Until GV STRATUS 6.0, K2 media servers were required for GV STRATUS to ingest media assets. Now, for the first time, GV I/O provides the ability to build a non-K2 Summit-based GV STRATUS solution with real-time video capture on commodity IT hardware.
As the industry shifts to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product, broadcasters and media organizations need a solution that meets their baseband ingest needs in a cost-effective manner. GV I/O addresses this demand by providing an ingest solution with no proprietary hardware requirements, providing the agility and versatility necessary in the evolving news production business environment.
Grass Valley’s GV I/O provides a server solution on standard IT hardware (certified and provided by Grass Valley) with baseband I/O provided as a standard ingest solution. With redundant power supplies, hot-swappable drives, flash-based storage and RAID-5, GV I/O is designed for on-demand reliability. CPU utilization is roughly 50% of other servers in the market, giving you valuable cost-efficiency in an easy to deploy solution.
