Grande Vitesse Systems Introduces its Broadcast Automation Software Solution for Live Production EnvironmentsControl multiple event lists, create and manipulate play lists and play back QuickTime native media files (May 02, 2006)
The GVS Broadcast Automation Software solution (BASS) can be used as standalone software on a wide variety of PowerMac G5 products, but is specifically suited as a complete end-to-end solution bundled with the GVS90004NXU, GVS90004NXU VTR, GVS90004XU, and GVS90001U-IS. Integrate these fully tested products with your favorite QuickTime compatible editing system and you can direct your playlist to BASS, allowing you to control multiple event lists (program streams), easily create and manipulate play lists and play back QuickTime native media files in a live production environment; and without the need to render the entire project, you will be able to broadcast instantaneously.
BASSs basic function is to build playlists and organize and initiate the events associated with each play list. A sequence of events can be built that can be controlled by keyboard, GPI closure, time, or event duration. Events or groups of events can be easily and quickly moved by simply selecting the events you want to move and cut and pasting them. Up to 20 additional event types will be added to the "Events" menu when GVS Broadcast Automation Software is configured for use with external equipment or the "DV" or "Mac Audio" drivers. Each device that is configured adds an additional item to the "Events" menu.
Because its hardware independent and forward compatible, as new FireWire media converter hardware is developed, it will be easily integrated into the GVS Broadcast Automation Software system. Currently GVS Broadcast Automation Software supports FireWire DV media converters for DV file play out, but future releases will support other hardware including PCI and PCI-e cards that support HD playback.
