Brings unrivalled connectivity and acceleration to multi-vendor cloud workflows.
Singapore, 15 August 2022 - Caton Technology has joined the GV Media Universe Alliance, the programme developed by Grass Valley which brings industry leaders together to deliver practical, fully functional cloud solutions for media enterprises. By joining the Alliance, Caton ensures that end users can use the fastest and most secure connectivity for their cloud workflows.
The GV Media Universe brings together a comprehensive ecosystem of tools and services that integrate seamlessly to provide a familiar working environment on the world’s most agile production and distribution platform, Grass Valley’s AMPP. Critical to the success of any distributed workflow is the ability to transport content from production to the cloud to delivery, using standards-based formats and protocols.
This transport is best achieved using the CatonNet Video Platform (CVP), an ultra-low latency, high availability, high bitrate and multipath IP transport fabric for high quality media signals. CVP can incorporate the Caton Transport Protocols (CTP), or it can carry standard streams such as SRT and NDI. Content over CVP is fully encrypted using AES and protected using advanced forward error correction, while maintaining low latency for live broadcasting.
“We are committed to high performance, standards-based IP transmissions over readily available connectivity including the open internet,” said Gerald Wong, senior vice president, global operations, Caton Technology. “Joining the GV Media Universe Alliance is important, because as well as adding CVP and CTP to the offering, it means other Alliance members will have access to our experts who have extensive knowledge and experience to help design and build network architectures.”
Chris Merrill, director of strategic marketing at Grass Valley, added “our customers are enthusiastic about the new business models that AMPP is enabling for them. They are even happier when they learn that their preferred tools have already been proven to easily operate in an AMPP-enabled ecosystem. It’s a huge benefit to them to use familiar operating interfaces. We welcome Caton Technology into the Alliance, as they provide vital connectivity which is secure, stable and very simple to implement and operate.”
At IBC2022 (RAI Amsterdam, 9 – 12 September) CVP will be demonstrated as part of the AMPP solution on the Grass Valley stand, 9.A01. The whole range of Caton’s solutions for connectivity, delivery and remote collaboration can be seen on the company’s stand, 1.F36.
