Telecinco Trusts EVS Technology for Studio Production

Telecinco
a private TV station, part of the Gestevision Telecinco group selected EVS tapeless
technology to be installed in each of their studio control rooms in order to
start the process of digitalising production.

“The main reason we chose to implement EVS solutions in the studios is their
reputation,” said Pablo de La Pe a, Director of Engineering, Technical
Director of Telecinco. “EVS’ reliability has been proven around the world
in the most critical productions.” The XT[2]’s advanced internal
technology, its interoperability with third parties, and its production
interfaces make this video server the perfect tool for studio production and
playout.

In the first phase of the installation process, two of EVS’ 4-channel XT[2]
servers controlled by two IP Directors will be installed, as well as XFile
software serving as a fast gateway to Avid post production rooms and as extra
external archiving. This XFile software also includes EVS’ MediaXchange software,
which will allow media to be transcoded to different formats when needed.

During a second phase, Telecinco is planning to add five more servers with
their respective IP Directors to the existing setup. At this stage, they will
also install an XStore[2] to act as both nearline storage for all the studios
and an external redundant database.
