White Papers

Grass Valley technologies are easy to understand with a variety of white papers that we produce on specific products or specific applications available within those products.

Truck Challenge White Paper

The purpose of this study was to measure the technological challenges of mobile TV production. Why measure problems? The reason is simple. If we can better understand the problems that most frequently occur during a mobile production, we will be better able to anticipate those challenges and counter them. Or, as the father of modern management, Peter Drucker, once said, "That which gets measured, improves."

The study targeted high-end sports production professionals involved in mobile production. Our goal was to aggregate the experience of hundreds of people who work in, or manage, mobile productions, and arrive at a universal truth about which operational areas are most challenging. We interviewed industry experts from mobile production companies both large and small, and surveyed professionals at broadcast and cable networks, as well as mobile production companies.

GV STRATUS and DIVArchive Archiving Workflows Application Note

An important part of the digital media production lifecycle is the ability to archive high-resolution assets in a permanent archive system. This mandates that workflow orchestration platforms are seamlessly extended with content archiving capabilities. The openness of the GV STRATUS application facilitates a choice of integration with mainstream archiving solutions, including the DIVArchive (Front Porch Digital) platform, offering a robust toolset and efficient archiving workflows.

A result of long-standing collaboration between Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, and Front Porch Digital, the unified GV STRATUS/K2 and DIVArchive platforms offer a complete toolset to efficiently archive and restore content between Grass Valley K2 storage and archive systems managed via Front Porch Digital DIVArchive. This application note provides a user perspective on how to employ the combined GV STRATUS/K2 and DIVArchive archiving workflows.

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.
