NEP has purchased 26 Grass Valley K-Frame modular video processing engines to be used with Kayenne and Karrera Video Production Centers to upgrade more than 30 of its OB trucks across the company’s fleet.
The K-Frames will be delivered over the next three years.
K-Frame measures in at 7 RU high with up to 5 M/Es (options available for 9 M/E frame and 14 RU high), allowing it to fit into tight spaces in OB trucks. The video processing engine is compatible with both SD and HD formats, with full 3G 1080p50/60 HD.
“The confidence that NEP has shown in selecting K-Frame is a testament to the renewed commitment grass Valley brings to supporting its broadcast customers across all production segments,” Tim Thorsteinson, president and CEO of Grass Valley, said in a statement.
Grass Valley showed off the latest version of K-Frame at the 2013 IBC show in September in Amsterdam. The latest version includes internal video clip storage and playback, greater macro flexibility and M/E multi-previewer function.
K-Frame is found in more than 75 production facilities worldwide today.
