Grass Valley helps TV Liberal make switch from SD to HD
TV Liberal, an affiliate of the Brazilian network TV Globo, is making the switch from standard definition to high definition with a new suite of products from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand. The transition to HD will enable TV Liberal to quickly deliver high-quality live productions, breaking news coverage and other timely information to its viewers.
“The Grass Valley solution provides us with operational excellence and reliability, while also giving us the flexibility to grow,” said Denis Brandão, technology director, TV Liberal. “We’ll have a new, efficient workflow that delivers better production and better news quality, which, in turn, makes our station more agile and competitive.”
At the centre of the installation is the NVISION 8280 router; NV9000 control system; one Karrera K-Frame S-series production switcher with proven workflows, simplified control of complex productions, and multiformat support including 1080p and 4K; two Kaleido-X and ultra-quiet Kaleido-MX multiviewers; two K2 SAN storage systems for both playout and production with K2 Summit 3G transmission clients for a guaranteed reliable 24/7/365 file-based infrastructure and workflow; GV GUARDIAN monitoring system; eight CopperHead 3200 systems for simultaneous transport of both digital and analogue program video; and a variety of multiprocessors, embedders, fibre systems and fibre cables.
TV Liberal has been a long-time customer and previously installed several K2 servers and SDI routers from Grass Valley. This latest investment positions the company for future 4K operations over a 10 Gbps IP network.
