NAB 2017: New EVS Technologies Target More-Efficient Live Sports Production
EVS (Booth SL3816) will show how new technologies allow live sports productions to be more efficient while enriching the creativity in the stories they tell.
From Connected to Creative Live
Attendees will see EVS Connected Live & Creative Live in action, giving teams the best conditions for a truly collaborative storytelling environment with instant access to media across multiple sites. With EVS’s Connected Live new-media technologies, broadcasters and media producers can embrace the benefits of IP — today, not tomorrow — through instant media accessibility and shared resources that connect people and sites.
The IT-based DYVI switching platform is a suitable match between a modern, flexible, and scalable software-based architecture and the most advanced creative toolset to unlock creativity for even better content creation. Attendees will see in-venue examples for stadiums as well as broadcast-center creative examples. In addition, new versions of remote-access, monitoring, and collaboration tools IPWeb, Xplore, and C-Next will demonstrate how producers can benefit from Connected Live workflow management and creative tools. With these integrated solutions, remote-production trucks, broadcast centers, and remote staff can more easily and cost-effectively produce premium live sports content.
New XT4K Live Production Server
For the latest 4K productions, EVS introduces updates to the XT4K and XS4K server series. Systems now ship with 12G-SDI for four channels of 4K/UHD and expanded flexibility in the ChannelMAX mode. XT4K gives users 12 channels of Full HD 1080p or HD with IP I/O on-board the servers. Visitors will also see how the latest live sports content benefits from the server’s built-in IP connectivity and HDR-replay capability.
Catering to sports fans who want more content on all devices, IPDirector will be showcased with an instant social-media publication tool that allows clips, replays, and highlights be shared by broadcasters, sports teams, or venues faster than ever.
Also on display will be the newest version of the Xeebra referee replay system that features the latest in client/server architecture, letting users position referees anywhere in the venue.
