Danish Facility House Switches To Kayak

Looking to support its growing client base with the latest digital video production equipment, a leading independent facility house in Copenhagen, has upgraded the control rooms of two of its main production studios with two new Grass Valley Kayak video production switchers – one HD and one SD .
Studios A/S's first installation, Kayak SD, was completed in the fall of 2009 for a new game show. Once production was successfully completed, the company’s management decided to order a second Kayak switcher, an HD version, to support the upgrade of its largest studio to full digital operations.
"The Kayak is very competitively priced, is compact in size, and it comes standard with all the features we use most," said Peter Seehausen Chief Operating Officer of Studios A/S. "Also, we know that our investment is future-proofed. Once we decide to move the first control room to high-definition production, the switcher can be easily upgraded."
For companies like Studios A/S, which rents its studio facilities for local game shows and all types of television programmes and commercial productions, the Kayak switcher offers sophisticated digital video switching functionality in a highly affordable package.
Ideally suited to live production, the Grass Valley Kayak production switcher product line includes a powerful M/E architecture with four keyers per bank and eight channels of built-in digital effects. It also provides plenty of power for compositing keys such as logos and graphics. In addition, each keyer in the M/E can optionally perform chroma keys using the Grass Valley Chromatte advanced chroma keyer. Clips are identified by user-specified names for easy recall and can be played back at standard or variable speeds, either forward or backwards.
