EVS Integrates with Vizrt

EVS has
teamed up with broadcast graphics specialists Vizrt to dramatically improve
creative flexibility and productivity.

Tight
integration between Vizrt’s Viz|Trio character generator and [CE]CleanEdit
software from EVS gives editors and journalists unprecedented control over
their entire graphical asset base, via a highly interactive and easy-to-use
interface.

“The
advanced interface between the Vizrt Viz|Engine and the EVS XStore[2] server
also means that graphics created during editing can be inserted as live
graphics during playout for the first time,” says Steinar S reide, OCTO at
Vizrt.

EVS [CE]CleanEdit is a fast and intuitive non-linear editing system offering
full integration with remote camcorders such as the Sony XDCAM and Panasonic
P2, allowing journalists to edit stories at standard or HD resolution from
remote locations.

EVS operators will now have direct access to Viz|Trio’s unique Look-Ahead
Transition Logic feature, which not only optimises the transition between
graphic elements but also keeps them on separate logical layers, allowing each
to be independently controlled and rapidly taken to air in any combination.

The EVS XStore[2] server is a dedicated media server platform ideal for
storing, sharing, exchanging, and editing audio and video content in SD and HD,
using file-based architectures. Support for the extremely powerful Viz|Engine
simplifies the rendering of graphics animations for live TV programs, and can
be equally applied to post-production, webcasting, and non-broadcast large
scale display applications.

The EVS
collaboration with Vizrt can be seen on the Vizrt stand (2.219) at IBC 2007.
The system is available as well on EVS stand (8.290).
