EVS is globally recognized as the technology leader for live video production. The company introduced Live Slow Motion replay in 1994, and has continued to build on its reputation for quality and reliability with solutions that enhance live sports, entertainment and news content. Innovations – such as the C-Cast multimedia platform and DYVI IT-based switcher – are raising the bar for live production enrichment, management and distribution. Broadcasters, rights owners, producers and venues alike use EVS to maximize the value of their productions and increase revenue streams.
LIVE SERVERS – EXPANDING THE LIVE PRODUCTION CORNERSTONE
EVS XT3 and XS production servers provide the industry’s most reliable solution for transitioning to the next generation of industry standards and workflows.
With the introduction of the newest Multicam software engine for EVS’ iconic XT3 servers, customers can expect expanded flexibility with increased SuperMotion camera configurations (up to two SuperMotion 6X camera recordings with two additional recording and playout channels available); ingest and playout options with the XS server for studios; and audio channel/MADI support. Added to these capabilities is the XT3’s current format support for 4K/UHD, 1080p and proxy; 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity; up to 12 HD/SD live rec/play channels; and built-in technical support – making XT3 the choice for the future.
LIVE PRODUCTION – PREMIUM-LEVEL SOLUTIONS FOR LIVE STORYTELLING
EVS introduces the “LSM Cockpit,” a unified LSM environment, including flexible multi-angle content access and control for quick highlight creation with the LSM remote control panel and MultiReview; new touch-based clip and playlist control with LSM Connect; as well as on-the-fly virtual and zooming effects for augmenting the live replay thanks to the Epsio product range.
LIVE CONTENT MANAGEMENT – INGEST, MANAGEMENT, EXCHANGE AND CONTRIBUTION
Designed for live and fast turnaround production, the IPDirector live production software suite offers a wealth of new capabilities for unified linear and file ingest, management, exchange and contribution based on advanced BPM and SOA foundations. These include web-based tools for collaboration and content exchange between venues and studio, automated clip management, metadata integration and archive management.
For multi-camera studio productions, IPDirector brings recording sessions to the post-production stage efficiently, offering best-in-class integration with Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Apple FCP-X, as well as single file exchange for 4K editing. It also integrates with the EVS line of XStore shared storage solutions for intelligently managing assets with optimal speed and guaranteed storage capacity. The Director’s Cut module is the ultimate time saver for “as live” shows, by collapsing the time from record to edit completion.
DYVI – IT-BASED VIDEO SWITCHER
Ushering in the dawn of IT production technologies, DYVI enables flexible creative resources and layering while bringing high-end functions to familiar switcher-like operational interfaces. Scalable, professional-grade switching makes DYVI ideal for studios with multiple control rooms and multi-venue campuses. The distributed architecture enables cross-campus to cross-continent distribution.
LIVE DISTRIBUTION – REACHING BROADER AUDIENCES
C-Cast technology extends the live content experience beyond the TV screen by providing content owners, rights holders and broadcasters with the ability to reach and engage more diverse audiences with high-quality and targeted content as the event unfolds. C-Cast connects on-site production infrastructure to a cloud-based platform, allowing the aggregation of multi-angle video and statistics for instant delivery to any platform. This provides an enriched, personalized and exclusive live sports experience.
DIGITAL ARCHIVE MANAGEMENT
EVS also provides digital archive tools, such as the MediaArchive Director enabling content digitization and storage, and IP2Archive – an IPDirector module – which adds digital archive management to an existing IPDirector workflow.
