Māori Television Improves Productivity With Grass Valley Case Study

When it comes to the production technology it uses, Māori Television understands the value of quality. That's why they selected Grass Valley products and systems for their major facility upgrade solution. Grass Valley's reliability, operational longevity, and adaptability just made good financial sense. With careful planning and expert help from Grass Valley system integration engineers, a comprehensive facility upgrade was designed.

The first phase successfully replaced Māori Television's aging central routing switcher with a new Grass Valley Trinix® NXT without affecting on-air or in-house operational performance. The new technology implementation employed includes a GV STRATUS™ media workflow application framework, a series of K2 Summit® production clients, and multiple seats of EDIUS® multiformat nonlinear editors—all connected to a K2 SAN. Māori Television also uses its two K2 Dyno Replay Systems integrated into the advanced news and general production environment.

WGBH Getting Ignited and Finding Efficiency Along The Way Case Study

With the termination of federal Public Telecommunications Facilities Program (PTFP) grants, many local PBS member stations like WGBH in Boston—whose award-winning programs are widely viewed nationwide and around the world—have had to look carefully at what they spend in order to get the most value. It's a tough challenge because, even with less money, the station must continue to achieve its mission of serving the community with locally focused educational programming.

One of the last PTFP grants made before the program ended was awarded to WGBH to help continue its mission. In early 2011, WGBH decided to migrate its production capabilities to an Ignite® automated production system from Grass Valley®. The system allows a single operator to take on several roles required during production.

Before making any decisions on a new switcher, the engineering staff at Nine Network Australia conducted the proper due diligence and researched four other manufacturers' products, just to be sure they were making the right decision.

Gary Newnham, Video Switcher Director at Nine Network Australia, sat down and played with the new Kayenne Video Production Center at several trade shows and it had instant visual appeal for him. With its RGB buttons, OLED displays, and ergonomic design, it looked ready to take on the 21st century.

Kathryn O’Leary: EDIUS in News Case Study

As a veteran news editor on staff at an NBC affiliate station in the central New England area, Kathryn O'Leary likes to work fast. When there's a breaking story to tell, she doesn't have time for technology that bogs her down or makes her wait. That's why she's a big fan of the Grass Valley® EDIUS® nonlinear editing system.

When her station's news department made the migration to nonlinear editing in the spring of 2008, they chose the latest version of EDIUS primarily because of the system's affordability and real-time performance. The EDIUS software also integrated well with the station's newly installed news production system.
