Grass Valley Supercharges 4K UHD Production with K-Frame XP Video Processing Engine

 

Grass Valley reinforces its leadership in driving the evolution of live production with the launch of its new GV K-Frame XP video production engine. Designed to make higher resolution content creation easier, the new compact switcher packs a powerful punch with unmatched functionality across multiformat environments and high signal density, even with the increased bandwidth requirements of 4K UHD. Featuring true single stream, full raster, 4K processing at 2160p, the K-Frame XP eliminates the need for compromise in 4K UHD productions; there’s no reduction in I/O count in 4K UHD, no reduction in M/Es, keyers or DPMS in 4K UHD, and no change in operator workflow in 4K UHD.

Marco Lopez, Grass Valley’s senior vice president of live production, commented: “With the drive to deliver richer storytelling, we’re seeing customers really ramp up the volume of 4K UHD content being produced. This demand for increased production bandwidth has created workarounds that in the past have ultimately slowed down and put limits on the workflow. Grass Valley has built a hugely powerful hardware platform that can take on the ultra-fast pace of live content production – particularly sports – and ease the constraints of handling any resolution, even 4K UHD.”

Grass Valley Introduces Major Advances in IP-Connected Live Production and Strategic Direction Toward The Cloud Posted: 14/04/2020
Grass Valley Introduces Major Advances in IP-Connected Live Production and Strategic Direction Toward The Cloud

Grass Valley demonstrates its commitment to leading the industry toward a cloud-based future with a series of product introductions and new, soon-to-be-released strategic initiatives that promise to shift the paradigm in media workflow flexibility, scalability and performance.

During this challenging time for the world and our heavily impacted industry, Grass Valley leverages its history of stability and reliability to deliver solutions that help content creators and media organizations manage through the current crisis while also ensuring they’re prepared for the future with tools that help them deal with the unprecedented demand for more content by enabling them to unleash the creativity of their teams.

For Live Production, Grass Valley launches the LDX 100 camera platform, a high-speed, native UHD camera built specifically for the rigors of IP-connected workflows, such as Remote/At-Home Production because it connects directly into the contribution network – eliminating the need for an external control unit. LDX 100 maximizes rich storytelling abilities and is ergonomically designed to provide additional benefits for operators.

Complementing the new camera platform is the launch of the company’s newest production switcher engine, K-Frame XP. Featuring true single-stream, full raster processing at 2160p, the K-Frame XP takes the complexity out of 4K UHD workflows, removing the processing power barriers that have existed that forced compromises in I/O count and even in the on-air look. Popular Grass Valley switcher control surfaces Kayenne, Karrera, GV Korona and KSP are compatible with K-Frame XP, allowing customers to leverage their existing investments.

Marco Lopez, Grass Valley’s senior vice president of live production, commented, “Our customers have seen big increases in demand for 4K UHD content and many of them are using IP workflows to support this growing demand. These two new platforms deliver on the Grass Valley promise to enable storytellers to unleash their creativity while increasing their workflow efficiency.”
