Grass Valley Playout Xpress - Usuario

Playout Xpress, a low-cost, customizable, entry-level system, is Grass Valley’s latest venture.

Playout Xpress is a “simple, pre-commissioned” system that allows end users to define their specific requirements. The solution offers up to four playout channels and a “powerful and reliable feature set” that will provide customers with a “resilient” automation system at a “competitive” price.

GV Playout Xpress has been designed to be deployed by the customer in as little as one day. Thus, it seeks to adapt to changing audience trends, enabling its customers to “quickly” create more content, through more emerging sources and social media.

Solution for a dynamic market

Karl Mehring, Grass Valley’s senior business director of playout, detailed the keys to Grass Valley’s new launch: “In today’s dynamically shifting media market, customers need to engage with global audiences that can no longer be reached through one or two platforms. Playout is crucial to enabling customers to spin services up and down quickly in the most cost efficient way possible”.

“Our portfolio of playout solutions is designed to support everything from high density, enterprise-level applications to cloud-native systems that meet the needs of temporary pop up channels, and we are excited to launch Playout Xpress to further expand our offering,” he concludes.
