    Modular. Scalable. Powerful.
    Whether the most-watched live sports events in the world to news, studios, universities, corporate communications or your local house of worship, wherever superior production quality is needed, that's where you'll find Grass Valley Video Production Center switchers.

    Grass Valley production switchers reduce the complexity of the latest HDR, IP, 4K UHD and multiformat productions without restricting the creative tools you expect from a Grass Valley switcher. Every Kayenne, Karrera, or Korona control surface can operate with any Grass Valley K-Frame video production frame engine, giving you the ability to switch on a panel that meets your budget and production needs today, with options for tomorrow — without having to replace either switcher component.

    Switcher Control Surfaces:
    Kayenne — brings the highest level of performance available to live productions. The unique Kayenne control surface mounts flat or in a banked curve, and has up to 9 M/Es of full multiformat support. Its familiar design makes it ideal for environments where freelancers are employed.

    Karrera — provides field proven workflows and simplified control of complex productions, with 2 or 3 M/Es, for exceptional value for the most demanding productions.

    GV Korona — is space and cost-efficient with a built-in touchscreen menu system, innovative touchscreens in transition areas and available in 1, 2 and 3 M/E versions making Grass Valley's legendary switcher performance and control affordable for more productions.

    Switcher Video Production Frame Engines:
    GV K-Frame X — offers the largest I/O footprint in the industry with a cost-effective path to all IP connections, all SDI connections (including 12G-SDI) or a combination of both. Operating in either local or remote configurations, GV K-Frame X offers the ability for multiple protected shows to run on a single frame. Typically packaged with the Kayenne control surface, additional Karrera or Korona panels may be added for multiple operator use.

    K-Frame – brings a software-based, modular approach to switcher frames that provides simple upgradability, more efficient operations, simplified production workflows, as well as easy configuration and setup. K-Frame requires less initial capital investment and brings the ability to configure a video production switcher with full multiformat support — including 1080p50/60 and 4K UHD — to a user's specific application. Also typically packaged with the Kayenne control surface, additional Karrera or Korona panels may be added for multiple operator use.

    K-Frame S-series — combines ultimate mid-range switcher performance with up to 6 M/Es and up to 80x48 SDI I/Os in just 6 RU and a host of licensable features. The K-Frame S-series is packaged with either the Karrera control surface or GV Korona control surface for unmatched creative freedom to produce content at the highest level.

    K-Frame V-series — delivers exceptional value and incredible power with up to 3 M/Es plus 2 VPEs, up to 32x16 SDI plus 4x2 Media Port I/Os in just 3 RUs. Combined with the GV Korona control surface, this switcher is designed for low- and mid-range broadcast and media applications, where compromising on performance is not an option. GV Korona K-Frame V-series systems are available in three system packages, starting at 16x8 with 1, 2 or 3 M/Es and a compliment of licenses, for exceptional value and incredible power.

    Only with Grass Valley, do you get the flexibility of common operation and interchangeable show settings between different control surfaces — with Kayenne, Karrera and GV Korona — making configuration quick and easy.
