CCW 2014: Grass Valley To Showcase Karrera K-Frame S-series Video Production Center

Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, will showcase the recently launched Karrera K-Frame S-series Video Production Center and other solutions designed to keep customers future-ready in booth #1015 at the Content and Communications World (CCW) Expo. In addition to product displays, Grass Valley experts will be on hand to talk about IP migration, 4K/UHD and other trends impacting broadcast workflow.

“This year’s CCW Expo comes at a particularly exciting time for broadcasters, content owners and service providers as the pace of technology introduction and adoption accelerates across facilities and formats,” says Mike Cronk, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “At CCW Expo, customers will learn how Grass Valley’s differentiating combination of products, expertise and experience can meet their needs today and prepare them for the opportunities of tomorrow.”

In the area of baseband-to-IP migration, Grass Valley leverages Belden’s legacy of working with enterprise and industrial connectivity customers as they made the transition to IP. Similarly, Grass Valley offers broadcasters a uniquely open IP migration path driven by SDN-enabled control that seamlessly supports hybrid SDI/IP signal environments. At the CCW Expo, Grass Valley will sponsor a general session panel discussion titled, “The IP-Based Facility: Is It For You? If So, When?” on November 13 at 9 a.m. This panel will take place in Javits Convention Center, Room 1A23, and will discuss the move to full IP infrastructure in the years ahead.
