As part of its ongoing commitment to open standards architecture, Grass Valley has partnered with Marquis Broadcast to expand the functionality and capability of its GV STRATUS Nonlinear Media Production toolset and the K2 Summit media server. Grass Valley incorporates Marquis’ MEWS API services to enable the quick and easy exchange of files between GV STRATUS and Avid solutions, as well as other third-party products. Marquis’ technology is used to enable the interoperability with products requiring OP Atom file creation and additional file transfer types.
The MEWS API solution coupled with Grass Valley’s technology lets content creators transfer files back and forth between third-party solutions more quickly and simply, resulting in a huge time-savings for broadcasters.
GV STRATUS is a complete and versatile software-centric platform that lets users work in a truly nonlinear fashion. Its service-oriented architecture (SOA) allows customers to purchase, combine, and configure just the functional components they need to build and orchestrate the most efficient workflows for their unique production environments with GV STRATUS News, GV STRATUS Live, GV STRATUS Digital Media Platforms (DMP), and GV STRATUS Playout. A key benefit of GV STRATUS for the newsroom is its full compatibility with the MOS protocol, which allows it to interface with and take programming instructions from most newsroom computer systems. It also integrates with Grass Valley K2 media servers and storage to offer an expandable foundation for new applications and workflows.
