NVP Optimizes OB Fleet for 4K UHD and HDR with Live Production Solutions from Grass Valley

MONTREAL, March 18, 2019 Italian production specialist NVP has selected a wide range of live production solutions from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, for an upgrade to its outside broadcast (OB) fleet to support growing viewer demand for 4K UHD and HDR content. Installed in NVPs OB4 and newly launched OB6 vehicles, this robust enhancement strengthens NVPs position as a leader in live production in Europe.

Both trucks are equipped with Grass Valleys 4K UHD and HDR-capable, Kahuna 9600 production switcher, Kaleido multiviewers, Densit modular infrastructure, Sirius 840 router and KudosPro converters. These solutions were chosen for their excellent picture quality, flexibility and exceptional resilience. The powerful 4K UHD and HDR capability of the Kahuna 9600 and its seamless integration with the Sirius 840 router, together deliver a completely scalable path to all functionality and format requirements all critical factors for NVP.

Viewers have long judged video content by the quality of images on their screens, which is why were always pursuing the next breakthrough in technology, setting a benchmark for the highest quality live productions. Our customers know they can rely on us to meet shifting demands, like the rise of 4K UHD and HDR, and enable them to efficiently deliver the content their viewers want, said Natalino Pintabona, chief executive officer at NVP. Having collaborated with Grass Valley over the years, we knew from past experiences and successes that they were the logical choice for this important project. We now have a robust set of solutions that enable us to meet the increasingly complex production needs for live sports and entertainment broadcasts. The Grass Valley workflow also drives greater operational efficiency, helping us work smarter so we can make the most effective use of our resources.

The projects system integration, design and build was provided by Video Progetti, a leading Italian systems integrator and long-term Grass Valley channel partner.

It was crucial for us to future-proof these first-class trucks with the best and latest technologies that could support live 4K UHD/HDR productions, added Carlo Struzzi, chief executive officer at Video Progetti. When it came to sourcing critical elements like production switchers, routers and multiviewers, we knew to look no further than to Grass Valley. These solutions are helping make NVPs OB vans a model in technical and operational efficiency for the industry.

Its imperative that broadcasters are equipped with the right tools and technologies that enable them to meet the growing expectations of viewers, said Tim Banks, vice president of sales, EMEA, Grass Valley. Were proud to be working with NVP helping them to deliver the highest quality live productions with a rock-solid and future-proof solution for their OB fleet.

NVP plans to launch a third 4K UHD and HDR-enabled OB van in 2020, as it continues to expand its operations both in Italy and across other markets.
