T2 Trade-in Promotion running from now until 31st July 2021
Great summer deal especially for broadcast and live-event production: Grass Valley just started the “T2 Trade-in Promotion” with savings up to $7,000 (€6,000) when purchasing a new T2 4K model with extended features. The T2 4K player/recorder is one of the industry's most advanced and most powerful simultaneous playback/record devices.
Owners of an old Grass Valley T2 player/recorder can trade in their old T2 with up to $ 7,000 (€6,000) savings when purchasing a new T2 4K:
The T2 4K
The T2 4K digital recorder/players are 4K DCI, 4K UHD or HD/SD audio/video playout and recorder centers, available in three configurations for virtually every situation.
The front-panel transport controls have the look and feel of a traditional VTR. In 4K mode (DCI or UHD), one record or one output channel supports 4K content. In HD/SD mode one record and two output channels support SD and HD content. But also other configurations like 3 recorder and 0 player, 2 recorder and 1 player or 0 recorder and 3 player are possible. The crisp, clear LCD front panel can display high-quality images and is complemented by a software application suite for managing and selecting media clips, clip editing and trimming, and playout — including playlist creation.
Featuring rear-panel video/audio/remote/LTC connectivity, T2 4K can also accept files via USB 3.0, or by data transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network, including Grass Valley HQX, XAVC, XAVC S, XDCAM, P2, AVC-ULTRA, Apple ProRes 422, Avid DNxHD and MPEG-2 files.
The T2 allows to import nearly any file, format and codec and performs cross-conversions (720p to 1080p/i) in real time.
And by the way: among their many great features, powerful workflow possibilities and reliable live performance specs the T2 decks are also a perfect partner to EDIUS X Workgroup as they allow live editing while capturing the growing HQX-file(s).
