EVS to bring live production solutions to BroadcastAsia

The company will demonstrate its software-defined ingest server and how content creators are using its servers to deliver multi-format productions at its stand 4S4-08.

EVS, live production solutions provider, will be showcasing its line-up of software products at BroadcastAsia from 18-20 June.

Visitors to EVS’ stand (4S4-08) will discover the company’s new software-defined ingest server designed to support studio operations, the benefits of virtualisation, how EVS is applying machine learning for video assistance, and how content creators are using EVS servers to deliver multi-format productions.

In response to the growing demand for higher-resolution content, the XT-VIA and XS-VIA servers support multiple formats, including full HD 1080p, UHD-4K and HDR. Both servers enable the upscaling of 1080p content to 4K for playout.

EVS’ live production servers have passed the Joint Task Force on Networked Media’s JT-NM SMPTE ST 2110 tests, validating EVS’ commitment to ensure seamless IP interoperability, consistent with the AIMS Alliance roadmap.

The Ingest-to-Post solution leverages EVS’ software-defined server technology and micro-services architecture – and reduces the time between the ingest of live multi-camera feeds to post-production in studio entertainment environments. XS-NEO, EVS’ new software-defined server, offers concurrent support of multiple formats, codecs and framerates (including 24p). IPD-VIA Ingest app, a new ingest control application, offers easy scheduling of camera feeds through an intuitive HTML 5 web interface.

EVS’ new PMZ hypervisor appliance enables the virtualisation of backend infrastructure, so facilities’ providers can make the best use of valuable space within mobile production or fly pack units. Optimised for highly demanding live environments, its HCI architecture with software-defined storage allows customers to scale up for more processing power and change workflows from one day to the next.

EVS will also showcase Xeebra and demonstrate how machine learning is applied to EVS’ VAR technology. The technology automatically calibrates the field of play so operators can swiftly insert a 3D offside line with multiple viewing angles.

Also on display will be Dyvi which is EVS’ software-defined switcher. It is suitable to any production or creative need, driving a busy broadcast centre environment from a single control room serving one or multiple studios.

The unified production system, X-One gives a single operator all the strength of EVS’ live production experience through a touch UI. Perfect for the production of small to medium live events, the EVS system allows for up to six camera feeds, which operators can use to switch more than 12+ sources, for creating replays, control audio, playback elements, cut together a live feed and even add graphics and transitions to live programming.

The BroadcastAsia show, part of the ConnectTechAsia exhibitions, takes place at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre between 18-20 June 2019. For more information on the products being shown on EVS’ stand (4S4-08), visit EVS.com.
