DYVI, an EVS Brand, to Showcase True IP-Based Live Production Switcher at SMPTE 2014

DYVI, an EVS company, will exhibit its IT-based collaborative remote live production system at the SMPTE 2014 technical conference and exhibition in Hollywood, CA, October 21-23, 2014.

Enabling access and management of feeds in real time -- from anywhere in the world -- DYVI is a completely new approach to broadcast production. Using industry-standard hardware and optimized software, DYVI signals the end of traditional hardware-based production switchers and opens up broadcast production to a more flexible, IT-based world. Scalable Video Systems (SVS) in Weiterstadt, Germany, a company formed by a group of renowned production switcher experts, is the exclusive technology developer for the DYVI product line.


"With the DYVI IT-based production platform, remote production teams can manage live events as if they were on location,” said Philippe Van Walle, general manager at DYVI. “The production director can be located anywhere in the world linked to the DYVI network and still have complete control of all key switcher functionality, making collaborative remote live production a reality.”

IT-TV-Live - An Integrated Concept for IP-based Distributed Broadcast Production with 'SDI Quality' on Thursday, October 23

Alfred Krug (Scalable Video Systems GmbH, Germany) will address challenges surrounding the move to IP-based solutions: productions with widely-distributed acquisition and control locations must now be supported; new emerging control systems must be user-friendly; and SDI-based studio quality must not be compromised in this transition. The paper describes a new, fully-scalable production-centric architecture, with software virtualization of a modular hardware device's network location. GPU-based on-demand video processing with compression-free interconnection via IP routing allows natural execution of creative intent in live productions.

The SMPTE technical conference and exhibition takes place at the Loews Hollywood Hotel, October 21-23, 2014.
