Grass Valley Strengthens Presence in Italy with Opening of Rome Office
San Francisco, Calif., June 10, 2013 — In order to strengthen its presence in Italy, Grass Valley has established a new central office in the region's capital, Rome. The new office, which includes a state-of-the-art Solutions Center, reinforces Grass Valley's commitment to the Italian market and its customers.
The office combines sales, support, and administrative staff, as well as a demonstration room showing the latest Grass Valley solutions—including the innovative LDX Series™ software upgradable camera range, the GV STRATUS® nonlinear production platform, and many other offerings that support live production, news, and playout.
