K2 Summit IP

The K2 Summit IP-enabled client for 3G workflows is available as a standalone media server or a field upgrade to K2 Summit 3G media servers.

The K2 Summit IP is a new member of the K2 Summit family enabling SMPTE 2022-6 IP connectivity for audio and video in production applications. K2 Summit IP is the ideal server solution for any K2 media server with an existing requirement for IP connectivity, or a desire to migrate to IP in the future.

K2 Summit IP provides up to four SFP connections for IP inputs and outputs that integrate seamlessly with other Grass Valley IP-enabled products including the LDX IP-enabled base station, our new K-Frame IP I/O board and the NVISION 8500 hybrid router, as well as other SMPTE 2022-6 compatible products.

IP video playout is via SFP modules with two ports per codec board. K2 Summit IP provides up to four bidirectional channels of video I/O. The K2 Summit IP media server offers up to four 1080p inputs or outputs per codec board. The IP I/O cards also supply simultaneous I/O via SDI using mini-DIN connectors, allowing the server to be used in hybrid IP/SDI environments which demand both IP and SDI connectivity.

The new K2 Summit IP module is also available as an F-kit for upgrading existing K2 Summit 3G units in the field.
