GV STRATUS One Pro features a compact 2 RU footprint, handling the entire production process from recording, transcoding and storage to streaming, editing and playout.
Grass Valley is launching GV STRATUS One Pro, a production suite that allows content creators to be faster and more efficient with a small- footprint solution. The new platform is one of two new additions to the GV STRATUS One product family, alongside the new GV STRATUS One Express.
Promising to enhance the production workflow, GV STRATUS One allows collaborative working across every aspect of the media workflow. Production teams can now harness more storage, processing power and rendering abilities to deliver compelling content to multiple linear and digital delivery platforms with a single click. The Pro and Express options also include groups of licenses with the users’ choice of editor whether it be Grass Valley’s EDIUS software included or Adobe Premiere connect licenses.
The powerful automated rules engine and social media management tools mean production teams can easily manage, organise and distribute content to a variety of platforms. GV STRATUS One is suited for small broadcast operations, regional and satellite stations, event venues and houses of worship. GV STRATUS One is easy to deploy, enabling a fully operational production environment within hours.
An integrated hardware-software solution, GV STRATUS One Pro includes over 500 hours of 100Mbit storage, eliminating the need for additional equipment and saving on time. Some of the key features of the new GV STRATUS solution includes four channels of playout and record, SDI ingest and playout (720P & 1080i), editing licenses included (EDIUS or Adobe), automated rules engine, multiple simultaneous users, RMI and archive support, social media and CMA management.
Commenting on the new product, Peter Semerak, Grass Valley’s Vice President of Production, said: “Production teams across the board, regardless of size, are now managing a rapidly growing volume of content across a wide range of functions and channels. This can add huge amounts of complexity to operations, often requiring several individual systems to support each aspect of the workflow — and the technical know-how to set up and manage them. With GV STRATUS One Pro we’re giving customers the opportunity to streamline their production workflows, providing more power and flexibility to meet viewers’ demands for more content.”
