Mexico’s Comtec Boosts HD Workflow With EVS XT3, XTnano Production Servers
Comtec, a Mexican television production company, upgraded its live outside broadcast HD workflow with EVS to enhance productions for its customers including TV Azteca, ESPN, Concacaf, Telemundo, FOX, TDN and Univision.
“EVS’ HD solutions have been instrumental in helping us deliver high quality and highly reliable live event productions across our broadcast television, private networks and webcasts,” said Roberto Perez, CEO of Comtec. “Our customers expect top-quality results, and our latest investment in EVS technology is key to helping us deliver on our customers’ expectations.”
Multiple, flexibly configured XTnano HD/SD slow-motion replay servers provide Comtec’s outside broadcast trucks with audio/video file ingest, live feed recording, live slow motion and super motion, as well as clipping and playlist playout control.
The workflow is supported by an eight-channel XT3 production server from EVS. Based on EVS’ unique continuous recording loop technology, the XT3 seamlessly melds history, high-definition output, precise editing and the human touch into compelling storytelling. XT3 offers built-in proxies, optional 4K zooming, live multi-angle review and an industry first: 12 live recording channel support.
“The enhanced HD workflow brings speed and flexibility that will not only improve the efficiency and quality of Comtec’s productions, but will also raise the company’s profile in the production sector,” said Benjamin Mariage, vice president sales, Latin America, EVS.
