EVS and Adobe Strengthen Their Technical Integration for Fast Turnaround Workflows


EVS, the leading provider of live video production systems, announces the reinforcement of its technical integration with Adobe to create a fast, intuitive and highly productive edit solution for time critical productions.  The technical collaboration between the two companies will now extend to remote production and editing workflows.

Editors working in Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC already benefit from direct access to the EVS IPDirector clip structure, allowing them to create highlights packages faster than any other workflow.

The combination of EVS servers and Adobe Premiere Pro CC, using the IPLink interface, has been chosen by HBS, the dedicated host broadcaster of this summer’s major sporting event in Brazil. More than 35 Adobe Premiere Pro CC seats, linked directly to EVS shared storage, will be used to create final edits of updates, promos and multimedia packages.

“It seems like an obvious statement, but what production companies need in fast turnaround work is speed,” said Henry Alexander, SVP Entertainment at EVS. “Editors do not want to worry about the technicalities of formats and where content is stored: they just want to access the clips and cut their stories. Both EVS and Adobe are focused on this speed and convenience, and by working together we can offer the most streamlined workflows.

“Our goal is to enable editors to work as efficiently as possible while creating brilliant results,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “We see the collaboration with EVS as a real advance in what editors can do under pressure, whether on site or remotely. This technical integration helps us give editors what they tell us they need – a way of getting better quality results on screen faster, and with fewer resources.”


The workflow using EVS servers and IPDirector linking to Adobe Premiere Pro using IPLink will be demonstrated at NAB2014, on the EVS booth SL3819, 7 – 10 April.
