Equipping for the 3D Revolution in Content Production

The 2010 Australian Broadcast Exhibition, to be held August 3-5 at the Manly Pacific Hotel in Sydney, will offer attendees a hands-on look at many of the latest 3D and high-definition production and distribution products from Grass Valley™. Grass Valley representatives will also be delivering a number of highly focused technical papers as part of the bi-annual show’s agenda, which has become the region’s pre-eminent television broadcast technology exhibition and conference in association with Free TV Australia.

Attendees to the Grass Valley exhibit (Booth #5) will see working presentations of the various products and systems and how they all work together to facilitate a seamless workflow that can be used to produce content faster and distribute it more efficiently.
