Grass Valley assists OB companies, broadcasters with HD Torino coverage

A number of leading outside broadcast specialists are using Grass Valley multi-format high-definition (HD) production equipment and systems to bring the 20th Olympic Winter Games viewers worldwide.

The opening ceremony in Torino’s Olympic Stadium Feb. 10 was beamed to the United States in HD by UK-based outside broadcast specialist NEP Visions. With two trucks in Italy for the Olympics -each using numerous Grass Valley LDK 6000 cameras, Grass Valley Kalypso HD Video Production Center switchers, Grass Valley HD routers and Grass Valley HD modular products- NEP Visions has covered figure skating and ice hockey and will be used for the closing ceremonies.

In addition, several Grass Valley Kayak HD video production switchers, some shipped as flyaway kits, are being used by major U.S. and international television networks to supplement their HD coverage of the action.
