Grass Valley Introduces GV Node

Grass Valley debuts at IBC 2015 the world's first true, realtime IP processing platform, GV Node. Offering multipurpose video and audio processing, vertically accurate switching and IP aggregation, GV Node is a critical next step in the growth of Grass Valley's GlasstoGlass IP solution for broadcasters, enabling them to apply the unprecedented flexibility of IP in more applications throughout their workflows. GV Node allows broadcasters to combine many of the advantages of a data center model with the specific requirements of a live broadcast production environment. This unique IP processing node is designed to serve as a primary source of switching in live production. In early applications, customers may choose to operate GV Node alongside commercial offtheshelf IP switches to offer paths with deterministic switching that are ideal for backup in directtoair and secondary live feed applications. Historically, COTS IP switches have been unable to perform vertically accurate switching like traditional SDI routers. This is especially important in live applications where signals go directly to air, and where routers have traditionally been used as a backup to the production switcher. Switching that happens accurately within the vertical interval is also needed when a router is used for connecting secondary live feeds. The GV Node distributed platform topology is designed to uplink to aggregation COTS IP switches, using a spineleaf architecture that's typical of modern IT infrastructures. This topology represents a much more scalable and flexible approach than traditional, centralized routing systems, which have encouraged the purchase of larger, more expensive chassis than necessary in order to allow future expansion. This type of distributed topology enables the realization of a true broadcastcentric data center model. GV Node delivers multiple signal processing and monitoring functions and provides IP and SDI I/O as well as MADI I/O, audio deembedding/embedding and monitoring. The builtin, highly scalable multiviewer uses industryproven Kaleido technology for the high picture quality and layout flexibility. GV Node is designed to be FutureReady with respect to currently changing industry signal formats and standards, currently supporting both SMPTE 20226 (HD) videooverIP and 4K 1wire using TICO compression.

Grass Valley Introduces K2 Central TX Supporting 100 Mbps Playout Bandwidth on Each of up to 20 Channels

Grass Valley introduced the Grass Valley K2 Central TX shared storage solution which provides exceptional performance, supporting 100 Mbps playout on each of up to 20 channels, at a competitive price. K2 Central TX makes it easy to migrate from legacy play-to-air storage and server systems, offering streamlined content delivery from camera to playout. K2 Central TX's 6TB drive technology combined with K2 Summit 3G means broadcasters can enjoy greater storage capacity with support for all major automation and third-party storage providers—thereby ensuring a seamless switchover from legacy products. And with its client direct-connect model which eliminates the need for external switches and database management, K2 Central TX lowers the overall complexity of the integration, meaning a new multichannel server solution with shared storage can be installed quickly and efficiently. The integration of 10 GbE high-speed network connectivity and higher FTP throughput enables K2 Central TX to simplify the delivery of content into shared storage. The variety of codecs supported by K2 servers allows back-to-back playback of clips in a variety of formats without the need for transcoding, which further speeds up the process of content delivery and utilization in various destinations. In addition, K2 Central TX works with multiple editing clients including Grass Valley EDIUS, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Avid Media Composer, which is supported through two 10 GigE connections to deliver services using FTP and CIFS. The new storage system comes with several layers of redundancy. RAID-1 data redundancy ensures disk failure will not result in dropped frames or loss of content. Client disconnection only affects channels associated with that client until the connection is re-established, and power supplies are hot-swappable, which means a power supply failure will not disrupt system operation.
