(Montreal--October 28, 2014) TV Cultura, headquartered in São Paulo and part of the Fundação Padre Anchieta, is updating its production workflow system with a full production suite from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand. The suite, which includes GV STRATUS nonlinear media production tools, will help TV Cultura get breaking news out more quickly and improve its operations management.
With four servers and 12 total channels, the addition of GV STRATUS enables TV Cultura to deploy a streamlined workflow for increased efficiencies and effective collaboration across its broadcast environment. TV Cultura has one of the largest K2 and K2-SAN production systems in Brazil. The upgrade is expected to be complete in December 2014.
“By going with GV STRATUS from Grass Valley, we’re getting much more than an upgrade for our production system,” said Gilvani Moletta, technology director at TV Cultura. “In addition to improved connectivity and GV STRATUS being a future-ready application, we chose this solution because it will also help us reduce operational costs and create a more agile production environment.”
Starting in 2007, TV Cultura installed the following solutions from Grass Valley in several phases to support the improvements to its production workflow system:
- K2 Summit 3G production client, which allows users to take complete control of live event workflows and broadcast applications
- K2 Summit production media servers, which deliver file-based infrastructure and high-performance file operations that run simultaneously, allowing for better workflows
- GV STRATUS, an application framework for nonlinear media production that combines production tools, device control and content management into a single platform. TV Cultura’s GV STRATUS framework includes the following number of seats:
- 10 GV STRATUS Express
- 15 EDIUS XS-GV STRATUS Flex
- 3 GV STRATUS Pro
- 4 GV STRATUS Elite
- 10 EDIUS Elite
“We’re excited that TV Cultura, with the biggest K2 and K2-SAN system in Brazil, will be adding GV STRATUS to its broadcast environment,” said Cristiano Barbieri, key account manager, Brazil, Grass Valley. “This is a great opportunity for Grass Valley to show the region of Brazil how GV STRATUS can enable the efficient preparation and delivery of content for publishing to digital media platforms.”
