Mediatec Broadcast Sweden Grass Valley cameras and switchers cover the event for SVT and the world Case Study

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.

Manhattan Center Productions Juggling multiple clients with Kayenne makes good business sense Case Study

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.
