Lopez Tonight Taps Grass Valley for HD Production
Equipment from Grass Valley is being used behind the scenes to produce the new TBS late night talk show, “Lopez Tonight” in HD.

Sweetwater Video Productions has set up a doublewide production trailer outside the studio in Burbank, Calif. and outfitted it with a Grass Valley Kayak 2/5 M/E HD video production switcher and GV K2 Summit production client server.

Pre-recorded footage is acquired in the field as an MPEG-2 file using XDCAM HD (@50 Mbps) cameras. The file-based workflow facilitates the efficient production of video segments and fast turnaround times by editing in the same XDCAM 50 format with Avid Media Composer workstations.

The sequence is then sent across network via a Transfer Engine and automatically imported into the K2 Summit server as a natively supported codec. Using the Grass Valley AppCenterPro file management applications suite, the segments are played to air from a four-channel Summit server. The Kayak is used to switch all of the various video sources for the live-to-tape show, including graphics and a mix of live and pre-recorded material.
