AnySpeed K2 Dyno White Paper

Replay is quickly becoming the most important tool in a live sporting event. Producers require every possible advantage to tell the best stories and keep viewers engaged. Historically, the industry has faced many challenges in embracing high frame-rate camera systems until Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, introduced the LDX XtremeSpeed (XS) 6X super slowmotion camera and its counterpart, the K2 Dyno Replay System with the K2 Dyno S Replay Controller.

K2 Dyno's AnySpeed takes high-speed recording and playout to the next level with control previously unavailable in any system, enabling the full use of the dynamic range of playback speeds. The AnySpeed algorithm is now included in all 6x SSM K2 Dyno S software releases.

The Benefits of Grass Valley HQX White Paper

This paper discusses the Intermediate Codec solutions available from several vendors which are then compared in terms of picture quality, flexibility and suitability for use with graphics as well as video. In like-for-like tests, the Grass Valley HQX Intermediate Codec offers comparable picture quality and is shown to have superior multi-generational performance. When combined with frame rate and resolution flexibility, plus built-in alpha channel support, this paper supports the conclusion that HQX is the best choice for creative editing.

Comparing Single-Speed and Dual-Speed Acquisition for Slow-Motion Replays Versus Triple-Speed Super Slow-Motion

Triple-speed super slow-motion acquisition delivers a completely different level of performance for slow-motion replays when compared to single-speed and dual-speed acquisition. The various approaches address different production requirements, and in many cases a combination of them are used during the same production. This document looks at the differences between the different types of slowmotion acquisition methods.

Applying Superior Performance 3 Gb/s in a Practical Manner White Paper

Signal infrastructure that is installed today must be ready for 3 Gb/s transport, even if there are no immediate plans to exploit it for rates above 1.5 Gb/s HD-SDI. However, the data rate increase from 1.5 Gb/s to 3 Gb/s has created some technical challenges that must be overcome for signal infrastructure investments to retain their value over the long term.

Comparing Triple-Speed Super Slow-Motion Camera Systems with Ultra Slow-Motion Camera Systems White Paper

Triple-speed and ultra-speed camera systems do not compete with each other. Both systems address different production requirements, and in many cases are both used during the same production. This document looks at the differences between the two types of slow-motion systems.

Evaluating A Playout System White Paper

Live event production requires a sophisticated replay system that can fully leverage today’s file-based infrastructures to deliver more than just “record and play.” Replay systems should take full advantage of IT-centric open systems, being able to run on stand-alone servers or complex SAN systems with advanced metadata capabilities, while also being easy to use by operators.

Considerations When Evaluating a Playout System Implementation White Paper

Choices for a playout solution have usually fallen between implementing a traditional automation system that links together a complex collection of many devices from different providers, or a basic single-channel box consisting of a standard PC with cards. There is now a viable alternative that brings a file-based, networked, and scalable approach to the task of well managed, consolidated delivery of on-air content that includes video, audio, secondary media, and graphics.
