Crispin Offers Broadcast Automation Packages for Grass Valley Servers

Crispin, a provider of broadcast automation systems, has released a series of new pre-configured equipment packages for small to mid-sized broadcasters and content providers that combine Crispin's RapidPlayX software with the entire family of Grass Valley broadcast servers. These new pre-configured packages--Crispac-K2, Crispac-XP and Crispac-M--have been developed and priced for Grass Valley customers in the U.S., Canada and South America.

Each package includes Crispin's RapidPlayX software, which allows complete control of multiple play-to-air channels as well as automatic record schedules. RapidPlayX automatically loads daily program and record schedules for 7/27 operations and instantly updates events when new material is available on Grass Valley video servers.

The Grass Valley family of servers include the SD 4 channel M-series with DVCPRO and MPEG support, the Profile XP with 2-8 channels and SAN configurations up to 64 channels for both SD and HD, and the new K2 Media Server with its advanced client-server architecture that range from 2 to more than 100 channels for both SD and HD.
