EVS to Present State-of-the-Art Sports and Studio Production Solutions

Jay Deutsch, director of projects and systems architecture, to speak on the future of remote sports production

At Content & Communications World (CCW) 2012, EVS will showcase its solutions for sports and studio production at booth #1205 at the Javits Convention Center in New York on November 14-15. In addition, EVS’ director of projects and systems architecture, Jay Deutsch, will participate in a panel discussion on the future of remote sports production in Hall 1A at 2.30pm on November 14.

As part of a panel moderated by Jason Dachman, managing editor of Sports Video Group, Deutsch will join speakers from CBS Sports, Mid-Atlantic Sports Network and Game Creek Video to discuss the rapidly evolving world of live remote sports production and how to best take advantage of today’s most cutting-edge workflows. With nearly 20 years’ experience in the broadcast industry, Deutsch has supervised several high-profile sporting events, including Olympic Games and FIFA World Cups, for broadcasters such as CBS, ESPN, FOX and NBC, receiving Emmy and Gracie awards along the way.

At EVS’ booth (#1205), visitors will be able to experience hands-on demos of EVS’ latest sports and studio production solutions. At the sports demo station EVS will showcase its industry-leading Sports360° solutions that help broadcasters shape the future of sports broadcasting. These include the latest XT series server - the eight-channel SD/HD XT3 server - controlled by MulticamLSM for live slow motion replays and on-the-fly editing. For simple but high-speed live sports production workflows, EVS will demo the six-channel XTnano SD/HD slow-motion replay server with thenano controller.


As part of the Sports360° demo, EVS will showcase C-Cast, the first advanced multi-cam solution allowing instant distribution of multi-camera angle content from venues to web-connected screens during live productions. Suited to any sports and live events, the award-winning solution offers broadcasters and media rights holders unlimited possibilities to deliver extended media packages to multiple audiences including TV viewers, spectators, coaches, journalists and referees. With fully-modular and service-oriented architecture, C-Cast adapts to any kind of business or workflow, and offers advanced integration with third-party web systems and data import such as statistics, commercials and tweets.

With the XTAccess gateway, EVS will demonstrate media interchange between EVS servers and third-party tools, automatic on-the-fly transcoding, faster-than-real-time media transfer between the XTnano and removable drives - and between EVS servers – using the Xtract application, and extended management of clips and playlists using the Xscreen app.  Completing the Sports360° demo is EVS’ XFly, a new compact, portable SATA-based storage platform which offers up to 6.2TB of storage with capacity for 140 hours of HD at 100Mbps for extended live production operations.


The studio demo station will feature EVS’ six-channel HD/SD XS production server, which is specifically designed for studio applications and helps simplify the transition to tapeless production. EVS will showcase the IPDirector suite of video production management applications that allows users to manage ingest, logging, on-the-fly editing and playout scheduling from a single interface.
