Le Groupe Spectre Sonore selects Grass Valley for live event fly pack

Propelling Le Groupe Spectre Sonore’s expansion into the video rental industry

Le Groupe Spectre Sonore, a Quebec-based specialist in the AV field, has chosen Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, to enhance its live production capabilities. This investment delivers a comprehensive turnkey offering that enables Le Group Spectre Sonore to capture market share as it grows its video rental business.

Le Groupe Spectre Sonore is now equipped with one of Grass Valley’s powerful K2 Dyno Replay Systems, a 2 M/E GV Korona K-Frame V-series Video Production Center switcher and seven LDX 86 High Frame Rate HD/3G/4K Cameras. This comprehensive offering, with end to end capability from content acquisition to live replay, will form part of a flypack deployed at live events to deliver cost effective, flexible production capabilities with no compromise on performance.

“We have built a reputation for delivering the highest quality live productions, so as we expand our business, it is critical that we maintain a high performance benchmark,” said Stephane Morin, president of Le Groupe Spectre Sonore. “There is no other company we trust to have by our side as we navigate the waters of entering a new market than Grass Valley. Like us, they are uncompromising when it comes to quality. Their solutions have the functionality we need and give us complete flexibility to operate in any production environment.”

Le Group Spectre Sonore now benefits from efficient, intuitive workflows and can provide high quality images suitable for even the largest image magnification (IMAG) screen. The K2 Dyno is equipped to handle any resolution from SD and HD to 3G and 4K UHD, and delivers seamless playback at any speed from zero to 200 percent. The GV Korona K-Frame V-series delivers the scalability to produce in SD/HD and, with a simple license upgrade, 3G/1080p and 4K UHD. In addition, the LDX 86 cameras provide multiformat and multispeed content acquisition with the ability to upgrade functionality, when needed.

“The need for high production values is no longer exclusive to the world of television and film; concerts and corporate events have the same demand for stunning images and fast intuitive production workflows,” said Yvon Cardinal, regional account manager, Canada, Grass Valley. “There is a strong synergy between our companies – both in our approach to delivering solutions that meet the needs of our customers and in our commitment to delivering unmatched images that tell compelling stories – which is why this has been such a successful deployment. We are very proud to be working with Le Group Spectre Sonore at such an important time in their evolution.”
