EVS Wins Two Top Industry Awards

EVS has capped off a highly successful IBC by winning two prestigious industry awards: A Star 2012 Award and a SVG 2012 Award

The leading designer of broadcast and production systems won a STAR 2012 Award for superior technology from TV Technology Europe Magazine. It was also recognised by Sports Video Group for an Outstanding Technical Achievement in Sport Broadcast award, presented to UEFA for its innovative use of EVS’ C-Cast second-screen media delivery platform for UEFA’s coverage of the Euro 2012 Football Championships.

The TV Technology Europe STAR award recognised the new triple-encoding capabilities of EVS’ XT3/XS production server range. Launched at the show, the solution is the first to simultaneously support the I-frame codec for highly accurate live replays, long GOP Sony XDCam 422 50Mbps HD codec for high quality lower bitrate media handling, and proxy for augmented connectivity and control of production operations. The new feature will be available in early 2013.


The Sports Video Group award presented to UEFA noted the pioneering role that EVS’ C-Cast second screen media delivery platform played in delivering second-screen media content to viewers throughout the Euro 2012 Football Championships. C-Cast was also successfully deployed for one of this summer’s major sporting events, and kicked off the new season of the French football league, Ligue1.

“It’s fantastic to receive these prestigious awards from such credible, well-respected and independent sources,” said Joop Jansen, CEO of EVS. "It is nice reward for our ongoing and pioneering research and development efforts, and for the forward-thinking nature of our customers as they look to engage with viewers and prosper in a rapidly-changing media landscape. It’s made for a very satisfying end to a great IBC.”
