EVS to Power IBC TV at IBC2014

Integrated live news workflow includes distribution to connected devices, 24/7

At IBC2014, end-to-end news solutions from EVS, the leading provider of live video production systems, will power IBC TV and their new round-the-clock live operations throughout the show.

“We’ve been collaborating with EVS for six years now and fully trusted that they could deliver our brand new offering, which focuses on more live content, including distribution to attendees smartphones, tablets and other devices,” said Sue Robinson, producer, IBC TV. “EVS is a trusted partner in this process, equally committed to providing a more enhanced live offering with ease, speed and reliability.”

Designed to enable IBC TV’s “content everywhere” programming at IBC2014, the workflow allows 24/7 online news delivery, accessible from any web-connected device. Programming will include live streaming, highlight packages and live distribution of HD signals to multiple screens within the RAI, as well as live coverage of conferences and exclusive live interviews.


EVS’s new XStore Production shared storage platform is central to this year’s workflow, giving multiple editors instant and secure access to all content.  XS media servers will be used for ingest and playout of all news feeds, including live studio interviews, as well as playout to all digital screens.

Multiple ENG crews will upload content shot on Sony XDCAMs using EVS Xedio Dispatcher for instant availability on both the XS server and XStore for editing with Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, programme insertion and playout.


The integrated system encompasses EVS solutions for content management, production, quick-turnaround editing, playout and distribution, including:
·    IPDirector for Live Production Asset Management (Live PAM) providing control of ingest feeds, content management and third-party exchange
·    XStore Production new central shared storage platform for high-performance live/near-live storage, allowing instant content access
·    Xedio CleanEdit for rough-cut editing and news assembly
·    Xsquare orchestration and transcoding tool
·    IPLink for Adobe plugin will give editors access to all media in XStore shared storage for final editing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

“Our deployment for IBC TV this year is an excellent illustration of EVS’ integrated news workflow and the versatility it can provide,” said Nicolas Bourdon, senior vice president marketing, EVS. “The convergence of broadcast and broadband distribution is on everyone’s mind right now. There’s no better venue to put these multimedia tools and techniques into practice than IBC.” 

EVS will be showing its full range of live production video systems at IBC2014, Stand 8B90.
