Grass Valley T2 HD Recording and Playout centre
What we think:
The T2 is a truly exceptional product. It's so much more than a VTR replacement. Sitting on a network, it shares HD content with editors and content creators who can also upload data for delivery from either of the T2's playout channels. HD video recording, multi-channel audio recording, support for all broadcast formats as well as cross-platform support make for a total media solution.
- 3 version available: T2 Express, T2 Pro & T2 Elite
- SD and HD audio / video Recording and Playout centre
- True HD support for HD productions - full 1920x1080 (60/50/24) resolution, 720p and 480i formats
- Three decks for the price of one – 1 record and 2 playback channels work independently and simultaneously
- Embedded audio (8 channels per SDI connection)
- AES/EBU audio supported
- Easy-to-use front panel interface
- Simple editing on-the-fly, including trimming, mark in/out and basic transition effects
The T2 iDDR is a:
- Complete and self-contained 2-channel SD/HD video playout centre
- Tapeless HD broadcast recorder and player
- Online clip editing and playout system
- Networked VTR that shares active media files with video editors
It has two playback channels and one record channel, all simultaneously and
independently available, supporting full 1920x1080 (60/50/24) resolution, as well as 720p and 480i formats.
You can ingest live video on the record channel, play edited content on one playback channel, and edit sub-clips on the second play channel, all at the same time. This makes the T2 perfect for live stage events, sports scoreboards, and corporate events.
Front panel controls
The T2 includes familiar controls that you would expect in any conventional VTR: a shuttle-jog knob, play, pause, fast forward and rewind. But, unlike a conventional VTR, transition effects are integrated.
For additional user control the T2 has a large, high resolution touchscreen which also doubles as a full preview monitor for each playback channel.
