Broadcast technology company Grass Valley will kick off its 4K/UHD Roadshow on November 2 in the Netherlands.
The tour, which will take in 10 cities around the world, aims to demonstrate the readiness of Grass Valley’s 4K and IP technology and show broadcasters the benefits of the firm’s latest solutions.
“To help these professionals better understand the options and determine the right suite of integrated solutions for their own businesses, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, is hitting the road for a series of educational events that will give attendees hands-on experience with some of the leading solutions in the market,” the company said.
Each stage of the roadshow will showcase 4K/UHD solutions made possible with the extensive Grass Valley portfolio, which embraces system cameras, production switchers and replay systems. New products on display will include the award-winning LDX 86N 4K/UHD camera and the GV Korona K-Frame S-series production switcher. These solutions will be underpinned by Grass Valley’s networking systems, including the GV Node IP processing and routing platform and Kaleido multiviewers.
The roadshow is designed to give CTOs, broadcast engineers and consultants an idea of how Grass Valley can help them implement 4K/UHD into their workflows now and embrace IP interoperability going forward.
“The choices that are available can be overwhelming,” explained Jan-Pieter van Welsem, vice president of sales and marketing, EMEA, Grass Valley. “This roadshow is set up to give attendees a better understanding of how to adopt the latest 4K/UHD technology and what kinds of equipment might be a good fit for them right now. We know that every business is different; by coming to these events, our customers and potential customers will be better prepared to lead their companies down the road to 4K/UHD and, at their own pace, IP.”
