“Epiphan Connect brings the simplicity of Microsoft Teams to Grass Valley users, improving all aspects of hybrid production, without the costs associated with replacing existing infrastructure,” says Nic Milani, vice president of marketing and business development. “Producers benefit from easily connecting remote contributors to their event, while participants experience the convenience of Microsoft Teams. Epiphan Connect even turns MTRs into mini-studios. Everyone wins.”

The worlds’ best production and distribution platform just got the power of Microsoft Teams.”
