A multi-source, file-based ingest server and tools for live production, automated archive and production workflow operations are some of the live media asset systems to be showcased at IBC by EVS.
EVS said its OpenCube SD/HD server offers an extended range of MXF file generation, advanced MXF file interoperability, including AS-02, AS-03 and AS-11, IMF support, and management of ancillary data (closed caption, subtitling) throughout the entire production and archive chain.
EVS will also be presenting the latest IPDirector tools for automated archive and production workflow operations. The new Melt feature offers automated playlist creation of all key actions (clips) created during live operations and transfers to archive, post or offsite production. It also attaches the log sheet and original metadata, which the company says provides significant clip retrieval advantages.
IPDirector also features new AutoClipping capabilities for automatic clip creation based on associated keywords. These are added using the IPDirector logging tool or by importing external statistics information linked to the live-event timecode.
A new range of live production tools based on the XT3 platform are also on show. A series of live control panels, MultiReview, LSMConnect and Epsio Zoom, offer on-the fly media control capabilities during live operations. Both the company's XT3 and XS production servers now offer extended format support and capabilities including 4K, 1080p and proxy, as well as 10Gb ethernet connectivity.
The C-Cast Xplore web browsing interface provides immediate access to live multi-camera recording feeds and clips on XT3 servers, giving production teams the ability to work remotely and enhance content on the fly, regardless of location.
EVS will also be using its Hall 8 stand to demonstrate how C-Cast has been deployed at major sporting events this year, allowing broadcasters to combine live production infrastructure with a flexible central cloud-based platform.
