HDNet relies on Grass Valley Kalypso for HD blast off coverage
HDNet used the Grass Valley Kalypso HD video production center switcher from Thomson for its HD production of the Space Shuttle Discovery’s blast off from Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL.
To cover the liftoff, HDNet installed the Kalypso production switcher, which handles SD and HD digital production, inside NASA's TV production control room. The Kalypso HD system served as the central hub, through which all of the live 1080i HD format video signals passed. Ten HD cameras strategically located throughout the NASA Space Center, as well several NASA cameras, were seamlessly mixed with multichannel audio sources into one cohesive production.
