IBC TV breaks news with EVS

IBC TV News has asked EVS to provide a fully integrated news solution for HD ingest, storage, editing and playout to get the channel on air during IBC2012. EVS systems will manage the production of news content on IBC TV’s channel, website, mobile content, and video podcasts. "EVS has provided us with a news solution for the last four years and also helped us move to a full tapeless HD workflow, allowing us to achieve multi-purpose delivery and fast content creation,” said Sue Robinson, producer, IBC TV News. “This year there’s an additional twist as we’ll be conducting various interviews direct from the EVS stand, making us more flexible and accessible to exhibitors near and within this hall for interviews.” The workflow will be based on EVS’ XS ingest and playout server for live operations, combined with IPDirector content management (for ingest and playout) and Xedio editing suites. All clips and edits will remain available on the EVS XStore SAN near line storage. IBC TV ENG crews will use Sony XDCAM SxS to import their XDCAM HD media files via Xedio Dispatcher. The module offers instant review, rough-cut edit and on-the-fly transcoding capabilities during transfer to EVS’ production server. Additional A/V feed acquisition will be managed with the IPDirector ingest scheduler. Once ingested or imported on the XS server, the content will be instantly available for edit or playout. All edits will be prepared by one of the three Xedio-CleanEdit stations. Two additional Apple Final Cut Pro stations will be used for final post production operations. The media interchange between EVS storage, editing tools and Final Cut Pro will be fully transparent for the editors. IBC TV News rundown and playlist on-air actions will be controlled by IPDirector, which will manage all the media configured for playout operations on the XS production server.8.A968.B90
