The Grass Valley K2 media server from Thomson is now being bundled with FastBreak NXT XPress automation software from Sundance Digital, in a new marketing relationship.
A typical FastBreak NXT XPress system consists of a Media Prep Station to manage communication with the traffic department and to load content into the Grass Valley K2 server. It works alongside one or more Air Control Stations to manage actual on-air playback. Each Air Control Station may be configured to handle up to four primary server outputs (playlists), plus a simultaneous back-up ("protect") decoder for each playlist.
The Grass Valley K2 media server, with its advanced client-server architecture, can be configured with from two to more than 100 channels. This includes both SD and HD or a mixture of the two formats.
