EVS Newsroom in a Box Tour23 May 2011
EVS is to launch a Newsroom in a Box tour across Europe and the Middle East, starting tomorrow. It will travel to 13 cities, from May 24 to June 24, where EVS will present Xedio Flash, its latest all-in-one news production package offering a plug and play toolkit for multiple fast turnaround production operations, writes David Fox.
The Xedio Flash is claimed to be a fast, reliable end-to-end system that "guarantees instant access to media and seamless integration with Avid and Apple FCP post-production tools, as well as the most-popular newsroom control systems due to its MOS gateway."
Easily transportable, Xedio Flash offers broadcasters a complete newsroom setup in a single package. This includes news feed ingest, ENG file import, scalable central network-attached storage, on the fly timeline editing, format agnostic media management applications and instant playout without rendering. "It is the ideal system for reducing content-to-air time and up-to-the-minute news reporting," it claimed.
The road show will include: a product presentation by EVS’ Xedio team; a product demonstration using four different workflows; and a case study based on its first production for TV Festival de Cannes, which finished yesterday.
Tour dates will include: Hilversum, May 24; London, May 25; Berlin, May 26; Cologne, May 31; Paris, June 1; Frankfurt, June 7; Dubai, June 9; Madrid, June 14; Barcelona, June 16; Milan, June 21; Kiev, June 22; Rome, June 23; and Budapest, June 24.
