Kayenne Video Production Center

The World's Most Powerful Control Surface

Kayenne with K-Frame brings the highest level of performance available to live productions with the innovative features and upgradability only from Grass Valley. You can mount the unique Kayenne control flat or in a banked curve, and configure Kayenne with full multiformat support including 1080p and 4K. And its familiar design makes it ideal for environments where freelancers are employed. When needed, Kayenne can adapt to offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to 9 M/Es with six keyers in every full M/E.

FEATURES
