Thomson Grass Valley Launches New Switcher
Thomson Grass Valley plans to roll out a new switcher, the 1 M/E Kayak at NAB2003. The digital production switcher targets live production, small corporate studios and editing applications. The introduction of the Kayak represents the first collaboration between the newly combined Grass Valley and Thomson Broadcast and Media Solutions engineering teams.

The Kayak switcher builds on Thomson Grass Valley's Zodiak and XtenDD digital video switcher lines and includes four keyers and machine control as well as a networking capability that lets several switchers to be combined and controlled via a single panel and offers a graphical users interface with a touch-screen display for ease of operation.

The 2-RU Kayak switcher is designed to be portable, lightweight and switchable at both SDI 525 and 625 line formats. It displays 16 inputs, five fixed outputs and 10 auxiliary busses along with an internal frame store that can hold clips and stills and function as a frame synchronizer.
