Today, especially, the constraints and challenges of handling video in secure and sensitive environments is particularly important. When you integrate Grass Valley solutions into your facility and workflows, you gain access to a strategic leader in industrial, enterprise and media market solutions with the scale and stability to withstand the cyclical nature of the media business while delivering world-class, global support to the markets we serve.

During Government Video Expo, we will be highlighting the recently released GV Korona K-Frame V-series production switcher which is specifically designed for small and mid-range applications — where compromise on performance is not an option. The V-series features a 3 RU frame and is most often coupled with the Korona 1, 2 or 3 M/E panel. The size, scalability and price point meets the needs of smaller scale environments, with room to grow.

As more broadcast and video environments move to IP transport, system monitoring becomes a challenge. If you are considering the transition from baseband to IP, come by the booth and see how the Kaleido-IP Multiviewer brings the function and flexibility of the Kaleido baseband series of multiviewers into the IP world. Kaleido IP is designed to allow for signal monitoring within the IP framework to allow operators to monitor and assess the quality of IP video environments.

Grass Valley has been a leader in fiber optic video transport for decades. Under the former Telecast product line (now the Grass Valley fiber line), traditional interfaces and new format requirements allow for long distance fiber connection of multiple locations.

With the latest in SDI and IP video technologies, and with a variety of price-points, it's time to rethink Grass Valley. We look forward to seeing you at Government Video Expo!

HDR and the Broadcast Environment: Better Pixels Create Better Content

HDRConsumers have long judged video content by the visible quality of the image on the screen, and are always pursuing the next breakthrough in display technology. Over the years, we've witnessed the shift from black-and-white to color, from SD to HD, the failed introduction of consumer 3D for the home and now we are seeing simultaneous interest in both 4K UHD and HDR. Content producers are embracing both technologies, while early adopter consumers are investing in new displays that can support the latest formats.

Aggregation is Key to Optimizing IP Network Design

While considering IP network design can be aggravating, the key to optimizing IP network design is aggregation. Aggregation combines multiple network connections in parallel to increase throughput beyond what a single connection could sustain, or at less cost than a signal connection. By using aggregation, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, can help you to get the most out of today's media-carrying IP networks, while protecting yourself against near-term obsolescence without necessarily adding the most expensive, highest bandwidth IP switches available. Thus, aggregation is the key to slimlined IP capital expenditures as well as future update costs, whether considered CapEx or OpEx.

IP for Broadcast: Competitive Advantage or Table Stakes?

It seems like everyone is talking about the adoption of IP technology for broadcast applications. It's no longer a question of why transition to IP-based platforms, but rather when and how. As with any new technology adoption, these questions can be tough to answer. Here are a few things that can help narrow the discussion.
