GV STRATUS for Reduced Scale Media Production Requirements Application Note

GV STRATUS, the nonlinear media production tools application from Grass Valley, A Belden Brand, offers exceptional flexibility when scaling to the size and complexity of a broad range of media production systems. Teamed with K2 series of media servers and SAN storage systems, GV STRATUS can be configured to meet the demands of even the largest broadcast and production facilities. Equally, GV STRATUS lends itself extremely well to deployments in smaller scale environments where large amounts of storage are not required, but speed-to-air and flexibility of distribution are of the essence.

In settings that do not require K2 SAN storage, GV STRATUS can be deployed in a variety of configurations with standalone K2 Summit and K2 Solo media servers, offering economical, yet powerful and highly adaptable systems.
