Grass Valley T2 Elite 2 overview

  • 1Description

The T2 Elite 2 Digital Recorder and Player from Grass Valley is a complete and self-contained SD and HD audio/video playout center. It supports real-time HD cross conversion and quick real-time playlist rendering. The front-panel transport controls have the look and feel of a traditional VTR. Two output channels support SD and HD content and are useful for independent editing and previewing, or for delivering content to two different display systems simultaneously. These are also suitable for edge-blending and displaying 3D content.

The 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 extensive rear-panel audio/video connectivity, T2 can also accept files via USB 3.0, or by data transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network including Grass Valley HQ, Grass Valley HQ + Alpha, AVC-ULTRA, AVCHD, MPEG-2, P2, ProRes 422, ProRes 4444, TIFF, TGA, XAVC, XAVC S and XDCAM files.

Note: Note while Importing Files:
1. For MP4, MXF, XAVC, and XAVC S, 1920 x 1080 59.94p or 1920 x 1080 50p files will automatically be converted to Grass Valley HQ AVI.
2. For P2 and XAVC, for resolutions greater than 1920 x 1080, the file will be scaled to HD or SD and then imported.
