NVP Optimizes OB Fleet for 4K UHD and HDR with Live Production Solutions from Grass Valley
Both trucks are equipped with Grass Valley’s 4K UHD and HDR-capable, Kahuna 9600 production switcher, Kaleido multiviewers, Densité modular infrastructure, Sirius 840 router and KudosPro converters. These solutions were chosen for their excellent picture quality, flexibility and exceptional resilience. The powerful 4K UHD and HDR capability of the Kahuna 9600 and its seamless integration with the Sirius 840 router, together deliver a completely scalable path to all functionality and format requirements – all critical factors for NVP.
The project’s system integration, design and build was provided by Video Progetti, a leading Italian systems integrator and long-term Grass Valley channel partner.
"It was crucial for us to future-proof these first-class trucks with the best and latest technologies that could support live 4K UHD/HDR productions,” added Carlo Struzzi, chief executive officer at Video Progetti. “When it came to sourcing critical elements like production switchers, routers and multiviewers, we knew to look no further than to Grass Valley. These solutions are helping make NVP’s OB vans a model in technical and operational efficiency for the industry."
“It’s imperative that broadcasters are equipped with the right tools and technologies that enable them to meet the growing expectations of viewers,” said Tim Banks, vice president of sales, EMEA, Grass Valley. “We’re proud to be working with NVP helping them to deliver the highest quality live productions with a rock-solid and future-proof solution for their OB fleet."
NVP plans to launch a third 4K UHD and HDR-enabled OB van in 2020, as it continues to expand its operations both in Italy and across other markets.
