EVS XT-VIA To Handle Production Servers in Tokyo
NBC Olympics has selected EVS to provide XT-VIA production servers for its coverage of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad. NBC Olympics has chosen EVS’ XT-VIA servers for their 1080p – UHD HDR production on-site in their Tokyo and Stamford broadcast centers and other venues for the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with EVS,” says Darryl Jefferson, VP Post Production & Digital Workflow, NBC Sports & Olympics. “The fast-paced live action of our largest-ever Olympic Games coverage will use the new XT-VIA platform to keep up with more channels of simultaneous record and help us realize our ambitions to offer 4K and HDR services at an Olympic scale.”
With over three times the internal bandwidth of the flagship XT3 server, the XT-VIA provides 12-plus channels of 1080p and six or more channels of UHD-4K in both SDR and HDR, with a performance level that answers the high demands of NBC Olympics’ production.
“We are extremely proud to continue to be an integral partner of NBC Olympics, helping bring to life their vision of the Olympic Games with our incredibly powerful and robust XT-VIA servers,” says Quentin Grutman, chief customer officer, EVS.
