“It’s exciting to be working with Grass Valley, a company that continually delivers sophisticated and flexible technology solutions for the live production arena, especially live sports,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. “By integrating our hardware systems, K2 Dyno can now deliver even higher quality pictures so that replay operators can tell deeper, more creative stories.”
The partnership comes on the heels of additional upgrades to K2 Dyno that were announced at the NAB Show 2014, including 4K pan/zoom support, 6X ultra slow-motion playout (from the LDX XtremeSpeed and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed cameras), 6×2 I/Os, and an optional package for sports graphics and telestration with the tOG-Sports application developed by RT Software. All of these features are controlled from a single K2 Dyno Replay Controller touchscreen. K2 Dyno also includes new AnySpeed dynamic playback algorithm, which automatically guarantees smooth playback during transition from any speed from zero to 200 percent and in speed transitions for ultra slow-motion 6X playout. It also integrates with Grass Valley’s latest high-speed cameras and the K2 Summit 3G Production Client, and it is compatible with higher resolutions and frame rates.
