June 28, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO: MLB Network, the 24/7 cable
television home of Major League Baseball, available in approximately 70 million
homes, has purchased a new Grass Valley Kayenne Video Production Center
switcher to serve at the heart of a newly upgraded high-definition video
production control room to support its Emmy Award-winning flagship studio
program, “MLB Tonight.”
In January, MLB Network took delivery of a large frame (4.5 M/E) Kayenne system
with a 4 M/Epanel. The Kayenne now installed includes: 96 inputs, 48 outputs,
six keyers per M/E channel (30 total), FlexiKey (programmable clean feed mode),
and DoubleTake (split M/E mode). DoubleTake effectively increases the number of
M/Es to a total of up to 10, within an 8 RU frame.
A Grass Valley customer since it launched in January 2009, MLB
Network’s facility also features a collaborative editing environment
based on 15 Grass Valley Aurora editing systems and multiple Grass Valley K2 HD
media servers, configured as a flexible and highly reliable storage area
network, and is one of the largest K2/Aurora systems in the world.
