EVS Sports will showcase the enhanced XT3 media production server that now offers built-in proxies, 4K zooming, live multi-angle review and industry-first 12 live recording channel support. EVS’ new C-Cast Xplore web-browsing interface provides immediate access to live multi-camera recording feeds and clips on XT servers, giving production teams unprecedented capability to work remotely, enhance content on the fly, and reduce the number of onsite production personnel. NAB attendees can also see C-Cast at work within the Cisco StadiumVision Mobile (SVM) solution, which uses the technology to make multi-camera content instantly available on web-connected mobile devices in sports and entertainment venues.
