More Control

IPEdit : New Edit-While Playout Mode. First timeline editor to offer on-air fixing and on-the fly editing features optimized for multi-time zones and fast turnaround program editing. The new edit-while-playout mode from IPEdit allows highlights to be played out while they are still under editing progress.

Xedio Dispatcher : New ENG Files Import & Virtual Editing. It offers smooth and efficient reviewing, clipping and on-the-fly transcoding. Content from the ENG camcorder (XDCAM, P2) is displayed on an intuitive interface enabling instant browsing for clip selection, sub-clipping and/or fast rough-cut editing. Once selected or created, clips and consolidated edits can be easily transferred (with on-the-fly transcoding operation if required) from the ENG device to any EVS server for further production or post-production operations.

Epsio : Fully Integrated Graphics for Live Sports. Epsio is EVS’ new graphical analysis tool for live sports. It is based on patented algorithmic codes, which produce real-time automated drawings for enhanced sports analysis. Due to the fact that this new software application is designed to operate with existing LSM-XT[2] systems, operators can manually insert graphic overlays with their RemoteLSM. The operation is done in an instant and creates great visual effects.
