EVS’ CCW sports focus to include advanced multi-cam product
Visitors to next week’s CCW show in New York (Javits Convention Center, Nov 14-15) will be able to participate in hands-on demos of EVS’ latest sports and studio production solutions, including the latest XT series server – the eight-channel SD/HD XT3 0 controlled by MulticamLSM for live slow motion replays and on-the-fly editing.
In addition, for simple but high-speed live sports production workflows, EVS will demo the six-channel XTnano SD/HD slow-motion replay server with thenano controller.
C-Cast – billed as the first advanced multi-cam solution allowing instant distribution of multi-camera angle content from venues to web-connected screens during live productions – will also be showcased. Suited to any sports and live events, the solution offers broadcasters and media rights’ holders the opportunity to deliver extended media packages to multiple audiences including TV viewers, spectators, coaches, journalists and referees. With fully-modular and service-oriented architecture, C-Cast adapts to a variety of businesses and workflows, and offers advanced integration with third-party web systems and data import such as statistics, commercials and tweets.
With the XTAccess gateway, EVS will demonstrate media interchange between EVS servers and third-party tools, automatic on-the-fly transcoding, faster-than-real-time media transfer between the XTnano and removable drives – and between EVS servers – using the Xtract application, and extended management of clips and playlists using the Xscreen app. Completing the Sports360° demo is EVS’ XFly, a new compact, portable SATA-based storage platform which offers up to 6.2TB of storage with capacity for 140 hours of HD at 100Mbps for extended live production operations.
The studio demo station will feature EVS’ six-channel HD/SD XS production server, which is specifically designed for studio applications and helps simplify the transition to tapeless production. EVS will showcase the IPDirector suite of video production management applications that allows users to manage ingest, logging, on-the-fly editing and playout scheduling from a single interface.
