Belarus National Studios upgrades with Grass Valley

Bel TV, the national TV and radio broadcasting company of the Republic of Belarus, has chosen solutions from Grass Valley to take its live news and video production capabilities to the next level. The company purchased GV STRATUS for video production and content management, EDIUS for editing, K2 servers for storage, and Densité infrastructure components for signal processing. The equipment was supplied, installed and commissioned by Offtech, a local systems integrator.

“We chose to do business with Grass Valley because we know we will benefit from the company’s innovative solutions which help us save money and create powerful media content,” said Aliaksandr Hryblo, chief technology officer, Bel TV. “Our goal is to broadcast the most urgent and interesting news in accordance with international requirements of quality and speed. We appreciate Grass Valley’s customer-oriented approach and look forward to expanding our mutual cooperation with its talented technical team as well as our system integrator Offtech.”

This is Bel TV’s first major project with Grass Valley and Offtech. After evaluating all of the options on the market and establishing a timeline for completing the project, Bel TV chose Grass Valley and has been very pleased with the performance of the solutions as well as the support provided by Grass Valley and the integrator. The installation spanned both the editing complex and the studio at Bel TV.

According to Viktor Ushatkin, chief technology officer, Offtech, “The Grass Valley equipment in the new editing complex of Bel TV will allow the company to exceed its expectations in efficiency and dynamic live production capabilities. Grass Valley has a powerful line of broadcast solutions full of competitive advantages. The opportunity to form a positive, long-term partnership with Grass Valley was one of the main drivers to make this project a reality.”
