Ignite Highlights Video

Chapter 1 – Introduction
Chapter 2 – Setup
Chapter 3 – Katalyst Panel
Chapter 4 – Pre-Production
Chapter 5 – MOP
Chapter 6 – Live Show Production

  • Leader in unscripted and breaking news
  • Ignite PT: New Ignite vertical playlist supports dynamic change in the rundown directly from Ignite — there’s no need to go to the NRCS to make changes
  • MOP (Media Object Portal) processes and filters changes that occur during live productions, giving visibility to what and where a change has occurred
  • Fully and partially redundant options
  • Templates (Ignite IQ): Reduces the size and complexity of your event library
  • Third-party device control is direct and native, no other applications required
  • Audio control mimics the way an audio operator would control an audio console
  • Make last-minute adjustments to audio levels on Katalyst or directly in the Ignite UI — there’s no need to go to the NRCS to make changes
  • Supports MOS and has an Active X plugin
  • NRCS support: AP (ENPS), iNews, Octopus and Dalet, while also sup­porting no NRCS if desired
  • Production panels: Any sized Grass Valley K-Frame can be used either with a Grass Valley switcher panel or without a Grass Valley switcher panel when using our intuitive KSP touchscreen switcher control appli­cation
  • Supports Windows 64-bit operating systems
  • DMP: Easily and seamlessly produce content for web and mobile plat­forms via Ignite that enables: 
    • Live streaming story embargo for rights management of syndicated content
    • Live streaming that supports unique streams to regions, syndicated sites, specific platforms or to individuals
    • Auto Story Segmentation that enables the entire story — Intro, Pack­age, Live Shot and on Camera Tag to be automatically published during a live production to web and mobile
    • Pre-production story publication without the need for Ignite
