EVS earns Emmy Award for Epsio 4K zooming technology
EVS will pick up an Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at the 68th Annual Technology and Engineering Awards next January during CES Las Vegas. Its Epsio Zoom gives operators the ability to broadcast every detail of live action from multiple cameras, enabling operators to zoom into a particular section of a picture and prepare engaging clips for playout during live events.
Whether using UHD-4K cameras or zooming into existing HD SuperMotion content, Epsio Zoom works with all formats and content types, allowing operators to create dynamic replays at high frame rates, freeze key actions, and zoom into critical plays with the highest level of detail.
“We’re living in a time of realism and intensity,” said Laurent Petit, VP, Product at EVS. “Tools like Epsio Zoom are critical to making the viewing experience—whether from a stadium seat or living room sofa— as exciting as possible. We’re extremely proud that we’ve been honored with an Emmy Award for this innovation.”
Epsio Zoom systems are currently in use for major live events, at stadiums and arenas, and by top broadcasters around the world, including extensive deployments in the United States, Japan and Latin America. In addition to implementations at many of the National Football League’s new venues in the US, FOX Sports used the solution for first-time 4K coverage of several key holes of the US Open golf championship. It was also integral to this year’s Super Bowl coverage on CBS.
Epsio Zoom is part of the Epsio suite of tools that adds functionality, including effects, telestration and graphical overlays, to EVS’ industry-leading XT3 production server platform.
