EVS partners with Inala Broadcast in the run up to Mediatech Africa 2015

Agreement will see EVS expanding its services to the Sub-Saharan market with the African systems integrator

EVS, the leading provider of live video solutions, has today announced a partnership agreement with African systems integrators Inala Broadcast, a division of Inala Technologies.

The partnership will see Inala Broadcast supporting EVS sales and services to the Sub-Saharan broadcast market. Its international partnership approach will give the African market access to products and technical expertise.

“Our partnerships with leaders in the broadcast technology space like EVS are extremely important to Inala Broadcast’s ability to make improvements in workflows for all aspects of programme making in Africa,” said Colin Wainer, executive at Inala Broadcast. “We trust how efficient and reliable EVS’ live production technology is and being able to support its services is a huge benefit to us.”


As part of this partnership EVS will have two demonstrations on Inala Technologies’ booth (C21) at Mediatech Africa 2015 in Johannesburg featuring the latest in live production solutions.

On display will be EVS’ XT3 and XS production servers – the industry’s most reliable solution with up to 12 HD/SD live rec/play channels and now increased SuperMotion camera configurations. The “LSM Cockpit” and EVS’ IPDirector will also be on display at the show. The cockpit will showcase how operators can pilot the best tools for quick highlight creation and the addition of on-the-fly virtual effects and IPDirector will show how it allows ingest control, metadata management, on the fly editing and playout scheduling from a single interface.

EVS’ new IT based production switcher, DYVI will be on display to show how scalability and professional-grade switching makes the unit ideal for the dawning of IP production technologies and remote production infrastructures.

Felix Trapiello, area sales manager for Spain, Portugal and Southern Africa at EVS said “Mediatech Africa is a great place to promote our new partnership with Inala Broadcast. EVS solutions are well-known all around the world and to have this additional support for our services in the Sub-Saharan area will only help reinforce that idea.”


Mediatech Africa 2015 takes place at The Dome and Northgate in Johannesburg, South Africa between 15-17 July. To see EVS technology, head to the Inala Technologies booth number C21.
