EVS to highlight best industry practice during Live Production Anywhere
EVS will present its Live Production Anywhere vision and its latest solutions through a series of customer events that will take place both in-person and online.
The comprehensive educational programme kicks off the week beginning 21 September and will consist of physical and remote product demonstrations for customers.
The programme will culminate in a live web show in October, where content creators can learn more about the wide range of workflow possibilities that EVS can offer for coverage of live events.
Launched at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, EVS’ Live Production Anywhere initiative brings together a series of recommendations designed to transform existing production systems into more flexible production environments that are better adapted to meet the demands of today. It reflects EVS’ ongoing effort to provide a future of live production that removes the constraint of location, giving production crews the flexibility to operate from anywhere.
With this year’s IBC cancelled, EVS will instead apply this Live Production Anywhere vision itself by bringing demonstrations of its latest products to customers no matter their location. This will be achieved through online video conferencing with product specialists and through the on-demand deployment of demonstration vehicles to sites in Europe and North America.
The web show, which takes place on Wednesday, 14 October, will be produced using some of EVS’ latest tools, including the XT-VIA live video production server and LSM-VIA live slow-motion replay system by EVS’ partners CK Productions and NEP Belgium.
While the product demonstrations are designed to provide awareness of the latest technical features that EVS has developed, the live web show will focus more on the creative, business and economic benefits that Live Production Anywhere can generate. It will feature insight from EVS’ industry and technology experts, as well as a virtual tour of its state-of-the-art Liège headquarters and exclusive behind the scenes footage showing how EVS serves its customers to the highest standards.
The latest products and solutions will be showcased, along with an update on the Axon integration, following the acquisition of the company in May. There will also be an additional focus on how EVS is strengthening its broadcast and IP infrastructure solutions.
Nicolas Bourdon, chief marketing officer at EVS, commented: “With IBC no longer taking place this year, and our chance to catch up with friends and colleagues in Amsterdam gone, we wanted to find an innovative way of continuing the intimacy with customers that we at EVS pride ourselves on. This program gives us the opportunity to engage with the industry and present our latest thinking as best as the current situation allows.
“Our theme for IBC 2020 is Live Production Anywhere, and as recent events have highlighted, it’s now more important than ever and therefore imperative that our customers are able to deliver on this message. This is where we can help, and we look forward to discussing with them how,” he concluded.
