EVS provides super slow motion for NESN


The XT3 media server from EVS, the leading provider of live video production systems, brings new super slow motion capabilities and an improved live production workflow to NESN (New England Sports Network).

“Both our regional and national clients are implementing super slow motion across all platforms,” said Garrett Sullivan, Vice President of Business Development, Game Creek Video. “Through its increased support of high-speed cameras, the XT3 will not only help NESN deliver much more compelling live sports coverage but do so more efficiently. The overall viewer experience will be greatly enhanced.”


EVS’ XT3 12-channel server now supports recording of up to eight times (480fps) Super Motion cameras, plus two additional inputs. Game Creek Video’s ‘94’ state-of-the-art remote production truck has added the new 12-channel configuration to one of their existing XT3 servers. Through this new configuration NESN can connect two SONY-F55 cameras running in six times mode (360fps) for HD production, resulting in higher density and more immersive live sports production for sports like professional baseball and hockey.

The XT3 also uses 10GigE connectivity, which allows efficient management of the high-speed content to the central XFile3 archive storage. One operator can now control a higher number of high-speed cameras from one control interface, manage this content easily to the main transportable archive, and distribute content with all users on the existing XNet SDTI network.
