The Grass Valley Trinix NXT router has a 512x1024 asymmetrical frame and Grass Valley’s new CleanFlow architecture. Trinix NXT boards are compatible with existing Trinix frames, making for a seamless 3 Gbps upgrade path for existing Trinix users. The company will show a new GeckoFlex 1080p 3G-SDI D/A conversion card for the GeckoFlex platform.

Also, new at NAB is the ViBE EM3100 HD MPEG-4 4:2:2 contribution encoder and the combined MPEG-2/MPEG-4 encoding for the existing ViBE EM1000 and EM2000 encoders.

A new version of Grass Valley Ignite software (v5.3) will be demonstrated with new features and functionality for single-operator, multicamera productions. NAB will also see new versions of Grass Valley’s Aurora (6.5) and EDIUS (5.1) HD editing software packages. There’s new integration with the Grass Valley K2 media servers and improved workflow for Final Cut Pro users.
