Building an IP Fabric White Paper

Why Buy from Grass Valley?

An IP network for media is different from a standard IP network. The overall architecture of the system is different, and Cisco switches must be appropriately licensed and provisioned with the correct algorithms. Most Cisco resellers do not understand the requirements to create a non-blocking multicast system for media. Customers who wish to source their own switches without oversight from Grass Valley do so AT THEIR OWN RISK. Grass Valley will not be responsible for negotiating exchanges of network switches ordered by a customer that are inappropriately ordered or provisioned.

The ability to draw the audience into the emotion of a moment in sports, such as with a frown from a player or coach, has increased demand for these HFR capture and replay devices.
