Grass Valley IP Routing Infrastructure Gives Unitecnic Seamless Interoperability at Upgraded Buenos Aires Facility

Unitecnic, the Mediapro Group systems integrator and engineering company, has selected a suite of Grass Valley IP infrastructure solutions to form the backbone of Mediapro’s facility upgrade at its Buenos Aires, Argentina premise. The deployment ensures seamless integration with Unitecnic’s existing workflows and marks the launch of the systems integrator’s IP-first roadmap to future-proof operations across live entertainment and sports productions worldwide.

The system upgrade is built around Grass Valley’s GV Orbit for efficient configuration, monitoring and control, along with the IQUCP25 multichannel, configurable video-over-IP transceiver, and the Kaleido-IP Video Multiviewer, ensuring the provider benefits from an overarching, all-in-one IP system, including access to gateways with NMOS capability. The comprehensive IP-first approach gives Unitecnic mission-critical interoperability, with easy to use, flexible solutions, and enhanced UHD capacity. The IP solutions maximize day-to-day production efficiencies and capabilities while laying the foundations for a more agile, scalable production infrastructure, ensuring the service provider can continue to meet audience demand for cutting-edge live content.

Jordi Pañella, CEO at Unitecnic, said: “As production values evolve with ever-changing demands for UHD video and more content worldwide, Grass Valley’s range of IP solutions give us the future-ready foundation that enables Unitecnic and Mediapro to thrive. Grass Valley’s expertise and diligence in IP-based production systems and SDI migration meant that it was the number one choice to help us transition from SDI to IP, and the products are in tune with the latest SMPTE and AMWA standards meaning interoperability is completely seamless.”

“Shifting from SDI to IP infrastructure is one of the best ways to design flexible, future-ready broadcast technology roadmaps that align with the requirements for more dynamic, immersive production values,” said Nahuel Villegas, Vice President, Caribbean and Latin America, Grass Valley. “IP unlocks the ability to scale and adapt to evolving demands, while forming a key component of a more robust and future-thinking broadcasting business model, and I’m delighted that we are supporting Unitecnic and Mediapro with the design of a first-class facility in the LATAM region”

This latest 2021 deployment extends Unitecnic and Mediapro’s long-standing relationship with Grass Valley in Europe and Latin America, trusting Grass Valley’s worldwide team of professionals in IP broadcast systems and infrastructure.
