Turner Field Becomes the 100th EVS-Equipped Stadium in North America
With capacity for over 50,000 spectators, Turner Field has been home to Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves since 1997. The venue strives to keep fans entertained by using the latest technology to display advanced graphics and instant replays on BravesVision. With Turner Field’s investment in EVS’ eight-channel XT3 server, the stadium can meet demanding live and near-live production requirements with support for more audio and video channels, and the ability to record 3D super slow-motion feeds.
Turner Field has also invested in EVS’ IPDirector suite of video production management applications for ingest control, metadata management, on-the-fly editing and playout scheduling - all from a single interface. These tools are particularly important in a sports production environment that requires instant sharing of content and edits. IPDirector also simplifies media transfers to post-production and archives.
Other baseball venues that recently opted for EVS equipment include The U.S. Cellular Field - home of the Chicago White Sox, Marlins Park – home of the Miami Marlins, and Rogers Centre – home of the Toronto Blue Jays. The capacity of these stadiums ranges from 37,000 to over 50,000. Some venues have undergone a complete rebrand by installing EVS servers for faster and more efficient processing of footage via recording and edits.
A number of National Football League team stadiums have also jumped on board with EVS recently, including Ford Field which hosts the Detroit Lions and LP Field, home to the Tennessee Titans. These football stadiums selected XT series servers for efficient ingest and playout capabilities which are essential for fast-paced sports like football.
EVS continues to rapidly expand its presence thanks to the industry-leading design and reliability of its hardware and software solutions for the production and playout of sports, news and TV programs in live and near-live environments.
