Transparent management of SDI and IP infrastructure
  • GV Convergent works with commercial off the shelf (COTS) switches
  • Uses industry Audio/Video over IP standards such as SMPTE ST 2022-6
  • Works transparently in an SDI/IP environment
Faster configuration and efficient operation
  • Incorporates intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), which is platform agnostic and can run on tablets and other devices, extending the capacity for configuration and troubleshooting the system from portable devices
  • The software optimizes the data entry and navigation using touchscreen and gesture features for enhanced user experience and greater usability
  • Glitch-free configuration updates are done in real time, with zero downtime
  • Provides multiple, simultaneous, administrator data entry points, which are very useful in dynamic environments such as trucks

Mission critical and scalable architecture

  • Completely integrated configuration and distributed control environment allows easy and dynamic sharing of configurations and data, enabling easy scalability from small to very large facilities handling thousands of I/Os
  • Distributed services provide robust and efficient redundancy, leading to zero down time and glitch free failover impact

Unified control system*

  • Advanced tally system
  • Tielines and bandwidth management
  • Direct control of IP endpoints
  • SDI router control system

Software Defined Networking*

  • Bandwidth link capacity management
  • Parallel support of SDN and IGMP
  • Security supervision
  • Redundant IP infrastructure management

Benefits

  • Ease into IP   
  • Hide network complexity from your operators
  • One intuitive common and familiar interface for your SDI and IP workflows
  • Add IP to your facility, maintaining familiar interfaces and workflows, eliminating re-training

*Note: Inquire regarding availability.

GV Convergent is based on open protocols, standards and platforms, encouraging interoperability, and has been designed to be infrastructure agnostic, working with commercial off the shelf (COTS) IP switches as well as SDI routers from Grass Valley and other manufacturers. The system works with a wide variety of hardware and software panels, commonly used today, as well as platform agnostic GUI interfaces. Switching is controlled either by software defined networking (SDN) or via IP endpoint control.

Broadcast Data Center Datasheet

Grass Valley's Vision for the Broadcast Plant of the Future

Enabling graceful broadcast-centric IP network scaling with a non-proprietary solution that supports vertically accurate switching.

IP MEANS AGILITY. It's the number one reason broadcasters are even considering a migration from SDI to IP. With the agility of IP, broadcasters will be setup to handle the growing needs of their broadcast plant today and, perhaps even more importantly, their ability to continue expanding easily in the future is assured.
