NVP picks Grass Valley’s solutions kit to develop NVP Innovation HUB at Cologno, Milano

NVP organizes NVP Innovation HUB by using open standard IP and AMPP SaaS platform of Grass Valley

The Californian company Grass Valley®, specialized in cloud, hardware, and hybrid solutions for live production, has just announced that NVP tested and developed its NVP Innovation Hub based on open standard SMPTE ST 2110 with GV Orbit® orchestration,  using Grass Valley’s AMPP® SaaS platform, redundant GV Fabric IP switching, a Kahuna® 9600 production switcher with a 3 M/E Maverik control panel, a Kaleido-IP™ multiviewer, and Audio Live for up to 2048×2048 audio routing of AES67 IP streams.

NVP, Italian broadcast service supplier, set its NVP Innovation HUB with support of Video Progetti, Grass Valley distributor and system integrator, which maintained responsibility for the integration of all Grass Valley equipment.

As a Grass Valley customer for more than 10 years, with over 100 LDX® cameras and six Kahuna production switchers, NVP was intrigued by the potential of AMPP and its seamless ability to be used with software- and hardware-based products to produce tier 1 and tier 2 events for their customers.

NVP is planning to replicate its Cologno model in its Rome, Naples, and Messina centers as well. Currently, at least one match per day is being managed remotely, with the goal of managing between three and five matches per day by the end of the Serie B 2022-23 championship. NVP plans on increasing even further for the 2023-24 season.

The NVP Innovation Hub consists of two production studios, six dubbing rooms, and an OB VAN gateway. The gateway area allows for quick integration of any OB Van from the NVP fleet into the Hub’s production studios. Productions can be done in formats ranging from SD SDR to UHD HDR WCG.

Using GV Orbit orchestration, NVP routes sources coming from any venue to their production control room or to a number of other production control rooms based on AMPP on-premises and cloud technology.

AMPP provides increased scalability and flexibility in production, which NVP has capitalized on to provide an extremely cost-effective remote production solution for smaller sporting events and has proven crucial to allow NVP to augment their on-premises productions tools with cloud resources.

“NVP, as with other AMPP platform users, has discovered the flexibility and scalability that our unique SaaS and on-prem live production solution provides,” said Tim Banks, CRO for Grass Valley. “NVP can now easily handle existing and new clients’ production requests, with just a few clicks of a mouse.”

The Hub also includes HiWay Media, part of the NVP group of companies, which owns and operates a specialized OTT platform for sports. HiWay Media allows NVP to help their customers to produce and immediately publish the content to increase monetization.
