Industry Awards Recognise Grass Valley Ignite

At this year's NAB 2010 show, an innovator in professional video introduced a new addition to its Ignite automated production system.
Ignite Konnect, launched by Grass Valley, was well received by both convention attendees and the industry trade press. In fact, the new Konnect, which allows users of the Grass Valley Kalypso and Kayenne Video Production Centre systems to easily transition to live production automation, was recognised by two of the industry's most prestigious publications as a best-of-show solution that promises to have an immediate and positive effect on the industry in a variety of ways.
Ignite Konnect was recognised with a "Pick Hit" award from Broadcast Engineering magazine and a "Star" award from TV Technology magazine. The staffs of both publications cited the Ignite Konnect software suite as one of the most outstanding and innovative technologies developed and shown at this year's NAB 2010 show.
The Grass Valley Ignite Konnect system leverages the proven performance attributes of its highly successful predecessor, the Ignite automated production system, which to date have been installed in more than 100 facilities worldwide.
With the capability to automate as much or as little of a broadcaster's or production studio's workflow as is necessary Ignite Konnect is designed for live production automation applications where a customer already has a Grass Valley Kalypso or Kayenne switcher in place. It requires little or no change to existing switcher effects. Ignite Konnect also interfaces seamlessly with the Grass Valley MediaFuse content re-purposing and multi-distribution system, providing a complete multi-media production and distribution workflow for both live and on-demand web and mobile content.
