    Morpheus Playout: Remote Operation Examples Application note

    There are several scenarios where broadcasters need to operate from a central facility and also be able to operate their remote, geographically spread systems. This is required in order to provide regionalized content, whether that includes program material or local commercial material. Being able to provide local commercial material is important so that local businesses are targeted and to maximize revenue from local advertisements. In the case of Managed Service Providers, it is sometimes desirable to provide customers the added value service to securely and remotely access playout operations to review the running playlist.

    GV STRATUS System Upgrades and Migrations Application Note

    GV STRATUS has been available to customers since 2011 and has been deployed in over 300 customer sites worldwide.

    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).

    This document explains the Server Upgrade Package options which Grass Valley can offer to customers from GV STRATUS v6.0 onwards.
