TV NOW, a brand new 24-hour Malayalam satellite television channel for news and other informational programming, plans to launch with a fully-integrated high-definition news production solution from Grass Valley. TV NOW's new infrastructure will include three GV Director nonlinear live production systems, the powerful GV STRATUS nonlinear media production tools, nine LDX Flex HD studio cameras, a Trinix NXT digital video routing switcher, a K2 Summit 3G transmission server, EDIUS nonlinear editing software, and HD K2 SAN storage. Together, these solutions will enable TV NOW to get news to air more quickly and without any interruptions, which is crucial to the smooth running of an operation that airs programming 24/7.
TV NOW, operated by the Kerala Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), will deliver programming in high definition to 40 million viewers across the state of Kerala in southwest India. Station management prides itself on its modern, forward-thinking approach in offering round-the-clock news that is accessible to viewers via smart phones, tablets, and other devices.
