FREMONT, CA: Under the rapidly changing threat conditions, delivering secure digital assets is the unique priority of every organization in the Media and Entertainment industry today. To address this issue, Grass Valley and Tripwire have partnered and unveiled a new blueprint for secure playout, which ensures safe and reliable movement of digital media on the IP networks.

The blueprint includes a three step principle: secure the network, secure the servers, and secure dedicated broadcast equipment. Grass Valley, a provider of content distribution workflow solutions, is applying this blueprint into its iTX Integrated playout platform for reliable and secure transmission of rapidly growing amounts of data, audio and video that is needed for today's applications.
