Grass Valley provides Service Agreements (SA) to cover the hardware and software within these systems, which most customers purchase as part of the system sale. However, the hardware parts in the systems cannot be warrantied beyond five years in a standard SA agreement, meaning many customer systems will now require their hardware components to be replaced to extend the life of their systems (and to stay under a Support Agreement).
