EditShare launches Geevs Sports solution
New from EditShare, Geevs Sports is a turnkey solution tailored to the requirements of multi-channel, fast-paced sports and live events coverage. A comprehensive sports production solution, Geevs Sports includes the Geevs Sports Replay multi-channel HD server; an integrated Multiviewer, a tactile Controller; and the Geevs Sports Assistant web client for logging events with pre-defined markers and subclips.
Geevs Sports integrates with EditShare’s storage and flow asset management solutions, making it a complete sports production platform for broadcasters, outside broadcast companies (OBs), and in-stadium television producers.
“Geevs Sports is no ordinary sports system,” states James Richings, managing director, EditShare. “In addition to the breadth and depth of capabilities and outstanding performance, Geevs Sports Replay’s user interface is a key attribute that operators will appreciate. Uncluttered, Geevs Sports Replay displays information clearly and concisely, giving users the utmost confidence to make instant production decisions in a rapid-moving environment.”
Sports Replay’s Multiviewer lets users view all four inputs and two outputs simultaneously, with clip, transport status, audio presence and tally all within one screen. The agile and compact custom controller gives operators precise access to playlist functions with a minimum number of keystrokes, facilitating fast playlist creation and instant replay of any clip from multiple angles.
Sports Assistant logs requirements of different sports with pre-defined markers and subclips. Users can also create templates to better suit the logging requirements of different events. Because Geevs Sports Assistant is web-based, it can be used on a range of devices including iPad and Android tablets.
Seamless integration across the EditShare product line means that sports production teams can capture to and playback directly from EditShare shared storage, centralising sports content for rapid production. Editors using industry-standard applications including Avid, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Lightworks have immediate and shared access to both high-res and proxy files even while recording is in progress.
Playlists created in Geevs Sports can also be viewed and adjusted in Flow, EditShare’s asset management application. This capability gives more accessibility across production teams, allowing operators and producers to collaborate more effectively and quickly.
