TV Bahia Implements Grass Valley's K2 Dyno Replay System with RT Software's tOG Telestration Feature
MONTREAL, August 6, 2014 — Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, today announces that TV Bahia, a regional broadcaster in Bahia, Brazil, has purchased four K2 Dyno Replay Systems that include the recently incorporated tOG-Sports telestration option from RT Software. TV Bahia will use the powerful K2 Dyno systems for all sports-related broadcasts and cultural events. TV Bahia used the powerful new system for recent events such as the Salvador Carnival and Summer Festival 2014.
"Grass Valley's K2 Dyno is the most comprehensive, easy-to-learn replay system on the market, and we're excited about the capabilities it will bring to our broadcasts," commented Romildo Fausto, engineering manager at TV Bahia. "There are so many features of the K2 Dyno that we favor, such as its ability to create highlights and replays incredibly fast. And now with the new telestration feature, we can manage effects right on the touchscreen rather than having to move from computer to replay system, which saves our staff a lot of time."
Grass Valley's K2 Dyno includes a highly intuitive touchscreen interface and increased content/metadata integration. It supplies replay operators of all levels with a comprehensive and simple toolset that provides logging, content management and even full craft editing capabilities, so that operators can produce replays and highlight packages seamlessly and on the fly.
K2 Dyno's integration with tOG-Sports telestration establishes new levels of creativity and efficiency for those working in live production, especially sports. Managed from the K2 Dyno touchscreen interface, replay operators can deliver compelling content to viewers using split screens, key frame—tracking zoom and spot zoom, as well as various other illustration tools such as traditional lines, circles and shaded regions.
"TV Bahia needed a solution that is prepared for the demands of the future and offers a high level of integration and functionality. That's exactly what we deliver with K2 Dyno," said Cristiano Barbieri, key account manager, Brazil, Grass Valley. "The K2 Dyno is extremely versatile, as it can be used for ingest, editing, clip, store and replay. With the optional tOG feature, its capabilities are expanded, making it an even greater value for those working in live-action productions."
