Grass Valley’s “Director”


GV Director (PRELIMINARY INFORMATION)Masterful Multitasking

Create, Collaborate, Control

The GV Director™ Nonlinear Live Production System is the ultimate multipurpose tool for live production. Integrating video switching, multi-layer effects, animated graphics, multiviewer monitoring, and more—all in a single, intuitive, and highly creative system, GV Director may pack small, but it sure produces big.

Step On Up: GV Director raises the creative bar for all event producers by removing the typical complexity of production and simplifying pre-production and production processes using one intuitive and dynamic platform. Starting from scratch or using a pre-built template, sophisticated productions are easy since elements can be created, packaged, and saved offline using a Mac or PC, then delivered live when needed. With the ability to collaborate and share work-in-progress, producing highly creative and valuable content is ensured.

Control Your Universe: GV Director brings it all together—switcher, video server, graphics generator, and multiviewer display—in a simple, powerful, and creative workspace for live monitoring and switching. GV Director’s interface gives you the choice of how you want to work. There’s a smart control surface with touchscreen panel, assignable buttons, a T-bar, and a multiviewer, as well as a keyboard, mouse, and computer monitor for maximum operational flexibility.

Small, Yet Mighty: While GV Director’s unmatched production capabilities are powerful on its own, it can also be teamed up with GV STRATUS® nonlinear production tools to add ingest, logging, content management, NLE integration, and router control. Its compact form factor boosts deployment flexibility and makes GV Director ideal for various environments
