EVS Enhances the In-Stadium Fan Experience with FanCast
FanCast is an easily implemented, all-in-one recording, production and multi-screen box. Combining industry-leading EVS tools, it enables the production and delivery of live and near-live content to fans through in-stadium screens (jumbos, hospitality, bars, alley screens), as well as direct to attendees’ connected screens, including smartphones and tablets.
“FanCast allows stadium owners to enhance the live experience before, during and after live sports events,” said Laurent Petit, Live Sports Production & OB Market Solutions Manager, EVS. “But that’s not all. A more connected, vibrant live experience extends fan engagement, builds loyalty, and enables greater commercial opportunities.”
The FanCast stadium package comprises the following solutions and services under a single comprehensive offering:
· Powerful XT3 video server enabling multiple channel input/output and extended format range selection
· IPDirector for instant management and production of video clips and highlights during live productions
· C-Cast cloud-based multimedia distribution platform enabling the aggregation of multi-angle video, live streams and statistics for instant delivery to multiple connected screens within the venue.
· Advanced customer service including training, installation and extended technical support
