Grass Valley Equips Canal Judicial with News Production Solutions for Improved Workflow

GV STRATUS, EDIUS and K2 Summit servers offer flexibility as Canal Judicial expands its news programming

MONTREAL, February 27, 2018 — Canal Judicial provides viewers in Mexico with a firsthand look at the news from the country's Supreme Court. With dozens of live cases and educational programs being broadcast each day, the channel needed solutions that could expand with its growing content demands. GV STRATUS Video Production and Content Management Systems, EDIUS Workgroup 8 Nonlinear Editing Software, K2 10G RAID Storage systems and K2 Summit 3G Transmission Clients from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, will efficiently manage Canal Judicial's current and future production workflows.

GV STRATUS Express and GV STRATUS Elite HR help the network keep up with its fast-paced judicial programming and manage multiple news production workflows quickly and efficiently since users can tailor the solution's production tools based on function. GV STRATUS efficiently handles the entire content creation and delivery process across multiple digital media platforms, and the video production and content management system includes full integration with EDIUS, the most versatile and fastest nonlinear editing software available. Both in the courtroom and in the studio, EDIUS Workgroup 8 offers more formats and more resolutions in real-time, providing the ability to edit anything, anywhere. For post-production on Canal Judicial's live broadcast and news programs, the editing software offers real-time, no-render editing of all popular SD, HD and 4K formats.

GV STRATUS and EDIUS are also fully integrated with K2 10G RAID Storage and K2 Summit 3G Transmission Clients so that finished content can be efficiently stored and distributed. The K2 10G RAID Storage System is fully scalable with SAS storage drives, 8 Gb/s Fiber Channel hardware RAID controllers, redundant connectivity, hot-swappable power supplies and high-performance bandwidth delivery. K2 Summit Transmission Client includes two HD/SD bidirectional channels and two HD/SD playout channels for configuration variety, as well as up/down/cross-conversion capability with full AFD, for worry-free migration from SD to HD.

"Canal Judicial's content is not only plentiful, but it's diverse too. These were both important factors in determining the best solutions to manage the network's news production needs," said Nahuel Villegas, vice president, Caribbean and Latin America, Grass Valley. "GV STRATUS, EDIUS, K2 Summit and K2 Storage systems are flexible in format, production environment, production tools, channel configuration and more, so Canal Judicial doesn't have to limit the amount or type of programming they deliver."

Grass Valley's complete news production solution allows Canal Judicial to create high-quality, highly creative content from a variety of production environments and provide viewers with up-to-the-minute news programming directly out of the Supreme Court.
