EVS to Present Full Range of Enriched Live Production Solutions
EVS Sports will be unveiling a 4K version of its future-proof XT3 production server, which was recently deployed for the live coverage of the Confed Cup in Brazil. The new version will offer content providers with even greater flexibility and advanced HD workflow operations, as well as instant delivery of multicam footage to second-screens and Live Slow Motion in Ultra HD resolution. EVS Sports will also host live demos of its latest connectivity solutions that shorten the distance between venues and the broadcast centre, enabling remote live production teams to gain immediate and simultaneous access for review and instant content enrichment.
EVS Entertainment will present its XS media server with improved multicam streaming capabilities that allow up to 12 HD streams per server and showcase its newly-released studio playout solution, Nano Air, for TV studio and on-stage entertainment productions. EVS’ latest software controller requires no configuration and gives production teams instant control of all EVS production servers. EVS Entertainment will also present its newly-available IPLink plug-in panel for advanced integration with the new Adobe Premiere Pro suite. This workflow enabler allows for immediate creative enrichment of content without any cumbersome content search or processing.
EVS News will introduce its new media workflow engine for high-speed news file ingest, editing and multiplatform delivery. It’s the latest among EVS’ integrated news solutions and enables content gathering from multiple sources, including smart devices and social media. As a result, media is instantly available for editing and playout, allowing broadcasters to break news as it happens. The web interface also provides web services with SOA for third-party integration. In addition, EVS News will present a new SD/HD auto sensing feature on the XS server for automatic HD up-conversion during ingest and to further reduce media processing operations.
EVS Media will unveil its most comprehensive solution yet for ingest and mastering in file-based workflows. This year EVS Media will demonstrate OpenCubeHD encoding and decoding of IMF and DCP J2K lossless files with performance more than three times faster than real time. Also on display will be the closed captioning and subtitle management part of the OpenCube MXF file encoding and management suite.
EVS Media will also present its XFReader through MXF UniReader - a self-service PC to open and view any SMPTE standard MXF files. This will be available for visitors to test their MXF files throughout the show at the EVS booth. Updates to EVS Media’s MediaArchive Director for sport legacy archive management, including new virtualisation and multi-tenancy capabilities will also be presented at the show.
