TF1 uses Grass Valley’s K2 Dyno for RWC replays
France: As France prepares to settle down at the weekend and see if anyone can really keep up with the All Blacks, TF1 will be using two Grass Valley K2 Dyno Replay Systems to enable live HD replays, slo-mos etc of the Rugby World Cup final.
The TF1 systems use both a K2 Summit and K2 Solo connected with an external HDD for replay, slow-motion, loop record, play-list, and storage.
“The Grass Valley solution is cutting edge technology that offers a number of advantages over other systems,” says Jean-Pascal Lefort, TF1’s Head of Studio Department. “The K2 Dyno Replay System is so intuitive to use, with playlists, thumbnails, and the ease of switching from two programs to program/preview, meaning our operators need little training. It is performing very well and standing up to the rigours of the World Cup, having to create live replays for up to three games back-to-back. We also plan to use it for some of our Formula 1 coverage.”
“We have created the K2 Dyno to be fast, reliable, and easy to use so that broadcasters can capture the perfect live replay,” says Jeff Rosica, Executive Vice President at Grass Valley. “TF1 is benefiting from version 2.0 of the K2 software and Grass Valley will continue to respond to feedback from customers to ensure that K2 Dyno remains the premier replay system.”
