BVE2014: EVS to Showcase Solutions For Enriched Content Production

EVS, a provider of live video production systems, will present its latest solutions aimed at customers in the entertainment, media and sports industries at this year’s BVE (Feb. 25-27, London, Stand K05).

EVS’ new 4K XT3 server provides content owners with full 4K support for Ultra-HD recording and replay, giving them increased flexibility and making their workflow 100% future-proof. Along with its Epsio Zoom, it also offers unique 4K zooming capabilities. The 4K XT3 can be configured to work in either one in/one out, one in/two out or two in/one out, meaning a single XT3 can continuously record two UHD cameras while providing 4K instant replays and highlights.

EVS Sports keeps improving live OB operation capabilities with its MultiReview solution. Enabling operators and assistant directors to browse multiple camera angles simultaneously, MultiReview means live replay and editing decisions can be made instantly. It also makes creating replay sequences from any camera on the network even more efficient.

C-Cast Xplore, the new browsing interface gives broadcasters, producers and editors access to the live multi-cam recording feeds and clips on an XT server from remote sport centres. C-Cast Xplore lets users review, create clips and select content that was previously inaccessible and C-Cast connectivity means live server content can be reviewed while it’s recorded. It offers significant cost savings by reducing the number of people necessary on the shoot without compromising on quality, as well as encouraging collaborative production between different sites.

IPLink for Adobe, EVS’ plug-in panel for advanced integration with the new Adobe Premiere Pro suite, bridges the gap between production and post. Theworkflow enabler allows for immediate creative enrichment of content without any cumbersome content searching or processing. Using IPLink, editors can swiftly search, preview, edit and import media from IPDirector’s nearline storage into the Adobe Premiere Pro editing station. This removes the need to have an additional IPDirector station, saving both users and facilities time and money.

Nano Air is designed for studio production facilities and broadcasters for on-stage entertainment. It offers cost-effective multichannel playout capabilities with simultaneous playback of up to four HD or SD channels to multiple destinations – including studio backgrounds and stage screens. It can also send the programme’s elements to switchers for on-air playout. Nano Air requires no configuration and gives production teams instant control of all EVS production servers for improved collaboration and integration within the production workflow.

EVS Media
In time for BVE, EVS Media can announce that all of its solutions now support AS-11 UK DPP v1.1, the UK’s first common MXFfile format to enable TV programme delivery by file.

OpenCube HD/SD is EVS’ most comprehensive solution yet for ingest and mastering in file-based workflows. The ingest server for MXF file mastering provides maximum flexibility within any production and post-production environment. The latest version of the server handles both the encoding of MXF 4K formats and transcoding from various file formats, including JPEG2000 in faster than real-time. It also preserves ancillary data, such as subtitles and closed captions.

XFReader is EVS’ high-performance MXF viewer. It lets the user play all MXF and GXF files, regardless of their wrapped essence format. The XFReader is completely agnostic to any HD or SD video formats and has already been widely adopted by the broadcast industry. It allows all files to be read in one location, giving significant time savings.
