Mosart Medialab automation now controls EVS servers
Mosart Medialab today announced a partnership with EVS, a leader in broadcast production technology, to bring greater productivity to producers and newscasters through the control of EVS XT/XS series production servers by Mosart automation. Mosart leverages the LinX API in the EVS XT/XS series production servers to enable control and configuration and, in turn, improve workflow efficiency through automation of key processes and automated playout control of EVS servers.
“We have leveraged the LinX API to bring superior flexibility and scalability to our XT/XS series production servers and, in particular, to facilitate third-party development of solutions that optimize and extend the value of these servers in next-generation automated news processes,” says Pacôme Palfroy, product manager at EVS. “Mosart has done brilliant API development work that puts advanced XT/XS series server controls at the fingertips of directors while reducing the time it takes to manage production workflows.”
Integrated with EVS production servers, the Mosart interface makes it possible for newsrooms to automate a range of processes from advanced clip management and display configurations to the enhancement of clips with metadata. The API command interface facilitates automated playout control of the EVS servers, supporting playout of content from one server via a different server. By eliminating obstacles that traditionally hinder news production, this solution from EVS and Mosart frees directors to focus their energies on producing faster, relevant, and engaging news broadcasts.
“The Mosart 3.0 automation tool fits so well with EVS servers because both systems have been designed to handle the demands of live production — and of live sports production in particular,” said John Kjellevold, managing director at Mosart Medialab. “Mosart automation now can control most of the servers in a broadcasting environment, and this achievement reflects both our open philosophy and our commitment to providing flexible solutions with the functionality that our customers need.”
The partnership between Mosart Medialab and EVS extends Mosart’s control over all major video server lines.
