Grass Valley Kayenne set-up for AMP VISUAL TV
AMP VISUAL TV has purchased one 4 M/E Kayenne XL Video Production Center switcher panel and upgraded one 2 M/E Kayenne XL switcher panel to a 4 M/E Kayenne XL switcher panel to add greater scalability to its workflow and deliver more versatility to its customers.
AMP VISUAL TV supplies a variety of broadcast needs across France. The company builds and manages broadcast facilities including TV studios, OB vans and offers additional services including wireless and 2nd screen solutions. The Kayenne switchers will replace existing Grass Valley Kayak models that have been in place for several years.
“We were looking for the finest switcher on the market today to equip our studios and OB vans,” said François Valadoux, chief technology officer, AMP VISUAL TV. “Having worked with Grass Valley for several years, we were already familiar with and confident in the high-quality products and excellent service they provide, so choosing the Kayenne was easy. It has all of the key features we were looking for in a switcher, including scalability and low power consumption.”
“France continues to be a key market for Grass Valley, so we’re delighted that AMP VISUAL TV is taking advantage of the powerful capabilities of our Kayenne switcher to meet the needs of its customers,” commented Said Bacho, senior vice president, EMEA, Grass Valley. “We designed the Kayenne with versatility in mind, which is evident in its ability to meet a variety of production needs ranging from small to large and remote or in-studio—which is perfect for a company like AMP VISUAL TV that offers a variety of broadcast services to its client base.”
