Video Equipment Rentals (VER), a global rental house, has purchased two 4K-capable Grass Valley Kayenne Video Production Center switchers with K-Frame modular video processing engines for rental markets in the United States, Canada and Europe.
VER has served the broadcast and audio/visual markets for almost 30 years. The new Kayenne switchers complement the company’s extensive inventory of HD live production equipment, which includes several other Grass Valley switchers as well as Grass Valley cameras.
Recently, the new Kayenne switchers were used to capture the action at Roland Garros stadium in Paris for the French Open 2014. VER incorporated the Kayenne systems into fly-packs, which were then installed into cabins for use by the broadcasters on site.
The Kayenne switcher with K-Frame enables 4K production — putting VER ahead of its competition and giving its customers the flexibility to create all types of live productions.
Kayenne with K-Frame is a 1080p-capable switcher that can adapt to offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs, up to 9 M/Es with six keyers in every full M/E and now supports 4K/UHD in addition to SD, HD and 3G formats. The Kayenne is field upgradable, giving VER’s customers the ability to add features as the need arises.
