Broadcast Asia 15 - 18 June in Singapore

At the 15th annual Broadcast Asia 2010 International Digital Multimedia & Entertainment Technology Exhibition & Conference, June 15-18 in Singapore, Grass Valley™ will demonstrate several of its latest high-definition (HD) production technologies and how they can work in tandem to make the transition to file-based production easy and cost-effective.

Market share across the entire Asia-Pacific region has been steadily increasing for Grass Valley in all of the equipment categories in which it participates and at the 2010 Broadcast Asia exhibition the company is poised to show attendees the new products designed especially for a wide variety of professional production applications.

In stand # 8G3-01, Grass Valley will exhibit its full line of K2 media server products, as well as the LDK 8300 HD 3X Super SloMo camera system, T2™ intelligent Digital Disk Recorder (iDDR), EDIUS® real-time HD editing software, and the MEDIAEDGE® digital signage and on-demand content delivery platform.

Included in hands-on demonstrations will be the Grass Valley K2 Dyno™ HD replay system, running ChannelFlex™ for the ultimate in channel and video stream flexibility, the K2 Dyno Production Assistant a software platform for managing the content for live event productions, and the K2 Summit/Solo production workstation.

The K2 Dyno is a powerful and cost-effective replay controller, which includes the ability to handle super slow-motion and 3D projects and works seamlessly with the Grass Valley K2 Summit™ production client and K2 Solo compact media server. The next-generation replay system is designed to help sports producers and other professionals capture live events in crystal-clear HD resolutions and instantly play them out at variable speeds for critical analysis during fast-paced events. For 3D operations, the left and right eye inputs can be synchronized within a single channel.

The Grass Valley K2 Dyno Production Assistant extends the capabilities of the K2 Dyno replay system and runs on a typical Windows PC. The platform can support scenarios where a single client provides a global point of content management, as well as multiple clients deployed to directors, media managers, or editors with individual workspace layouts.


The Grass Valley LDK 8300 Live Super SloMo high-definition camera not only operates in 3X speed but is switchable among 1X, 2X, and 3X speeds. It is ideal for all slow-motion tasks in sports production and offers unmatched operational flexibility. Based on Grass Valley's unique HD-DPM+™ sensors, the LDK 8300 HD camera can be natively switched between 1080i and 720p formats. The camera's AnyLight feature eliminates flicker caused by artificial lighting and supports third-party digital disk devices for recording and storing HD images.

EDIUS 5.5, introduced last month at NAB, continues the EDIUS tradition of delivering unmatched power in editing complex modern compression types. A unique and proprietary AVCHD editing engine enables real time, multi-stream editing of AVCHD compressed video without the need for expensive hardware assistance.


Delivering superb image quality, versatility, and usability, the Grass Valley T2 iDDR is a next-generation record and playback system that combines advanced nonlinear features (direct, frame-accurate access to content), with VTR-like controls. It has two-channel synchronized playback for key/fill rolls, edge blended displays, multi-screen, and 3D applications, as well as two playback channels and one record channel, all simultaneously and independently available, supporting full 1920x1080 (60i/50i/24p) resolution, as well as 720p and 480i formats.
