IBC 2016: EVS puts focus on IP-connected live production in Amsterdam
At IBC 2016, EVS will showcase what its calling “the future of live connected production,” as its stand (8.B90) will act as an IP-enabled hub showcasing live media flows that connect live sports venues, broadcast center control rooms, and consumers.
Being introduced this summer at international flagship sporting events, C-Next is the brand new live connected tool that bolsters EVS’ IP4Live strategic initiative. This contribution network platform gives remote teams the ability to share files and metadata content over IP, from any OB truck, broadcast centre or production HQ.
EVS will also demonstrate its new-generation IPWeb – a remote access application that lets users browse and select content no matter where they are – and the IT/software-based, fully scalable architecture of its innovative production switcher DYVI. Enabling more creative and productive program assembly based on a pooled resources model, DYVI will be demonstrated in full 4K/UHD mode on stand 8.B90.
EVS’ newsroom production solutions will be demonstrated at the EVS stand and will power IBC TV’s ingest, playout, and multimedia delivery. EVS news solutions rely on the latest features of itsIPDirector live content management system for multiformat and multisource ingest. It also features advanced browsing and integrates seamlessly with craft editors, graphic systems and the latest newsroom control systems (NRCS).
Showcasing the fast, efficient nature of EVS’ live officiating tool Xeebra, the #EVSlamDunk Experience will be brought to IBC for the first time. The immersive basketball arena uses EVS technology to put visitors right at the heart of the action. Attempt a basket on the FIBA-endorsed court and see how EVS’ live tools can enhance the decision making and storytelling of its users.
EVS will also present its industry-leading live production servers and creative tools offering the best live storytelling. This will include the new XT4K server with its advanced configurations for multiformat 4K/UHD and HDR, which offer support for live replays and virtual effects for 4K productions. EVS will deploy its new live connected infrastructure management tools that support OB facilities’ increasing need to operate within an IP-compliant environment.
The tools presented at the show will include MultiReview, which enables the control of up to 16 multi-angle feeds for instant control and automated highlights creation. This is being deployed around the world to deliver the best moments of this summer’s international sporting events to fans.
Today’s programming isn’t simply being delivered in a single broadcast – audiences are now everywhere, all the time, watching whatever they want. At IBC 2016, visitors to the EVS stand will be introduced to C-Cast Syndication which allows broadcasters and media rights holders to expand their audiences – and revenue. This is achieved through the distribution of near-live multi-angles and highlight VoD to affiliated partners like regional and unilateral broadcasters as well as sports teams, leagues and federations. EVS is once more showing how it’s enabling innovative distribution models for enhancing the live experience, engaging audiences and generating new revenue streams across multiple platforms.
