Mexican TV production firm Comtec is upgrading its live OB HD workflow to enhance productions for its customers, including TV Azteca, ESPN, Concacaf, Telemundo, FOX, TDN and Univision.
Multiple, flexibly configured XTnano HD/SD slow-motion replay servers will provide Comtec’s outside broadcast trucks with audio/video file ingest, live feed recording, live slow motion and super motion, as well as clipping and playlist playout control.
The workflow is supported by an eight-channel XT3 production server from EVS. Based on the company's continuous recording loop technology, the XT3 melds history, high-definition output and precise editing into compelling storytelling. XT3 offers built-in proxies, optional 4K zooming, live multi-angle review and an industry first: 12 live recording channel support.
“EVS HD solutions have been instrumental in helping us deliver high quality and highly reliable live event productions across our broadcast television, private networks and webcasts,” said Comtec CEO Roberto Perez. “Our customers expect top-quality results, and our latest investment in EVS technology is key to helping us deliver on our customers’ expectations.”
VP of sales for EVS Latin America, Benjamin Mariage added, “The enhanced HD workflow brings speed and flexibility that will not only improve the efficiency and quality of Comtec’s productions, but will also raise the company’s profile in the production sector.”
