T2 4K Series Digital Recorder/Players

 

T2 4K digital recorder/players models bring 4K DCI, 4K UHD or full high-definition capture and playback to the video professional.

 

The T2 4K digital recorder/players from Grass Valley are 4K DCI, 4K UHD or HD/SD audio/video playout centers. The front-panel transport controls have the look and feel of a traditional VTR.

 

In 4K mode (DCI or UHD), one record or one output channel supports 4K content. In HD/SD mode one record and two output channels support SD and HD content.

 

The crisp, clear 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 rear-panel video/audio/remote/LTC connectivity, T2 4K can also accept files via USB 3.0, or by data transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network, including Grass Valley HQX, XAVC, XAVC S, XDCAM, P2, AVC-ULTRA, Apple ProRes 422, Avid DNxHD and MPEG-2 files.

Further, T2 4K digital recorder/players can be controlled by video production switchers, presentation mixers and audio mixers — to create a powerful presentation system.

 

Every T2 4K has two playout HD/SD channels for independent editing and previewing, or for delivering content to two different display systems simultaneously, useful for edge-blending and displaying 3D content.
