NEP is investing over $8m to deploy the next generation EVS live video production server as part of its US inventory. The deal represents the acquisition of EVS’ XT-VIA next-generation live production servers, as well as the deployment of LSM replay controllers, IPDirector content management solutions and other infrastructure systems.
All new systems will be delivered starting from September 2019.
