K2 Edge is a robust and proven Linux-based, software-centric, multi-platform playout system with a purpose-built, high availability architecture for mission-critical 24/7 playout applications
Multichannel, integrated, automated playout is the next evolution in the program playout market segment. While traditional playout solutions take advantage of IT-based technologies to control separate components, it is only when all the applications—asset management, channel design, media playout, and automation—are designed to work together from the ground up, can further workflow efficiencies be realized.
While there are benefits for some facilities who have invested in traditional playout automation to continue with that approach, it is too expensive and unnecessarily complex for many of the new players coming online. A fully integrated system offers tremendous benefits, the least of which being lower initial capital cost. Total cost of ownership is also reduced by streamlining the playout workflow as each tool—server, graphics, master control, and the automation system itself—is seamlessly integrated and purpose-built to work together.
The Grass Valley™ K2 Edge™ range of multichannel, integrated, automated playout solutions is available in three levels of capability:
K2 Edge Express—for entry-level channels with minimal graphics needs.
K2 Edge Pro—for main-line channels with more sophisticated graphics such as picture-in-picture.
K2 Edge Elite—offers switching for up to four HD sources and multichannel 2D and 3D graphics, complete with DVE moves including credit squeeze.
K2 Edge grows with you and your operation. You can easily migrate, via a software license, to any of the levels of capability within the K2 Edge range.
