EVS’ boost for fast-turnaround TV27 July 2012
EVS is using IBC to unveil its new Breaking News toolset, which relies on EVS’ ingest and playout servers for increased speed and reliability of newsroom operations. The company will also be showing enhancements to its XT3/XS production servers and the latest features for its OpenCube MXF File Mastering tools.
The Breaking News solution is an advanced production and content management system, which the company said could easily integrate with any existing production infrastructure. Based on years of live production workflow expertise at EVS, it maximises the use of ingest and playout infrastructures.
Enhancements to EVS OpenCube ingest products are also being highlighted. Features include improved MXF JPEG2000 support for AS02, IMF formats for production mastering, and archive preservation, including comprehensive H.264 proxy generation at ingest.
On its stand in Hall 8, EVS will also highlight the evolution of its XT3 and XS production servers, featuring the first triple encoding capabilities. Servers will be able to simultaneously support the I-Frame codec for high precision live replays, Long GOP Sony XDCam 422 50Mbps HD codec for high quality lower bitrate media handling, and Proxy for augmented connectivity and control of the production operations. The new feature will be available in early 2013. – Michael Burns
