MRTV Myanmar gears up for SEA Games with Grass Valley production gear

MRTV Myanmar, Myanmar’s national broadcaster, has purchased several Grass Valley solutions to broadcast live HD coverage of the 2013 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, which will be held in three cities across Myanmar this December. Grass Valley designed and delivered two turnkey flight packs and a complete outdoor broadcast (OB) van to enable MRTV to deliver coverage of the Games from multiple cities, marking the first-ever HD live coverage in Myanmar.

“Myanmar is honoured to be hosting the SEA Games this year and it’s crucial that MRTV delivers top-quality HD coverage for fans across the region to enjoy. With this in mind, MRTV selected Grass Valley largely because not only did we offer a completely integrated turnkey solution but also on-site support and consultation. Grass Valley’s HD solutions will give viewers a full HD experience, which we know they will love,” said Stephen Wong, senior vice-president of Asia Pacific, Grass Valley.

Included in MRTV’s systems purchase are a range of Grass Valley solutions including 18 units of LDX Première software upgradable cameras and XCU eXchangeable Control Unit base stations, which will allow the broadcaster to easily move camera chains between systems, providing a mobile and cost-efficient scalable solution for live production. MRTV has also selected Grass Valley’s Kayak production switcher, Concerto routers, four K2 Dyno Replay Systems, and various other live production solutions. Grass Valley provided the complete design, on-site support, turnkey integration and user training.
