DutchView, a leading multimedia broadcasting company in the Netherlands, is going to acquire 5 XT3 production servers from EVS in an effort to renew its broadcast and production systems over the next 3 years.

The former NOB (Nederlandse Omroepproduktie Bedrijf – Dutch Broadcasting Corporation) is going ahead with a 3-year plan that involves the purchase of 5 brand new XT3 production servers along with IPDirector content management software from EVS. DutchView currently runs 6 fully-equipped outside broadcast vans and fourteen studio facilities for an average of 1500 television productions annually. The new servers will be used for various productions, including live sports broadcasts, concerts, as well as primetime and reality shows.

Herman Julsing, Technical Manager at DutchView: “EVS develops innovative and reliable technology that our clients have come to trust. Our OB vans are currently equipped with LSM-XT2 systems and with the increasing use of tapeless workflows in studios, the XT3-IPDirector platform promises even greater flexibility and the most advanced features for a variety of productions, including 3D, something we put a lot of effort in”.

XT3 is the first server in the market to offer up to 6 channels in 3D/1080p based on 3G SDI connections. The new production server from EVS will be available for shipping in July.
