NEP Europe has bought 75 IP-enabled 4K UHD HDR cameras and accompanying base stations from Grass valley. 


NEP has taken delivery of the new live production equipment for deployment across its fleet of OB trucks and studios.


Forty-five of the cameras will be upgrades of NEP’s existing Grass Valley cameras in Germany and the remaining 30 will replace NEP’s cameras from another manufacturer at the company’s Italian operation.


“We have a strong reputation for delivering first class, premium content services to our clients and for bringing together the right technology to support the most complex production requirements,” said Paul Henriksen, president, NEP Europe. “We have a longstanding relationship with Grass Valley – they understand our needs as an organization, and we know they are unmatched when it comes to delivering the high-quality solutions we demand. The advanced IP connectivity in these cameras will help us support increasingly diverse live productions, and also provide flawless native 4K images that our clients expect. Having Grass Valley as our primary camera supplier will greatly benefit us and our clients.”


Each new camera is equipped with a DirectIP license to support uncompressed signal distribution. Using the DirectIP configuration, signals can be transmitted from the camera to the XCU base station via a standard IP network connection.
