SIS LIVE has also acquired Epsio, EVS’ instant graphic overlay solution for live sports.

The 6-channel production servers from EVS have been incorporated in all three OB vehicles that form the new fleet: OB 3, OB 7 and the newly designed OB 1. They are used for multi-camera ingest of A/V content (including content from high-speed cameras) and live editing functions, such as clip creation and live slow motion replays. The servers were successfully operated during the recent Scottish Open Golf Tournament and the European Athletics Championships in Barcelona.

Julian Boden, Head of Engineering, SIS LIVE, says: “The XT[2]+ from EVS is a robust server that guarantees speed and slo-mo action replays with maximum precision. It is also a flexible platform that can be configured for any format, including live 3D productions and 1080p transmissions”. SIS LIVE has also acquired Epsio, EVS’ instant graphic overlay solution for live sports. The new software application will operate with the XT[2]+ systems, allowing LSM operators to insert a virtual offside line in their instant replays, or add graphics such as free-kick circles and the score in real-time. Mike Snell, Head of Sales, EVS UK, adds: “At EVS we are proud that SIS LIVE has placed its confidence in our tapeless technology. Our new XT[2]+ system with the integration of live graphics will not only meet the demands of one of the most advanced and innovative OB fleets in Europe, but also its future requirements”.
