Loading a "Classic" Kayenne/Karrera Show to a Kayenne/Karrera K-Frame Application Notes (GVB-1-0145B-EN-AN) File size: 679.6 KB, posted Feb 28 2019 With tight schedules and increased production requirements, getting shows set-up and moved from location to location in a fast and efficient manner is critical. This document is a guide to help accomplish such a migration when a show was originated with a classic Kayenne/Karrera frame and needs to implemented on a newer K-Frame.
High Dynamic Range 4K UHD Gets Full Test Run at the Alpine Ski World Cup in Italy Case Study (GVB-2-0699A-EN-CS) File size: 457.9 KB, posted May 03 2019 Global Production decided to also commit two LDX 86N cameras to shooting at 6X speed in order to create exciting images in super-slow motion. Grass Valley followed these sporting events, technically supporting Global Production, by providing spare equipment and giving support in the management of native live HDR.
The production included a Grass Valley 2 M/E Karrera and Kayenne K-Frame with 192 in and 96 out in 3G, configured in 2.5 M/E 4K UHD with HDR.
CHALLENGE: Days before Thanksgiving 2015, a lightning strike forced Trinity Fellowship to replace a key production switcher that failed due to a loss of cooling and extreme overheating. Trinity Fellowship, a church with over 13,000 members, relies on its broadcast center for content shown on seven campuses.
SOLUTION: Grass Valley collaborated with the church's equipment dealer, organizing a complete proposal with revisions in less than 24 hours. The church then issued a purchase order for a 4.5 M/E Kayenne K-Frame Video Production Center switcher in less than a week, and during the service on Dec. 4, 2015 only 11 days later the switcher debuted.
BENEFITS: The Kayenne K-Frame immediately improved E-MEM timeline automation and offered many other workflow and visual production technique enhancements.
Essentially starting with a clean slate, Marvin Williams, Director of Video Engineering & Operations at MCP, said he knew they needed the latest video switching technology and that it had to be future-proof. It also had to come with a small footprint as rack real estate was at a premium, considering the equipment used by the other studios MCP operates from the same facility. With all of this (and more) in mind, Williams and his team chose a new Grass Valley® Kayenne® Video Production Center switcher for Studio 1's new state-of-the-art production control room.
Lyon Video: Putting Flexibility First Case Study (GVB-1-0146B-EN-CS) File size: 1.3 MB, posted Feb 28 2019 For its latest, state-of-the-art mobile production trucks, named LYON-11 and LYON-12, Columbus, Ohio-based Lyon Video wanted to make sure that HD format flexibility was front and center. That's important because it works with a variety of clients that all have different needs and requirements. They could be producing a 1080i shoot for NBC Sports one day and a 720p production for ABC/ESPN the next, so their equipment must support both.
To further support its strategy of flexibility, Lyon Video wanted to be able to work in whatever venue their clients needed them at, regardless of whether it was pre-wired with triax of fiber. To that end, Lyon Video began testing the Grass Valley® 3G Transmission system in 2011 for ESPN and the University of Texas' Longhorn Network located in Austin.

HDR and the Broadcast Environment: Better Pixels Create Better Content Whitepaper by Chris Merrill, Product Marketing & Klaus Weber, Principal, Camera Solutions and Technology, (GVB-1-0661B-EN-WP) File size: 1.3 MB, posted Feb 28 2019 HDR is generally recognized as the next big thing in content delivery with an immediate perceivable benefit for the consumer. The ability to produce HDR content in HD removes the significant bandwidth requirements needed for HDR in 4K UHD and can be more quickly deployed.
HDR is shaping up to be the next major advancement in the viewing experience, with consumers praising the image improvements and broadcasters working to find the best options for delivery. Grass Valley's HDR solutions allow its customers to choose the best approach for their specific production needs today, whether that be HD, 4K UHD or both, plus an easy upgrade path for tomorrow's demands with GV-eLicenses as production requirements change.
This dramatically impacts broadcast media producers and distributors as workflows that were once facility-centric are now expected to seamlessly address and integrate with "Software-as-a-Service" (SaaS) or "Platform-as-a-Service" (PaaS) online cloud-based solutions. Systems for transcoding, targeted advertising, ad decisioning, rights management, social media, content management and online video all need to be considered for content delivery.
There are significant challenges facing broadcasters as they drive
both local and network facilities to maximize efficiencies and drive
throughput to address the demands of digital media.
