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.

Using IP to Solve the Multiformat (HD, 4K & HFR) Truck Challenge White paper

Broadcasters and content creators are scrambling to implement systems that produce live content with the newest technological advances beyond HD, including 1080p60 and 4K UHD. In addition, particularly in live sport programming, producers are employing more high frame rate (HFR) sources, which focus on the action and highlight the drama of live events. 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.

New Bay Media IP Migration White Paper

For the past three decades, the television industry has been dominated by two major technology transitions. The first, from analog to digital video signals, began in the 1980's and is now essentially complete — the methods used to deliver video to consumers have become almost exclusively digital, and professional production systems being sold today are based on digital technology. The second, from SD to HD, began about a decade later and has penetrated the television market to the extent that virtually all new professional equipment and services are designed to support HD resolution.

With both of these transitions nearly concluded, the television industry is now faced with two more technology upheavals: migrating from SDI to IP-based studio infrastructure, and upgrading video signals from HD to 4K/Ultra HD. Both of these technologies are poised to once again revolutionize the production and delivery of television content. But, just like the earlier technology migrations, the transitions to IP and 4K/UHD will take time, and each video facility will no doubt proceed at its own pace.
