NAB Preview: EVS To Highlight Newest Installment in XT Server Series
The XT+ production server will serve as the highlight of the EVS booth this year. Building on the field-proven XT, the most recent server in the XT series has been designed to offer producers increased storage capacity, maximum speed, and the highest level of reliability. It is available in six-, four-, or two-channel configurations, in SD/HD-ready or full-HD/SD mode with dual-networking capabilities.
The XT+ offers several upgrades from the XT: new SAS disk controllers; increased internal storage of up to 12 disks in a compact, 2.5 in. form factor; expandable storage with external arrays (hot-swappable disks — total capacity of 20 TB per server); scalable capacity based on a clustering system that allows multiple systems to work on the same network; a bandwidth increase of more than 30% optimized for future codec support.
EVS will demonstrate the 3D capabilities of its XT+ production server used at worldwide flagship events for live 3D replays, editing, and slow motion actions. In addition, a new sports graphic tool has been fully integrated to the XT+ LSM system, allowing the user to control live slow motion and create overlay graphics from one single remote controller.
