D2 Video Produções Commits To Grass Valley For New HD Sports Production Facilities

Across South America, Grass Valley continues to be the vendor of choice for live high-definition production.
As the most recent example, D2 Video Produções, a premiere live production company in São Paulo, Brazil, has made a significant investment in new HD production equipment from Grass Valley to meet the growing need for high-quality sports and other types of production.
D2 is building a brand new high-definition OB van and updating its HD studio production infrastructure with new Grass Valley HD cameras, 3X SloMo cameras, slow-motion replay systems, video routers, audio routers and HD video production switchers.
The significant order also includes a comprehensive three-year service contract that will provide D2 Video with warranty extension for all Grass Valley products.
Junior Danieletto, Owner and Executive Director of D2 Video Produções, said: "As a steady customer for many years, we have always appreciated the value, performance and local customer support we get with Grass Valley production equipment and that's why we came back to Grass Valley for this new OB van and studio. These new facilities will allow us to support our major clients and local broadcasters and help them to produce the best looking HD programming possible. That's why they work with us in the first place."
Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Grass Valley, said: "D2 Video Produções is one of the pioneers in the South American region in terms of pushing the envelope of what can be accomplished with digital video production and that's why they have been so successful.
"This new order affirms their place as a leader in the live production marketplace and with the Grass Valley equipment they have purchased they can now produce a wide variety of programs."
The new OB production vehicle - a fully-equipped Grass Valley HD unit - will allow D2 to meet the growing need for high-quality sports and content production in the Brazilian market. The new truck will feature 12 LDK 8000 Elite HD Multi-Format WorldCam cameras with triax adapters, an LDK 8300 Live Super SloMo camera system, a Kayak digital production switcher, three K2 Dyno and K2 Summit slow-motion replay systems and a Concerto Series HD video routers (96x96 I/O matrix).
The new HD studio production infrastructure being built by D2 Video Produções includes five Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite multiformat HD cameras on triax cabling and a Kayak HD production switcher with a Grass Valley Jupiter router control system, an Acappella multi-format utility routing system and several conversion modules from the Grass Valley GeckoFlex Signal Processing system.
A long-time Grass Valley customer, D2 Video Produções currently uses a standard-definition OB van with ten Grass Valley LDK 400 cameras, a Kayak DD2 switcher, Concerto Series SD router (64x64) with Jupiter Control System, and numerous signal conversion modules. The company also operates a satellite uplink OB van with several Grass Valley ViBE encoders.
