EVS Expands its UltraMotion Replay Capabilities to Photron FASTCAM Systems

XT[2]+ MulticamLSM system allows full control of the Photron FASTCAM

EVS Broadcast Equipment, a leader in instant tapeless technology and replay solutions, is pleased to announce that the latest development of its XT[2]+ MulticamLSM system now allows a full control of the Photron FASTCAM high-speed cameras, for live slow ultra-motion replays. The new integrated solution will provide Photron, high speed digital imaging systems, with extended instant ultra-motion replay capabilities for their live broadcast operations.

EVS is continuing to expand its live systems capabilities with the recent release of its Multicam 10.3 software package. The new solution will give XT[2]+ LSM full control over the Photron FASTCAM systems for instant UltraMotion replay in all live broadcast productions.

EVS XT[2]+ is the next generation of XT series servers, introduced in early 2010 along with a range of efficient multi-purpose controllers for live and near-live production. The LSM remote controller is currently used by over 6,000 certified operators worldwide for live broadcast operations such as slow-mo, super slow-mo replays, clip creation and live editing. This new development means that XT2+-LSM will manage the FASTCAM video signal input through one of its server channels, which in turn can be controlled by the LSM remote for instant replays.

Photron is a world leader in the development and manufacturing of high-speed digital imaging products. Its FASTCAM high-speed camera systems can record split-second phenomena at high frame rates, and then replay the event as a super slow motion movie.

High-speed cameras are already widely-used in industrial and scientific applications, and are becoming increasingly popular for live sports broadcast operations. Photron and EVS have combined their expertise in high speed imaging and live broadcast technologies to provide a high definition high speed imaging solution that can be integrated into its existing live broadcast production systems.

Bernard Stas, General Product Manager at EVS “The recent integration of XT2+ LSM with Photron’s FASTCAM high-speed cameras confirms EVS leadership in UltraMotion replay solutions. UltraMotion replay offers extended capabilities for OB facilities and live broadcasters based on their existing EVS systems.
