Grass Valley launches new all-in-one production suite
Grass Valley has launched the GV Stratus One Pro, a new all-in-one production suite.
The new platform is one of two new additions to the GV Stratus One product family, alongside the new GV Stratus One Express.
According to Grass Valley, GV Stratus One allows collaborative working across every aspect of the media workflow with production teams now able to harness more storage, processing power and rendering abilities to deliver compelling content to multiple linear and digital delivery platforms with a single click.
The Pro and Express options also include groups of licenses with the users’ choice of editor, whether Grass Valley’s Edius software included or Adobe Premiere connect licenses.
The Pro is housed in a 2 RU footprint, handling the entire production process from recording, transcoding and storage to streaming, editing and playout. The automated rules engine and social media management tools mean production teams can easily manage, organise and distribute content to a variety of platforms.
GV Stratus One is ideally suited for a wide range of applications, from small broadcast operations, to regional and satellite stations, all the way to event venues and houses of worship. Grass Valley claim it is easy to deploy, enabling a fully operational production environment to be creating content within hours, not weeks.
Pete Semerak, vice president of production at Grass Valley, commented: “Production teams across the board, regardless of size, are now managing a rapidly growing volume of content across a wide range of functions and channels. This can add huge amounts of complexity to operations, often requiring several individual systems to support each aspect of the workflow, and the technical know-how to set up and manage them. With GV Stratus One Pro we’re giving customers the opportunity to streamline their production workflows, providing more power and flexibility to meet viewers’ demands for more content.”
