Brazil’s TV Vitoria/Record, delivering news and other informational programming to millions of viewers across Brazil, has selected an end-to-end solution from Grass Valley to facilitate a quick and smooth transition from SD to HD.
Grass Valley is supplying the station with a GV STRATUS nonlinear media production toolset, eight EDIUS Elite nonlinear editing software seats, a Karrera Video Production Center switcher with K-Frame, four LDX Flex HD studio camera systems with XCU (eXchangeable Control Unit) base stations, three K2 Summit 3G 4-channel media servers, a K2 Solo 3G portable 2-channel media server, and the K2 Dyno S Replay Controller, as well as K2 SAN storage. The project will be completed in March 2014.
“We are fully committed to providing our viewers the best quality of service possible, so transitioning from SD to HD is a natural next step for us,” said Jocemiro Perreira at TV Vitoria/Record. “Grass Valley has seamlessly made our roadmap to HD possible. The complete solution means we will have a fully modernised infrastructure, and with GV STRATUS we will have a wide variety of tools that allow us to truly maximize our workflows.”
With its new HD solution in place, the station will benefit from a long overdue nonlinear operation and multiplatform distribution, as well as improved 3G signal transmission with the LDX Flex HD camera systems and XCU base stations in place.
