Grass Valley showcases GV Orbit

GV Orbit is a single, consolidated, overarching configuration, control and monitoring package specifically designed for the dynamic orchestration of broadcast media networks, whether they be SDI, hybrid or pure IP. Its underlying architecture, however, is targeted at open standards-based IP systems with many features and functions specifically crafted to make IP easy.

Dynamic Orchestration is GV Orbit’s core strength that differentiates it from competitive systems. The ability to build, configure and change systems on-the-fly, whether it’s adding/removing devices or simply changing a name, is hugely powerful. In today’s cost-conscious world, fast and efficient deployment and re-purposing of systems for alternative scenarios or productions is a key requirement.
