Grass Valley marks 1000 sales of NVISION routers
Grass Valley has reached a new product milestone, selling more than 1,000 NVISION 8500 Enterprise Routers to broadcasters, studios, mobile production and playout facilities globally. Often referred to as a hybrid technology routing platform, the NVISION router was designed with an eye toward the future and is easily adapted to support increased levels of processing, bandwidth and even connectivity.
When the series originally launched it was a family of one, designed and shipped as the NV8576 that supported SDI over coax and fiber as well as Async AES. Since then, the series has expanded to include four additional frames: the NV8144, the NV8280, the NV8576-Plus and the NV8140.
By creating a family of routers, Grass Valley made more components interchangeable between frames and as a result, the company experienced a significant response from the market. With the growth of the family, the NVISION series became ideal for customers looking to expand into bigger frames without having to replace all of their I/O or crosspoint cards. The series also gives customers the ability to have multi-router systems and only one set of spares.
Broadcasters around the world have come to rely on NVISION routers to keep their operations running at peak performance. A number of major international networks, as well as IMG Studios in the U.K., LeSEA Broadcasting Network and the MLB Network in the U.S., and _wige MEDIA AG in Germany, are just a few examples of operations utilizing the power of NVISION routers.
