Australian Broadcasting Corporation selects Grass
Valley for nationwide multi-year news equipment upgrade

Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, has entered into a contract with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation to provide one of the largest single system technology upgrades ever undertaken in Australia. The long-term project represents a major technology refresh and replacement in its studios across all Australian states.

The cornerstone of the system will be Grass Valley's GV STRATUS Video Production and Content Management System solutions that include EDIUS Nonlinear Editing Software, K2 Summit 3G Media Servers and other Grass Valley core technologies. NETIA will provide NETIA Radio-Assist 8, while the Associated Press will provide its AP ENPS 7 scripting system. Both will be deeply integrated into the GV STRATUS system.

The process involved a multi-year tender process and negotiation covering nine separate aspects based on a detailed and exhaustive evaluation of available technology and vendors. After careful consideration as well as both a testing phase and a proof of concept phase, Grass Valley was selected as the exclusive solution provider.

The installation will be implemented over two and a half years in each of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's major news and current affairs facilities throughout the country. Grass Valley will be responsible for all facets of the design, planning, implementation, commissioning, training and ongoing support of all systems.

With a number of critical aspects to the implementation, the project is a partnership between Grass Valley as the systems integrator, NETIA and the Associated Press. This is the first time these two technology providers have been involved in such a major partnership with Grass Valley, which will include a total refresh/replacement of systems for TV news, radio news and scripting creation. Grass Valley, along with its two partners, will be rolling out the new technology across Australia beginning in August of this year after a detailed design phase has been completed.
