BVE 2014: New C-Cast Xplore and 4K XT3 from EVS
On stand K05 at next week’s BVE show in London, EVS will present latest solutions for users in the entertainment, media and sports industries. C-Cast Xplore, the new browsing interface, gives broadcasters, producers and editors access to the live multi-cam recording feeds and clips on an XT server from remote sport centres. C-Cast Xplore lets users review, create clips and select content that was previously inaccessible and C-Cast connected technology means live server content can be reviewed while it is recorded. It offers cost savings by reducing the number of people necessary on the shoot without compromising on quality, as well as encouraging collaborative production between different sites.
Alan Holmes, sports mobile product manager from Sky Sports Digital Media, will be sharing his experience with C-Cast during this year’s BVE. He’ll present a Sky Sports 360 case study between 3-3.30pm on Wednesday 25 February at the Connected Theatre (P10).
EVS’ new 4K XT3 server provides content owners with full 4K support for Ultra-HD recording and replay, giving them increased flexibility and making their workflow 100% future-proof. Along with its Epsio Zoom, it also offers unique 4K zooming capabilities. The 4K XT3 can be configured to work in either one in/one out, one in/two out or two in/one out, meaning a single XT3 can continuously record two UHD cameras while providing 4K instant replays and highlights.
EVS Sports has improved live OB operation capabilities with its MultiReview solution. Enabling operators and assistant directors to browse multiple camer angles simultaneously, MultiReview means live replay and editing decisions can be made instantly. It also makes creating replay sequences from any camera on the network even more efficient.
In time for BVE, EVS Media can announce that all of its solutions now support DPP AS-11, the UK’s first common MXF file format to enable TV programme delivery by file. OpenCube HD/SD is EVS’ most comprehensive solution yet for ingest and mastering in file-based workflows. The ingest server for MXF file mastering provides maximum flexibility within any production and post production environment. The latest version of the server handles both the encoding of MXF 4K formats and transcoding from various file formats, including JPEG2000 in faster than realtime. It also preserves ancillary data, such as subtitles and closed captions.
Content owners, post production professionals and archive specialists with an interest in DPP AS-11 compliance, tape to file-based archive migration and ingest for mastering, will have the chance to discuss this face to face with Adrian Hoile, EVS’ newly appointed sales manager, Media, for the EMEA region.
