Grass Valley’s GV Edge for WRN broadcast

December 9, 2013

WRN Broadcast, the UK-based global managed services company, has installed Grass Valley’s GV Edge integrated playout system with K2 Edge playout nodes to deliver and manage content from CSC Media Group, one of the largest UK-based satellite television channel providers. WRN Broadcast has migrated 20 CSC Media Group channels, including Buzmuzik, True Drama, True Movies and Pop on Sky, using the GV Edge system.

“WRN Broadcast prides itself on working closely with both our clients and technology partners to make sure of a first-class service performance and this contract with CSC Media is a perfect example of this,” said Dave Travis, Chief Technology Officer, WRN Broadcast. “Integration with Grass Valley’s GV Edge was seamless as CSC Media Group were already operating Grass Valley’s equipment, although we particularly liked the integrated architecture of GV Edge, which allows us to scale-up and launch new channels in the most flexible and efficient manner. We look forward to working together with Grass Valley as CSC Media continues its success and looks to roll out more channels internationally.”

WRN Broadcast is using GV Edge to enable centralised control over its operations by combining all the necessary functions of integrated playout—media playout, sophisticated channel graphics, and asset management into one integrated system.
