Bel TV Selects Grass Valley Solutions For Belarus

Bel TV, the national TV and radio broadcasting company of the Republic of Belarus, has chosen solutions from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, to take its live news and video production capabilities to the next level. The company purchased GV Stratus for video production and content management, Edius for editing, K2 servers for storage, and Densité infrastructure components for signal processing. The equipment was supplied, installed and commissioned by Offtech, a local systems integrator.

“We chose to do business with Grass Valley because we know we will benefit from the company’s innovative solutions which help us save money and create powerful media content,” said Aliaksandr Hryblo, chief technology officer, Bel TV. “Our goal is to broadcast the most urgent and interesting news in accordance with international requirements of quality and speed. We appreciate Grass Valley’s customer-oriented approach and look forward to expanding our mutual cooperation with its talented technical team as well as our system integrator Offtech.”

This is Bel TV’s first major project with Grass Valley and Offtech. The installation spanned both the editing complex and the studio at Bel TV.

Gv Stratus is a modular video production and content management toolset, based on K2 media servers and storage, which embraces content ingest, editing, distribution and archive and retrieval management.

EDIUS is Grass Valley’s editing software, designed for production and broadcast news. Version 8 features multiple new capabilities, including refreshed GUI, Canon XF-AVC support, a new workflow clip management tool, accelerated 4K H.264 playback and an aggressive development program to introduce many new creative tools over the coming months. Edius offers best-in-class camera support and includes a new GV browser tool to manage video and still image content on your PC, prior to importing into Edius for editing.

Grass Valley’s K2 platform offers a unified infrastructure to acquire, manage, package and deliver content across a diverse range of broadcast media requirements and applications, including 4K and IP.
