Video Plus drives UHD 4K and HDR adoption by adding EVS XT4K servers to fleet
French rental house Video Plus has invested in EVS’ UHD 4K live production technology, as it prepares to meet growing customer demand for UHD 4K production services. The deal, which was agreed at IBC2017 in Amsterdam, includes the purchase of multiple EVS XT4K live production servers, as well as XFile3 systems for file transfer and archiving.
The investment in UHD-4K solutions is part of the company’s continued international business growth as demand for productions to operate in the higher resolution increases. The rental house was attracted to the XT4K not just because of EVS’ signature reliability and speed, but also due to the server’s flexibility in offering live replay operation in UHD-4K, HD and Full HD 1080p and for the support of HDR production.
“The emergence of 4K presents new challenges, but also opens up exciting business opportunities for us. We’re delighted to offer our customers proven and flexible solutions designed specifically with the latest formats in mind,” said Video Plus CEO Laetitia Dery. “From our position, providing a live server that can execute UHD-4K with HDR is very important, and a key factor in our decision to choose the XT4K for our rental fleet.”
XFile3 will also be installed so Video Plus can give customers a technical deployment that quickly and easily moves ingested live content and created replays or highlights from the live EVS environment to any number of destinations. They can backup, stream and restore content in any format during live production, providing better content management processes.
