We're integrating standardized SMPTE 2022-6 IP support into every major product category we offer, so you can migrate to IP on your terms when it makes business sense for you. This includes cameras, switchers, routers, servers, replay and multiviewers. All while maintaining SDI support.
Enabling graceful broadcast-centric IP network scaling with a non-proprietary solution that supports vertically accurate switching.
IP MEANS AGILITY. It's the number one reason broadcasters are even considering a migration from SDI to IP. With the agility of IP, broadcasters will be setup to handle the growing needs of their broadcast plant today and, perhaps even more importantly, their ability to continue expanding easily in the future is assured.

NVISION Panel Series: Wide Range of Highly Adapted Panels for Superior Control Datasheet (GVB-1-0489D-EN-DS) File size: 3.6 MB, posted Apr 23 2018 The NVISION panel series from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, includes a wide range of highly adapted panels for superior control. The panel range includes informative and easy to use LCD relegendable panels, multidestination panels, multimode button per source panels, destination/source (XY) panels and the powerful RCP-200 smart panel. The NVISION panel series is the most comprehensive line of panels, meticulously designed to optimize various workflows for the fastest, error-free operations as well as accommodating tight budgets and restricted space requirements. Panels can be used with both the NV9000 and GV Convergent control systems.
"Glass-to-Glass" Video-over-IP Solution Datasheet (GVB-1-0124G-EN-DS) File size: 9.7 MB, posted Feb 27 2019 The broadcast industry’s first Glass-to-Glass IP solution for production studios and broadcast operations centers has been introduced by Grass Valley, a Belden Brand. Our solutions are “Glass-to-Glass” because they offer video-over-IP connectivity (SMPTE 2022-6) across all the key stages of production, from acquisition to control room monitoring. This spans cameras, routing, gateways plus control and monitoring, along with servers, production switching and multiviewers. TICO 4:1 visually lossless compression is also supported in our cameras and production switchers to enable 4K in both SDI and IP infrastructures.
Why Shaping Traffic at the Sender is Important Whitepaper by Chuck Meyer, Chief Technical Officer, Production, (GVB-1-0657B-EN-WP) File size: 1.3 MB, posted Mar 05 2019 To manage this risk in advance, broadcasters should consider how the buffers in the switch work and ensure that data senders behave in such a way that the buffers never become too full. This practice is known as sender traffic shaping. To ensure pre-compensating for this adverse effect is efficiently applied to IP, broadcasters must follow one rule: the network must be designed and managed for the desired traffic load.
Shaping sender traffic is important for system reliability, and it is equally important to consider its impact for low latency and jitter in live production systems. To ensure the optimal workflow and performance, use the proposed SMPTE 2110-21 standard as a way to design the system, and then verify this, as well as system performance requirements, with your router vendor.
Building an IP Fabric with Cisco Products Whitepaper by Chris Merrill, Senior Product Manager Infrastructure, Strategic Marketing
Alexandre Gagne, Senior Product Manager, Monitoring & Control, Strategic Marketing, (GVB-1-0620D-EN-WP) File size: 1.2 MB, posted Mar 05 2019 Cisco's IP fabric for media solution replaces what previously was the crosspoint section of an SDI router in live production studios with an IP-based infrastructure. The Cisco Nexus 9200/9300-EX platform switches in conjunction with the Cisco non-blocking multicast (NBM) algorithm (an intelligent traffic management algorithm) provide a reliable, scalable IP fabric for the broadcast industry. In addition, this IP fabric solution provides zero-drop multicast transport and support for PTP media profiles.
