The modular platform offers unlimited expansion capabilities-from a few channels in a single platform to dozens of channels and terabytes of RAID storage using the Grass Valley™ Media Area Network™ real-time, shared-storage system.

The all-digital architecture of the Profile XP Media Platform supports a broad range of standard-definition video formats in the PVS 1000 and PVS 1100, including MPEG, DVCPRO, and D10, as well as uncompressed or compressed analog/digital audio. And with only a straightforward I/O and codec change, you can convert a standard-definition platform to a PVS 2000 system configured for high-definition.

Highly networked, the Profile XP Media Platform enables IP communications over Ethernet networks and faster-than-real-time transfers over Fibre Channel connections.
