Grass Valley Underlines Position as the Frontrunner in Innovation with Award Wins at NAB Show 2019


MONTREAL 8:00 EST, April 18, 2019 – At NAB Show 2019, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, reiterated how its award-winning solutions help content creators, broadcasters and media organizations produce brilliant content. Two newly launched Grass Valley solutions, Grass Valley Creative Grading (GVCG) and GV STRATUS One, each brought home a Future Best of Show award presented by TV Technology, highlighting Grass Valley’s commitment to technology brilliance and bringing storytelling to the forefront. The Future Best of Show award honors outstanding new products exhibited at the NAB Show.

“NAB 2019 has underlined Grass Valley’s position as an R&D powerhouse and demonstrates how we help customers produce rich, high-quality content that brings viewers closer to the action. These awards are a testament to our unmatched expertise and continued commitment to innovation and R&D investment. GVCG continues our track record of ground-breaking technology advances. It illustrates how Grass Valley’s solutions free customers to focus on high-impact tasks as they create captivating experiences that connect people anywhere, on any device, through the magic of media,” Tim Shoulders, president at Grass Valley commented. “With GV STRATUS One we have opened up high-end production opportunities to broadcasters of all sizes. This solution reduces complexity with affordable, turnkey simplicity empowering smaller production operations to meet the growing demand for first class content.”

GVCG is unique in delivering intuitive, universal control that was previously unavailable to camera shaders. This innovative control panel and tablet application redefines the human interface, putting the user in full control of the creative power of Grass Valley cameras.

As the number of adjustments a camera shader is required to make grows exponentially, many important features that can help address the reality of broadcast conditions are not easily accessible in today’s user interfaces. GVCG ensures that these functions are made available in a way that makes sense to camera shaders – regardless of their training or experience.

The highly versatile GV STRATUS One combines the next generation technology of GV STRATUS software with applications from GVRE transcoding, GV I/O servers, and EDIUS editing into a comprehensive, single box. This compact 2RU solution streamlines collaborative workflows, allowing customers to expand content creation without adding headcount.

GV STRATUS One handles every aspect of the content management workflow from ingest, playout and recording through to transcoding and asset management. It also supports streaming to the web client and helps broadcasters overcome resource constraints to get content to viewers fast.

Grass Valley Creative Grading and GV STRATUS One were among a number of solutions making their debut at the NAB Show 2019.
