GV Partners With AJA To Enhance K2 Dyno System

News Image
Grass Valley has announced a partnership with AJA Video Systems that will provide 4K enhancements to its K2 Dyno Replay System. Grass Valley is integrating AJA's Corvid Ultra and TruScale scaling hardware into the K2 Dyno to drive real-time pan and zoom to allow HD extraction from 4K acquisition with DynoZoom.

Corvid Ultra video capture cards are part of AJA's family of video and audio I/O products to facilitate high-bandwidth and high frame rate workflows. They support 2K and 4K as well as scaling capabilities for all resolutions through 4K.
With support for high frame rates (48p, 50p and 60p), 4K workflows and onboard debayering, Corvid Ultra video capture cards provide performance for critical applications. Its TruScale arbitrary scaling engine allows up or down scaling of any raster ranging from tiny web video up to 4K. TruScale is real-time and key-frameable, allowing motion video to be resized while maintaining image quality.
"It's exciting to be working with Grass Valley, a company that continually delivers sophisticated and flexible technology solutions for the live production arena, especially live sports," said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. "By integrating our hardware systems, K2 Dyno can now deliver even higher quality pictures so that replay operators can tell deeper, more creative stories."
The partnership follows additional upgrades to K2 Dyno that were announced at this year's NAB Show, including 4K pan/zoom support, 6X ultra slow-motion playout (from the LDX XtremeSpeed and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed cameras), 6x2 I/Os and an optional package for sports graphics and telestration with the tOG-Sports application developed by RT Software.
All features are controlled from a single K2 Dyno Replay Controller touchscreen. K2 Dyno also includes new AnySpeed dynamic playback algorithm, which enables smooth playback during transition from any speed from zero to 200 percent and in speed transitions for ultra slow-motion 6X playout. It also integrates with Grass Valley's latest high-speed cameras and the K2 Summit 3G Production Client, and it is compatible with higher resolutions and frame rates.
"Our K2 Dyno Replay System is widely deployed within the live sports segment and is the go-to system for replay operators around the world. By incorporating AJA's unique hardware systems into K2 Dyno, our customers can now take advantage of a turnkey solution that gives them the ability to take advantage of stunning 4K images in HD and in real-time.
"With these added features, there is no other replay system on the market as powerful and comprehensive as K2 Dyno," commented Mike Cronk, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley.
