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.

Sky Racing Australia’s Sky Racing Takes Live Sports Production onto the STRATUS Platform Case Study

Among the services that Sky Racing offers both broadcasters and the wagering public in Australia is real-time thoroughbred, greyhound, and harness racing coverage aggregated from a large number of venues disparately located across the country and internationally. The aim of the presentation is to be clear and for it to be easily understood. Last year alone, it helped televise and stream online more than 83,000 races. To do this requires a vast amount of staff coordination and the most advanced live video production and distribution technology.

Carl Petch, Chief Engineer at Sky Racing, based in Frenchs Forrest (north Sydney), said with the ever-growing number of platforms—TV, Internet, and mobile—his staff has to support, the need for efficiency and fast turnaround times has never been stronger. To do this cost-effectively, the company has become the first commercial customer for the new Grass Valley® STRATUS™ software-based media workflow application framework that brings a number of Sky Racing’s content creation departments under the same graphical user interface.
