The newly combined portfolio of Grass Valley and SAM solutions gives news professionals access to the industry’s widest selection of tools and technologies for conquering the news marketplace.
GV STRATUS 6.0 remains the most complete and versatile application environment for nonlinear production with the addition of enhanced news orchestration capabilities, including integrated social media publishing, monitoring and tracking. In addition, increasing availability of cloud-based tools and virtualization are having a significant impact on the newsroom, and Grass Valley is embracing this trend across the portfolio.
GV STRATUS 6.0 – boasts a suite of tools including a new web client for access to GV STRATUS from anywhere on any device and support of the GV I/O SDI ingest server which features a COTS-based engine built on standard IT hardware.
