K2 Summit Transmission Client
An Optimized Play-to-Air System That Fits Any Playout Application

The Grass Valley® K2 Summit® Transmission client is built for broadcast and distribution services using manual or traditional automation systems—with mission critical, 24/7/365 reliability.

When failure isn't an option: With complete peace of mind, you can get on with your job with dual data paths, an embedded real-time operating system, and Grass Valley's Emmy® Award-winning core video technology. And with built-in up/down/crossconversion capability with full AFD, migrating from SD to HD is worry-free. Want to stick with SD only? We've got you covered there too!

A size that's just right: The K2 Summit Transmission client comes with two bidirectional channels and two playout channels to give you the configuration variety you need—including two record and two playout to models with four playout channels.
