Grass Valley Equips Canal Judicial With Improved Workflow Solutions
Canal Judicial provides viewers in Mexico with a firsthand look at the news from the country’s Supreme Court. With dozens of live cases and educational programs being broadcast each day, the channel needed solutions that could expand with its growing content demands. GV STRATUS Video Production and Content Management Systems, EDIUS Workgroup 8 Nonlinear Editing Software, K2 10G RAID Storage systems and K2 Summit 3G Transmission Clients from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, will manage Canal Judicial’s current and future production workflows.
GV STRATUS Express and GV STRATUS Elite HR help the network keep up with its programming and manage multiple news production workflows quickly and efficiently since users can tailor the solution’s production tools based on function. GV STRATUS efficiently handles the entire content creation and delivery process across multiple digital media platforms and the video production and content management system includes full integration with EDIUS. Both in the courtroom and in the studio, EDIUS Workgroup 8 offers more formats and more resolutions in real-time, providing the ability to edit anything, anywhere. For post-production on Canal Judicial’s live broadcast and news programs, the editing software offers real-time, no-render editing of all popular SD, HD and 4K formats.
GV STRATUS and EDIUS are also fully integrated with K2 10G RAID Storage and K2 Summit 3G Transmission Clients so that finished content can be efficiently stored and distributed. The K2 10G RAID Storage System is fully scalable with SAS storage drives, 8 Gb/s Fiber Channel hardware RAID controllers, redundant connectivity, hot-swappable power supplies and high-performance bandwidth delivery. K2 Summit Transmission Client includes two HD/SD bidirectional channels and two HD/SD playout channels for configuration variety, as well as up/down/cross-conversion capability with full AFD, for worry-free migration from SD to HD.
“Canal Judicial’s content is not only plentiful, but it’s diverse too. These were both important factors in determining the best solutions to manage the network’s news production needs,” says Nahuel Villegas, vice president, Caribbean and Latin America, Grass Valley.
