Grass Valley Kula AV Powerful All-in-One Production Switcher
One of the biggest announcements at IBC 2019 was the Kula AV from Grass Valley.
The Kula AV is a powerful all in one video and digital audio mixing system. It includes full clip store integration, graphics creation and editing. It also features a multiviewer.
This appliance was created to support smaller video operations. The Kula AV is a compact system optimized for a single operator. It will provide everything a small production needs for a clean, professional look.
Kula AV packs a punch with a wide range of flexible features, in a 2RU mainframe. In addition to Grass Valley's FormatFusion3 technology, which auto-senses and seamlessly converts any combination of SD, HD and 1080p to the required output for unrestricted mixing of video signal types across all inputs and output, the system's integrated audio mixing capabilities include embed/de-embedding, clean and quiet audio switching, and audio-follow-video mode for simplified controlGrassValley Press Release
The Kula AV operates with a 2RU mainframe, and delivers the largest IO count in its switcher class. The Kula AV features 40 video and 80 audio inputs.
The Kula is operated with a 19" panel and a Mav audio module. The entire system can also be easily loaded into a flyback- transportation is easy and convenient.
The design allows for very little complexity when it comes to setup. This means one operator can use the Kula AV to create a full professional live production.
