San Francisco, California – Grass Valley live production technologies were central to the broadcast of the 54th Annual Grammy Awards (Grammys) telecast on February 12.
The programme was produced LIVE in the 1080i HD format by
mobile production company NEP Broadcasting for CBS and the E!
Entertainment Television channel. NEP Broadcasting, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has used Grass Valley technologies for many years to present the Grammys.
NEP’s Denali Summit HD truck was on-site to handle the main awards broadcast on CBS while its ND4 rig was used to cover the Red Carpet portion of the event for E!. Both trucks carry a Grass Valley Kalypso HD Video Production Center switcher, a Trinix (192×160 and 160×128, respectively) HD-SDI video router, and a wide variety of signal processing modules from the Grass Valley GeckoFlex product line.
