With a worldwide heritage in live production switchers — from designing the first true multiformat switcher to the creative power and flexibility of switchers that offer all formats from SD to 4K UHD, and connectivity allowing you to mix traditional SDI and IP — Grass Valley brings you the Kahuna family of production switchers.
In addition to FormatFusion I/O conversion for mixed format production environments, the Kahuna 4800, Kahuna 6400 and Kahuna 9600 offer a large feature set, including powerful M/E functionality with enhanced DVE resize engines and 4K UHD and HDR capabilities across all Kahuna switchers.
Together with Kahuna Maverik — Grass Valley's Kahuna family switcher control surface — the Kahuna family provides many new operational modes. Of particular interest to users of at-home/remote production is Maverik's ability to remotely control more than one Kahuna switcher.
The most powerful switcher in the Kahuna family, the Kahuna 9600 is an enterprise-class switcher offering an unmatched feature set to meet the needs of the highest caliber of productions.
The Kahuna 6400 delivers huge power and flexibility to the widest range of applications including regional news, sports production, houses of worship and magazine programs.
Offering superb value for money, the Kahuna 4800 is an immensely capable and well-engineered mid-level production switcher.
