New EVS demo truck set to hit the road for its first US tour
Following the NAB launch, the truck will head out to visit some of the biggest sporting events in North America. Stops will include the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500, US Open golf as well as multiple NBA, MLB and NFL games. At each event, operators and customers will be invited to explore the truck’s demonstrations, get training, learn about new technologies and network.
“Making our key stops at the major American sporting events is a great opportunity for us to connect with our customers and operators on their own turf,” said Quentin Grutman, senior vice president at EVS. “It’s the perfect chance to show them our latest technology as well as provide training and demos. Most importantly, we want to create a social place for them to meet fellow EVS users in a fun environment. This is a big undertaking for our EVS Live on Tour team but we can’t wait to hit the road.”
The latest workflow demonstrations
The live production solutions from EVS on board the truck focus on five key areas – production servers and live tools, next-generation live switching, content management, exchange and distribution, officiating solutions and IP-based workflow.
In addition to the latest XT3 live production server and LSM remote control, demonstrations will cover EVS’ IT- based switcher, DYVI; new IPDirector content management solutions; the C-Cast multimedia platform for powering multi-platform delivery of exclusive content to in-stadium screens and connected devices; and the new C-Next live content contribution platform for instant file access, review, and exchange between production teams at live event venues and broadcast centers.The EVS Live on Tour truck will also give visitors the chance to get a hands-on look at EVS’ new referee replay system.
IP workflows in the EVS Live on Tour truck will be enabled in partnership with Cisco. A joint IP infrastructure demonstration will include an off-the-shelf switch from Cisco and its engineers will be on site during a number of the truck’s stops.
As part of the exchange and distribution options in the EVS truck, an IHSE Studio Series KVM system will be integrated to demonstrate flexible sharing of server devices from a single keyboard and mouse. Visitors will have firsthand access to see how a KVM matrix offers a more effective workflow environment.
