AMPP provides a new level of freedom for cloud-based live video production.

Freedom to Scale

Unlike traditional hardware systems, AMPP does not require a large upfront infrastructure buildout to begin experimenting with new agile media production models. Spin up as many operator instances as required where and when they are needed.

AMPP may be located on any combination of public and private cloud services. As a result, AMPP can quickly spin up solutions that integrate with an existing infrastructure. Any subset of network sources can be shared with other AMPP-enabled cloud production solutions. Each instance of an AMPP-enabled solution can select sources on-the-fly from any that are available on AMPP.

Freedom to Move

Live event environments with reduced on-site production crews frequently want creatives to work remotely. AMPP solutions support remote production at any distance without compromising the user experience. In addition to revolutionary new user interfaces and simplified workflows, GV AMPP expands the capability of existing equipment and operations with seamless integration to cloud services. In addition to revolutionary new user interfaces and simplified workflows, GV AMPP expands the capability of existing equipment and operations with seamless integration to cloud services.

When at-home production means literally working from home, AMPP is ready to support that work environment. Operators can connect to AMPP using typical residential Internet. The high-quality proxy workflow allows operators to make and act on decisions without requiring a high bandwidth connection.

Freedom to Innovate

Unfettered by bundles of cables, operators continue to work in a familiar environment with Grass Valley’s innovate software tools. AMPP’s patented intelligent technologies to allow operators to work in a coherent timespace with confidence and speed. Regardless of the distance from the live event, system operations are instantly responsive. The system’s fully aligned monitoring and communication capability makes it easy for operators to work without distracting timing delays.

Independent Platform Deployment

Independent Platform DeploymentThe Agile Media Processing Platform is a fully software-based solution that runs in any data center or cloud environment. It supports a modular, efficient approach to everyday broadcast workflows such as live production, playout automation, asset management, signal processing and master switching.

GV AMPP gives broadcasters the power to easily transition to cloud- and data center-based operations because it addresses the concerns that complicate IP and cloud deployments — particularly network connectivity and latency.

GV AMPP enables easy, elastic content creation and storytelling from anywhere for any kind of live and non-live storytelling, content discovery and delivery.

 

Five Core TechnologiesGV AMPP's architecture is based on five core technologies and 17 patented advancements
  • GV Intelligent Media Fabric: Unique management for distribution of digital media (video, images, audio and metadata).
  • GV Intelligent Media Connect: Unique management for connections between devices that distribute and process digital media (video, images, audio and metadata).
  • GV Intelligent Media Timing: Unique management for the timing of digital media (video, images, audio and metadata).
  • GV Intelligent Media Identity: Unique management the identity of connected devices that process and distribute digital media (video, images, audio and metadata) and manage the identity of the digital media (video, images, audio and metadata) itself.
  • GV Intelligent Media Streams: Unique management for processing digital media (video, images, audio and metadata) based on the media, itself.

 

RIST logoUnique Software Media Processing Boosts AMPP Platform Capabilities

An extensive set of microservices and our latest software processing tools enable GV AMPP applications, file-based workflows, and streaming in real time and non-real time. The virtualization and cloud-friendly core services allow for the fastest and lowest latency on the market.

Low-Latency Cloud Streaming and Monitoring

Global low-latency streaming and the ability to always choose the right mechanism is a core function of GV AMPP. Low latency is enabled with H.264, HEVC, AAC or OPUS at any bitrate with configurable FEC and support for RIST and SRT.

Security

SecurityAs a cloud native, AMPP is designed from the ground up with security in mind.

Conforming to the best IT practices of a representational state transfer (REST) architecture:

  • All REST operations are executed over HTTPS for secure communication
  • All REST operations rely on JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for authorization

IP streaming in AMPP is encrypted when applicable (SRT (AES), RIST (AES), RTMPS (TLS/SSL), WebRTC (DTLS/SRTP), AMPP Streaming (DTLS/SRTP)).

AMPP authentication is handled through an Identity Service which can optionally delegate authentication to an Okta server.

To ensure strict security standards are maintained, Grass Valley also regularly conducts third-party penetration testing.

GV AMPP Tools
