Interactivity “BRIEF” White Paper
by Alex Holtz, Director, Segment Marketing & Digital Media Solutions
Régis André, Senior Director Product Management, Digital Media Workflows, (GVB-1-0479A-EN-WP) File size: 1.6 MB, posted Nov 12 2014
Digital media ecosystems are transitioning at the speed of light to meet consumer demand for video consumption anywhere, anytime and on any device.
This dramatically impacts broadcast media producers and distributors as workflows that were once facility-centric are now expected to seamlessly address and integrate with "Software-as-a-Service" (SaaS) or "Platform-as-a-Service" (PaaS) online cloud-based solutions. Systems for transcoding, targeted advertising, ad decisioning, rights management, social media, content management and online video all need to be considered for content delivery.
There are significant challenges facing broadcasters as they drive
both local and network facilities to maximize efficiencies and drive
throughput to address the demands of digital media.
