At NAB, Grass Valley will announce the next generation of its GV Director Integrated Nonlinear Live Production System.
The updated product includes enhanced real-time streaming to reach a broader audience, second operator assist for an improved workflow and enhanced real-time data feeds and graphics support, which allows operators to add new and changing content at increased speeds during live productions.
GV Director’s enhanced real-time data feed will now support additional third-party data feeds that simplify and automate graphics creation during a live production.
The second operator assist feature adds value to live production workflows with graphic creation, implementing innovative production elements or interacting with third-party real-time data feeds—all from a single interface.
GV Director can also now stream content in real-time, avoiding the need for downstream conversion.
The device offers functional complexity of video switching, multi-layer effects, animated graphics and multiviewer monitoring from a single system. It can be teamed up with GV STRATUS to add ingest, logging, content management, NLE integration and router control.
GV Director is a software-centric, scalable solution that leverages the cost and performance of commodity IT components. It provides unlimited M/E buses, keyers, 2D/3D graphics, localized clip storage and the ability to handle baseband and file-based sources.
