Today is an exciting day for us at Grass Valley. Belden Inc. announced its intent to bring Grass Valley on board and combine it with Miranda, a leading provider of hardware and software solutions for the television broadcast, cable, satellite, and IPTV industry. Grass Valley will remain the name of the combined businesses.

For over 50 years, Grass Valley has built its reputation as an innovative leader in the broadcast industry.
