GV STRATUS Newsroom Bundles
Modular Video Production & Content Management Toolset

There's a reason why more than 200 GV STRATUS systems are in use all over the world — it makes getting productions to air easier and faster than ever before...especially news.

GV STRATUS Newsroom Bundles bring the power of GV STRATUS to smaller news operations, delivering the full resources of the newsroom to the field, so that producers can get stories to air faster. This gives you the opportunity to engage viewers faster than ever before, with compelling reporting and fully edited, ready-to-air packages.

Based on the tight integration between GV STRATUS and the EDIUS NLE platform, and a unique and highly optimized hybrid editing workflow, journalists can mix and move low-resolution and high-resolution assets — including so-called “wild files” from citizen journalists — across multiple sites, and perform full editing in the field with EDIUS Workgroup, included as standard in all GV STRATUS Newsroom configurations. Because proxy files are used extensively and intelligently, there is no need for complex SAN configurations (although you can, of course, scale up at any time).

GV STRATUS Newsroom Bundles are available in three configurations:

  • GV STRATUS Newsroom Express — 2 bidirectional I/Os, 600 GB storage (based on K2 Solo 3G portable media server). Supports 15 GV STRATUS clients, including 10 proxy editors and 1 high-resolution (up to 50 Mb/s) editor that can be directly connected to the K2 Solo 3G server.
  • GV STRATUS Newsroom Pro — 4 bidirectional I/Os, 8 TB storage (based on K2 Summit 3G Transmission Client). Supports 15 GV STRATUS clients, including 10 proxy editors and 1 high-resolution (up to 50 Mb/s) editor that can be directly connected to the K2 Summit 3G server.
  • GV STRATUS Newsroom Elite — 4 bidirectional I/Os, 20 TB storage (based on K2 Summit 3G Transmission Client and K2 Central TX shared storage). Supports 20 GV STRATUS clients, including 15 proxy editors and up to 4 high-resolution (up to 50 Mb/s) editors which can be directly connected to the K2 Central shared storage.

Wide Area News

The Need for Speed…

Consider a traditional news workflow. You send a crew into the field to shoot as much useful footage as they can, and they then rush back to the newsroom to view, write and edit the story, maybe after first waiting for the content to be transferred to your production server. It's labor-intensive, costly and very, very linear. Why are you still working like that?
