EVS To Roll Out Full Line of Production Systems in Vegas
EVS, a provider of live video production systems, is inviting producers, broadcasters and stadiums to experience first-hand new ways they can maximize the value of their live productions and anticipate viewer consumption demands with future-ready technologies at NAB 2015, booth SL3817.
Live Servers – expanding the live production cornerstone
EVS XT3 and XS production servers provide the industry’s most reliable solution for transitioning to the next generation of industry standards and workflows.
With the introduction of the newest Multicam software engine for EVS’ iconic XT3 servers, customers can expect expanded flexibility with increased SuperMotion camera configurations (up to two SuperMotion 6X camera recordings with two additional recording and playout channels available); ingest and playout options with the XS server for studios; and audio channel/MADI support. Added to these capabilities is the XT3’s current format support for 4K/UHD, 1080p and proxy; 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity; up to 12 HD/SD live rec/play channels; and built-in technical support – making XT3 the choice for the future.
Live Production – premium-level solutions for live storytelling
At NAB, the “LSM Cockpit” will showcase how operators can pilot best-in-class tools within a unified LSM environment, including flexible multi-angle content access and control for quick highlight creation; new touch-based clip and playlist control; on-the-fly virtual effects for augmenting the live replay; fast media archive/restore; and time-saving configurations.
The EVS “Stadium Control Room” will demonstrate IPDirector content tools for maximizing game-day content production and delivery – featuring HD and 4K advancements including enhanced replays through zoom and integrated delivery to post-production editing tools.
Live Content Management – ingest, management, exchange and contribution
Designed for live and fast turnaround production, the IPDirector live production software suite offers a wealth of new capabilities for unified linear and file ingest, management, exchange and contribution based on advanced BPM and SOA foundations. These include web-based tools for collaboration and content exchange between venues and studio, automated clip management, metadata integration and archive management.
For multi-camera studio productions, IPDirector brings recording sessions to the post production stage efficiently, offering best-in-class integration with Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Apple FCP-X, as well as single file exchange for 4K editing. It also integrates with the EVS line of XStore shared storage solutions for intelligently managing assets with optimal speed and guaranteed storage capacity. The Director’s Cut module is the ultimate time saver for “as live” shows, by collapsing the time from record to edit completion.
DYVI – IT-based video switcher
Ushering in the dawn of IT production technologies, DYVI enables flexible creative resources and layering while bringing high-end functions to familiar switcher-like operational interfaces. Scalable, professional-grade switching makes DYVI ideal for studios with multiple control rooms and multi-venue campuses. The distributed architecture enables cross-campus to cross-continent distribution.
Live Distribution – reaching broader audiences
The next-generation C-Cast multimedia distribution platform enables customized content franchises direct to consumers, opening up new revenue avenues for rights owners.
NAB is the next stop for the EVS and Cisco Return on Emotion tour. At the “FanZone,” located at the EVS booth, experts will be showcasing real-world applications that are changing the fan experience. Built on the EVS C-Cast multimedia distribution platform, the EVS FanCast solution works with Cisco’s stadium portfolio to deliver exclusive content to fans and video displays throughout the stadium – bringing higher return on emotion and boosting greater return on investment.
James Stellpflug, VP product marketing at EVS, will discuss streaming HD sports video content to second screens via the cloud in a Broadcast Engineering Conference panel discussion on Tuesday April 14.
