To expand beyond digital video and into live production, Tencent Video required solution upgrades to meet its new content creation needs.

“The type and quality of content our viewers expect is changing, and utilizing solutions that are ready to handle new formats and channels is critical to keeping up with competitors,” highlights David Zhao, team manager, Tencent Video. “Though we brought in an entire system of new solutions at once, the high-level integration between Grass Valley’s solutions, intuitive user interfaces and innovative features made for easy operation from the start.”
“Tencent Video’s expansion into new content channels and new formats is a huge step to staying ahead in the endless, and increasingly fast-paced, content creation race,” explains Somu Patil, vice president of sales, Asia, Grass Valley. “Their decision to upgrade to Grass Valley IP solutions will only further their efforts to produce and distribute modern, innovative programming.”
