KVVU (FOX5): Grass Valley Ignite Helps Sin City Station Increase Local News Case Study (GVB-1-0073B-EN-CS) File size: 1.1 MB, posted Mar 04 2019 In June 2009, when Meredith Corp. management decided to turn over the newscasts of KVVU (FOX5), the local FOX affiliate in Las Vegas, to an Ignite scalable automated production system from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, the move was met with a bit of apprehension.

"Two years later, we couldn't be happier with how well the system has performed and how easily our staff took to it and made our newscasts better," said Gary Prager, Production Manager at KVVU. "Because of the Ignite system, we are now able to do more than before we got the system an additional full hour of news."

The revolutionary and Emmy® Award-winning Ignite APC platform from Grass Valley is a powerful and agile software platform that enables single operators to create tighter, cleaner, more compelling live content while lowering OPEX costs associated with personnel and training.
