Grass Valley Announces GV K-Frame On AMPP


Montreal-based Grass Valley has announced GV K-Frame on AMPP, Grass Valley’s newly launched application suite for its Agile Media Processing Platform. The solution delivers a SaaS version of the K-Frame switcher engine — running on AMPP.

According to the company, GV K-Frame on AMPP further expands the recently introduced GV Media Universe ecosystem, providing operators with the creative resources needed for professional media production in the cloud.

With three M/Es and four keyers with 2D DPM per M/E, the solution uses the same UI and control surfaces as any other K-Frame solution. Stills and animations with fill/key including transparency also provide a polished production look that is easy to create, store and recall at the touch of a button from the hundreds of E-MEMs and Macros available.

The company added that customers using AMPP-connected solutions are discovering new operational models as shows are securely produced with cameras on location and production personnel wherever they live across the globe.

A recent event had cameras in various locations around Europe feeding back to an instance of AMPP located in an AWS data center on the east coast of the United States. The TD switching the live show was in California.
