Ignite Automated Production System:


The Ignite integrated production solution is the industry's first and most complete link between the control room and the newsroom — one that provides an unmatched return on investment with single-operator capabilities. The leader in its class, Grass Valley Ignite allows a single operator to manage control room devices used to produce live newscasts and event programming. With Ignite technology, you'll easily control on-air timing, accommodate last-minute show changes and direct any type of production on the fly. Plus, you'll have more opportunities to repurpose content for digital multicasting and webcasts, increasing overall production value.

 
















 


  • Increase ROI: With Grass Valley Ignite's single workflow and multidistribution model, you can launch new digital multicast channels and webcast channels. You'll generate alternative revenue streams while also improving your on-air look and feel.

  • Increase efficiency: With a central point of management for control room devices, you can allocate more of your staff to the field, which translates into increased programming, 24-hour support of multicast channels, and delivery of real-time cut-ins.

 

  • Increase flexibility: When you implement the Ignite platform, you'll augment current HD capabilities, move to HD production directly or migrate from SD to HD whenever you're ready.
