Grass Valley Enables Open-Standards IP Production for IBC TV

MONTREAL, August 19, 2019 — IBC TV, the official television channel of IBC 2019 (September 13-18, Amsterdam), has once again chosen Grass Valley as its technical partner, selecting a comprehensive suite of broadcast production tools to support its live broadcasts from the show floor. The channel will engage more than 55,000 IBC attendees with captivating content, and be a working showcase for the industry march to open standards-based IP technologies.

Four GV LDX 86 Universe cameras, that combine both higher frame rates like 6X, and higher resolution for 4K UHD into one camera head, are being deployed, alongside Grass Valley's XCU Universe UXF base stations, that support the extended bandwidth requirements of LDX 86 Series high-speed cameras. IBC TV is also leveraging a three M/E GV Korona K-Frame V-Series system that combines mid-range broadcast and media applications. As part of the channel's bid to leverage IP technologies for flexible and agile operations, all of the Grass Valley kit is SMPTE ST2110 video over IP enabled and native SDI connected.

"Our customers are continually looking at how they can create new and innovative workflows underpinned by scalable, agile infrastructures that deliver smart workflows. Our deployment with IBC TV is a clear example of that," said Chuck Meyer, chief technical officer, live, Grass Valley. '"As the only manufacturer that delivers all-IP communication between a camera and base station, we are proud that IBC TV selected Grass Valley to help deliver video to the thousands of viewers tuning in."

Grass Valley kit will also be running in the IBC conference rooms throughout the RAI, including the Densité 3 Frames with audio and video processing cards to enable multiple AV formats in a single frame.
