Creative Technology Group: Getting Creative With T2 At The 2010 Detroit Auto Show Case Study

Creative Technology is an internationally recognized professional audio visual staging services provider with locations in the US, UK, Germany, Dubai, China, and Singapore. They have worked with many of the major automobile manufacturers around the world to help announce new products in the most imaginative way. Along with all of the exotic cars and prototype vehicles on display at the annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) convention, held in Detroit, the event is also renown for its sophisticated live multimedia presentations that vie for attendees' attention.

To automatically play back pre-recorded video on large screen displays at the 2010 NAIAS convention at Detroit's Cobo Hall in January, Creative Technology used a unique, file-based digital disk recorder—the T2 intelligent digital disk recorder (iDDR) from Grass Valley® to drive numerous high-definition video screens in support of the recurring live presentations.

Māori Television Improves Productivity With Grass Valley Case Study

When it comes to the production technology it uses, Māori Television understands the value of quality. That's why they selected Grass Valley products and systems for their major facility upgrade solution. Grass Valley's reliability, operational longevity, and adaptability just made good financial sense. With careful planning and expert help from Grass Valley system integration engineers, a comprehensive facility upgrade was designed.

The first phase successfully replaced Māori Television's aging central routing switcher with a new Grass Valley Trinix® NXT without affecting on-air or in-house operational performance. The new technology implementation employed includes a GV STRATUS™ media workflow application framework, a series of K2 Summit® production clients, and multiple seats of EDIUS® multiformat nonlinear editors—all connected to a K2 SAN. Māori Television also uses its two K2 Dyno Replay Systems integrated into the advanced news and general production environment.

Takenaka: The T2 iDDR Takes Center Stage At Live Events Where High-Definition Video Plays A Starring Role Case Study

Takenaka offers a unique brand of event staging—called LiveTechnical—which uses state-of-the-art technology to create mind-blowing visual extravaganzas. The Star Festival 2009, an event co-produced by Takenaka in Osaka, was one of their most spectacular events of the year, perfectly demonstrating their technical and creative prowess in this field. When planning this prestigious event, the LiveTechnical team wanted an exciting stage show enriched by more high-definition imagery than they'd ever used before. They wanted to use video in new and exciting ways.

In addition to providing crystal-clear HD video and rock-solid performance, the solution also had to be easy to use and compatible with the other equipment they were using. Grass Valley T2 fitted the bill perfectly. One of the key features of the T2 iDDR is its intuitive user interface. This meant that VJs at the event had live control over two independent HD playback channels. Compatibility with switchers, professional projectors, and other staging equipment is also no problem, thanks to HD-SDI connectivity.
