Combining Ignite version 7.5 with other Grass Valley solutions provides more streamlined workflows with optimized production, including Ignite with GV Director for automated control of production processes for video switching, multilayer effects, animated graphics, multiviewer monitoring and more — all in a single, intuitive and highly creative system. Ignite with GV STRATUS helps broadcasters generate alternative revenue streams by providing higher rates of throughput for multi-distribution delivery of content for the web and mobile devices, while Ignite with the Karrera K-Frame S-series production switcher creates an ideal mid-range automated production control and switching platform.

“With the broadcast industry embracing digital, nonlinear media production models whereby content is acquired, managed, modified, transferred and played out as digital files, Ignite is a proven and reliable means of choreographing these activities in as streamlined a fashion as possible,” said Mike Cronk, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “Through tighter integration with Grass Valley production systems as well as strategic third-party support, version 7.5 represents the latest in a series of ongoing, differentiated enhancements to the Ignite solution that will continuously increase our customers’ overall production value and maximize their return on investment.”
