Kayenne Video Production Center
The World's Most Powerful Switcher

Kayenne with K-Frame brings the highest level of performance available to live productions with the innovative features and upgradability only from Grass Valley. You can mount the unique Kayenne control flat or in a banked curve, and configure Kayenne with full 3G 1080p50/60 HD support. And its familiar design makes it ideal for environments where freelancers are employed. When needed, this 3G 1080p-capable switcher can adapt to offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to 9 M/Es with six keyers in every full M/E.

K-Frame:

  • K-Frame Standard Frame:
    • Up to 192 inputs and 96 outputs
    • Up to 9 M/Es, accessible across two suites – by using DoubleTake this may be increased to 18 virtual M/Es
    • Up to 16 iDPMs (integrated Digital Picture Manipulators), assigned as either floating iDPMs or within an eDPM at user’s discretion
  • K-Frame Compact Frame:
    • Up to 80 inputs and 48 outputs
    • Up to 5 M/Es – by using DoubleTake this may be increased to 10 virtual M/Es

  • Integrated macro editor allows users to edit macros online or offline on a PC running the menu application
  • Every M/E has six keyers with standard keying modes including chromakey, two frame stores per keyer, and every keyer in a full M/E can use the floating iDPM system
  • Optional DoubleTake (split M/E mode) effectively increases the number of M/Es and adds flexibility to Suites operation while FlexiKey programmable clean feed mode supports separately programmable configurations of keyers from four M/E outputs
  • 2D DPMs (resizers) on every keyer, with 6 pairs of 2D DPMs per M/E so the iDPMs can be used for more complex digital effects

  • Optional integrated external ClipStore provides multiple channels of video/key pairs for up to 10+ hours of nonvolatile video/key/audio clip content
  • 999 macros with many new ways to recall macros from the panel
  • 1,000 E-MEM registers with Define E-MEM for fine control in creation and editing of effects
  • Optional M/E Previewer provides a method to check and monitor any input to an M/E
  • VDCP Ethernet connection for stadium applications
