EVS to unveil Breaking News toolset
EVS will unveil its new Breaking News toolset, which relies on EVS’ ingest and playout servers for ultimate speed and reliability of newsroom operations. The infrastructure is borne out of years of live production workflow expertise; an ingest and playout infrastructure that can be used across production areas from news to sports, entertainment, and other programs.
EVS’ Breaking News solution also offers advanced collaborative production tools for journalists and content management solutions, which easily integrates with any existing production infrastructure.
At IBC, EVS will also showcase the evolution of its XT3/XS production servers, featuring the first triple encoding capabilities. The system simultaneously supports I-Frame codec for high precision live replays, Long GOP Sony HD XDCam 422 50Mbps codec for high quality reduced bitrate media sharing, and Proxy for augmented connectivity and control of the production operations. The new features will be available in early 2013 and will open up tremendous workflow possibilities, making the EVS server platform the ultimate backbone of any broadcast operation!
Since a successful deployment across multiple summer events, EVS continues to upgrade its C-Cast technology, which allows viewers to use their smartphones, tablets, or laptops to access extra content and view clips the way they want and from the angle they want to view it.
Some of its latest features will see C-Cast offering the ability to replay clips at variable speeds as well as the ability to import third-party statistics and analysis information integrated into a timeline. With a fully modular and service-oriented architecture, C-Cast adapts to any kind of business or workflow, offering advanced integration with third-party web systems and data import such as statistics or social media data feed.
EVS will highlight the enhancements to its OpenCube ingest products with improved MXF JPEG2000 support for AS02, IMF formats for production mastering and archive preservation, including comprehensive H.264 proxy generation at ingest.
