Each of the three T2 digital recorder/players models (T2 Express 2, Pro 2
and Elite 2) brings full high-definition capture and playback to the video professional.
Additionally, each T2 supports real-time HD crossconversion and
faster than real-time playlist rendering.
The T2 from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, is a complete
and self-contained SD and HD audio/video
playout center. The front-panel transport controls
have the look and feel of a traditional VTR, and 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 extensive rear-panel audio/video connectivity,
T2 can also accept files via USB 3.0, or by data
transfer over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network
including Grass Valley HQ, Grass Valley HQ + Alpha
(T2 Elite 2 only), AVC-ULTRA, AVCHD, MPEG-2, P2,
ProRes 422, ProRes 4444 (T2 Elite 2 only), TIFF, TGA,
XAVC, XAVC S and XDCAM files.
Further, T2 digital recorder/players can be controlled
by video production switchers, presentation mixers
and audio mixers — to create a powerful presentation
system. Every T2 has two playout channels for
independent editing and previewing, or for delivering
content to two different display systems simultaneously,
useful for edge-blending and displaying 3D content
