Live From Sportel Monaco: EVS Media Hub Is Set To Transform Content Creation

New cloud-based portal gives rightsholders access to replays, iso and live feeds

A little more than a month ago, EVS rolled out its Overcam AI-based camera system at IBC. Now it is rolling out EVS Media Hub, a cloud-based media portal that gives expanded ability for rights holders to make the most out of content created for an event.

EVS’s Nicolas Bourdon says Media Hub will offer new ways for rightsholders to create content.

The system uses a web browser to allow rightsholders access to replay clips, isolated camera feeds, and even live feeds from the host broadcaster, making it easier for their unilateral production needs to be met.

“The objective is to facilitate and accelerate the process of creating extra content for things like additional channels, social media, and streaming platforms,” says Nicolas Bourdon, SVP, marketing, EVS. “And the user can be at the broadcast center, at home, or anywhere else.”

The user can see thumbnails of clips and even make quick edits and sub clips before moving the proxy into a target bin that delivers the high-resolution version. Another useful feature allows the user to know which clips have already been used, avoiding duplication of efforts and ensuring that as much fresh content as possible is used.

Bourdon says Overcam is still the big story for the company following IBC, having a lot of visibility thanks to awards it received at the show.

“Right now, we are doing some proof-of-concept events as we want to crystalize it before the official release by next NAB,” says Bourdon. He adds that positive feedback at IBC for the newest version of the X-One unified production system is also creating strong potential for an Overcam/X-One combination. “Combined with Overcam. it could be a real killer.”
