The Path to IP
It’s not a matter of if
IP connectivity will affect your operation. It's a matter of when... and how
NAB 2015 marked the debut of Grass Valley's Glass-to-Glass IP solution
that includes a wide range of products that support video-over-IP connectivity across all the key stages of production, from cameras to servers and switchers to multiviewers, and paves the road to an IP migration that continues to support SDI along the way.
Grass Valley's IP solution offers an open platform that simplifies the transition to IP by supporting commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) third-party IP switches and routers controlled by familiar broadcast control systems, saving tons of valuable time and expense. The operational advantages of IP technology simply offer better return on investment, as you can leverage your current SDI infrastructure with no new equipment learning curve affecting workflow.
An IP infrastructure can help deliver more than you've ever thought possible. Targeted advertising. Automated multiplatform media distribution. Scalable, bandwidth capacity busting, signal throughput operations. All leading to more compelling content that wins viewers.
An example of how some of Grass Valley's "Glass-to-Glass" IP solutions can be integrated into a live production workflow and infrastructure. 4K Realities
4K. UHD. Ultra high-def. Regardless of what you call it, it's in your future... because it will be in your viewers' homes (and mobile devices).
4K offers viewers stunning quality and a more immersive television experience. It's an electronic window to the world, with quality that viewers have never seen. One of the lessons learned during the transition from SD to HD was that "content is king"... and it still is. But that content in 4K can drive viewer loyalty and engagement to an entirely new level - especially as affordable 4K TV sets enter the marketplace. And that drives advertising revenue.
Best of all, with Grass Valley 4K production and post solutions, you can shoot and produce 4K today as easily as you do HD, with solutions that take your images from camera to switcher to router to storage. You also have the ability to switch between HD and 4K formats for the ultimate in flexibility, knowing you have 4K when you need it.
Any 6X or 4K recorded content can be accessed by any K2 Dyno replay controller and used with replay, playlist, or DynoZoom functions. The amazing DynoZoom capability allows replay controllers to pan and zoom into a portion of the picture where the story is unfolding to get even closer to the action.
