GV Korona K-Frame V-series
Video Production Center

The new GV Korona K-Frame V-series systems are specifically designed for low- and mid-range broadcast and media applications, where compromising on performance is not an option. GV Korona K-Frame V-series systems are available in two system packages, starting at 16x8 with 1 or 2 M/Es and a complement of licenses, for exceptional value and incredible power.

The small footprint of the GV Korona K-Frame V-series is ideal for smaller stations, sub-studios, mobile environments, corporate, sports venues, educational, government and houses of worship production facilities. With its modular design for simple scalability and serviceability to its handling SD/HD and the ability to produce in 3G/1080p with no loss of functionality and 4K UHD with a simple license upgrade, it is ready for anything.
