At this year’s BVE show EVS will present the award-winning second screen app C-Cast and the multicam control software for studio recordings Insio. The Belgian maker of live broadcast and media production systems will also introduce a set of all-round solutions for sports broadcasting and fast turnaround studio productions.


Sports360°: EVS’ All-round Solution for Coverage of this Summer’s Flagship Events
Relying on the best-performing live ingest systems, EVS Sports360° helps broadcasters, producers and rights-holders to maximise content value with:

• Extended multicam recording capabilities and new 3G connectivity

• Breathtaking action replays based on industry-leading Live Slow Motion and unique Ultra

• Motion live replay systems

• Live graphics and statistics integration with logging operations

• Rapid package productions performed during live recordings

• Instant access to live media and archives due to advanced connectivity between remote and studio operations (including remote access to content via extended web browsing)

• From venue to multiplatform delivery

• Complementary and/or exclusive content on web connected devices


Record to Post: Shortening & Accelerating Studio Production Cycles
Today’s studio shows need to be turned around quickly, requiring flexible and efficient production workflows. With the introduction of the XS studio production server and a choice of dedicated software applications, EVS is giving producers the opportunity to streamline their studio operations and to gain the immediacy of a live sports production. These advantages are due to the numerous features that the XS platform provides, including:

• Multiple read access to camera feeds as they are shot

• Ability to cut and build storyboards while a live show is on-air

• Seamless integration with Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro craft editors

• Full multicam recording control

• Lower operating costs than VTRs


C-Cast: Second Screen App
During the show EVS will present C-Cast, a new cloud casting application designed to give multitaskers instant access to complementary or exclusive content of live and near-live broadcast programmes on connected devices, such as tablets, smartphones and laptops. It is a simple add-on solution to any existing EVS live production infrastructure and offers a fully open architecture based on API, allowing broadcasters and media distributors to build their own web interface. As a result, clips created during a live production can be instantly available on any connected device.

Presenting Insio ProNotes
At BVE EVS will unveil Insio ProNotes, a new software application designed to help assistants log footage with keywords and take notes on a PC or tablet during a shoot. The notes are automatically linked to the footage and can be displayed as markers in the timeline of third-party craft editors. All notes and keywords are stored on the Insio database, where they can easily be transferred to post-production. ProNotes also allows producers to subsequently add comments, which increases the accuracy of the notes and saves time when editing.
