Grass Valley GV Director

Nonlinear Live Production Center
The GV Director Nonlinear Live Production System is the ultimate multipurpose tool for live production. Integrating video switching, multilayer effects, animated graphics, multiviewer monitoring and more — all in a single, intuitive and highly creative system. GV Director removes the typical complexity of production and simplifying pre-production and production processes using one intuitive and dynamic platform. Starting from scratch or using a pre-built template, sophisticated productions are easy since elements can be created, packaged and saved offline using a Mac or PC, then delivered live when needed. With the ability to collaborate and share work-in-progress, producing highly creative and valuable content is easy.
