Mexico’s Multimedios Televisión Invests in EVS Servers
Multimedios Televisión has installed four EVS XS four-channel studio production servers and an EVS XT series four-channel server, each controlled by EVS’ IPDirector suite of video production management applications. The servers record individual cameras or the entire program, which include morning or afternoon live shows, reality shows or sports retransmissions.
The clips created on the EVS servers are used to produce program highlights over the weekend, or to create alternative feeds for transmission in the Houston area, with localized logos and advertising. All content is shared through near-line storage with Final Cut Pro non-linear editing systems.
“With EVS servers we’ve been able to migrate to a tapeless workflow between our different studios, and integrate it with out post-production set-up,” said Enrique Calderon, Director of IT Broadcast, Multimedios Televisión. “The EVS systems give us the performance, reliability and integration we need for fast-turnaround studio production.”
Multimedios Televisión, part of Grupo Multimedios, produces more than 20 hours of programming everyday, including news, sports, children’s shows and general mass appeal programming. Along with its network affiliates it spans most of North Eastern Mexico and the southern United States.
EVS’ XT series server provides complete media control from ingest to playout, including live editing, slow motion replays, and multi-channel playback. EVS’ XS server is designed specifically for studio applications, including recording, control and playback. It also helps simplify the transition to tapeless production.
EVS designs leading broadcast and media production systems for sports, news and TV entertainment.
