Latest Grass Valley Production Technologies on Display at BES India

Grass Valley can be found at booth 116A

Visitors to the 2012 Broadcast Engineering Society (BES) Exhibition on February 11-13 at the Pragati Maidan Convention Center in New Delhi will have the opportunity to see hands-on demonstrations of the latest Grass Valley™ high definition, IT-centric live production equipment and systems. The presentation will include two HD camera models, a live production switcher and servers.

The Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite is widely regarded as the world’s flagship HD camera, used by most of the leading outside broadcast operators and in production studios around the globe. It will be on display at BES alongside the LDK 3000+ HD camera, aimed at more price sensitive applications, which uses much of the same optics and electronics but is based on Grass Valley’s unique Xensium CMOS imagers.

Also on display and ready for visitors to try will be the popular Kayak™ video production switcher. At BES Grass Valley will have a large, 3 M/E version with massive capabilities for even the most complex shows. The live production chain is completed by the K2 Dyno™ replay system, which includes a K2 Dyno Replay Controller and a K2 Summit™ media server.


For post production, the latest version (6..06) of the Grass Valley EDIUS® multiformat editing software will be on hand. This delivers uncompromised multi-format editing on a standard PC platform. For media playback in broadcast and professional AV applications, the T2™ Intelligent Digital Disk Recorder (iDDR) will also be shown. Finally, the latest products in the ADVC G-Series family of advanced signal processing, conversion, and hardware acceleration products will be available.

"Exhibiting at BES Expo 2012 gives Grass Valley the opportunity to meet existing and potential customers in the region," said Andrew Sedek, Senior Vice President of the Asia Pacific Region, for Grass Valley. "Our booth focuses on the latest products, feature upgrades and file-based workflow enhancements from Grass Valley that are relied upon by so many broadcasters and professional production companies around the world."


The terrestrial and satellite broadcasting community in India continues to be an important growth market for Grass Valley, as video professionals and broadcasters there have embraced Grass Valley’s multiformat technologies while seamlessly and cost-effectively upgrading their facilities to digital HD studio operations as well as HD live event production.
