Hillsboro, Ore., October 3, 2013 — Grass Valley® is proud to announce that it is the recipient of two TVB Europe magazine 'Pick of IBC 2013' Awards for GV Director™ Nonlinear Live Production System in the 'Production' category, and EDIUS® 7 the latest version of its nonlinear video editing application in the 'Production and Infrastructure' category. TVB Europe, a leading magazine for broadcast technology in Europe, awards the most sophisticated and efficient innovations from the IBC show floor.
"The show was packed with more than 1,400 exhibitors, many of whom had new products on display," said Fergal Ringrose, Editorial Director TVB Europe. "For those who couldn't make it to Amsterdam, or who just couldn't get to every stand, the combined teams of The IBC Daily and TVB Europe picked out the most interesting innovations - particularly those that could make broadcasters' lives easier and more efficient."
Introduced earlier this year, GV Director brings a new paradigm to live production workflows. Much more than a switcher, GV Director integrates video switching, multi-layer effects, animated graphics, multiviewer monitoring, and more all in a single, intuitive, and highly creative system. This reliable and robust purpose-built system replaces a number of separate devices reducing equipment costs while allowing users to quickly and easily create sophisticated live productions.
EDIUS 7 is an industry-leading solution for editors working on fast turn production in broadcast news, newsmagazine, and studio program content, as well as professional video editors working on organizational, documentary, and 4K theatrical productions. In addition to support for a wide range of Grass Valley hardware, EDIUS 7 is now open to third-party input and output hardware from Blackmagic Design and Matrox, with support for AJA Video Systems hardware scheduled for Q4 2013. This gives EDIUS users greater flexibility to edit anything, anywhere.
"We are honored that our latest enhancements have been recognized by such an esteemed panel of industry experts," commented Said Bacho, Senior Vice President, EMEA, Grass Valley. "We pride ourselves on creating products that are designed to revolutionize the way content is produced and delivered. These awards reflect our ongoing dedication to bringing the best innovations to the live production market. They further illustrate that GV Director and the recent launch of EDIUS 7 have been a winning success for us."
