Grass Valley Convergent



The GV Convergent IP/SDI router control and configuration system transparently manages facility routing as the industry migrates from SDI to IP infrastructures, maintaining familiar control interfaces as well as introducing intuitive new GUIs for configuration, management and control. GV Convergent is both infrastructure and signal format agnostic for easy system scalability for your system today and far into the future.



Transparent management of SDI and IP infrastructure

  • GV Convergent works with commercial off the shelf (COTS) switches
  • Uses industry audio/video-over-IP standards such as SMPTE ST 2022-6 / SMPTE ST 2110 / VSF TR-04
  • Supports open standards AMWA NMOS (IS-04 / IS-05)
  • Works transparently in an SDI/IP environment

Faster configuration and efficient operation

  • Incorporates intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), which is platform agnostic and can run on tablets and other devices, extending the capacity for configuration and troubleshooting the system from portable devices
  • The software optimizes the data entry and navigation using touchscreen and gesture features for enhanced user experience and greater usability
  • Glitch-free configuration updates are done in real time, with zero downtime
  • Provides multiple, simultaneous, administrator data entry points, which are very useful in dynamic environments such as trucks

Mission critical and scalable architecture

  • Completely integrated configuration and distributed control environment allows easy and dynamic sharing of configurations and data, enabling easy scalability from small to very large facilities handling thousands of I/Os
  • Distributed services provide robust and efficient redundancy, leading to zero down time and glitch free failover impact
