Rejoining Grass Valley from ChyronHego, Lopez will be responsible for accelerating innovation across key strategic areas, such as remote production, IP-connected live workflows and virtualized media workflows. His area of responsibility includes Grass Valley’s content creation solutions such as cameras, production switchers and replay plus production management solutions including production asset management tools, production automation and editing.
Having served as president of Miranda Technologies and Grass Valley previously, Lopez will leverage his deep knowledge of the live production and content creation segment to capitalize on Grass Valley’s leadership in driving the industry’s transition to software defined processing, cloud computing and remote and distributed workflows.

Q1 2020 also saw Grass Valley announce deployments of its IP and live production solutions by NEP and Gravity Media, further expanding the company’s industry-leading number of global IP deployments in live production.
