EVS and Haivision have joined forces on a solution that enables remote workflows for replay system operators working on live sports broadcasts.
EVS is using Haivision’s Makito X Series of real-time video encoders and decoders to generate low latency, encoded IP video streams from its XT-VIA live productions servers in venues to remote LSM-VIA controllers over any managed network or the public internet.
According to the two companies, this new integration essentially enables the extension of video monitors across long distances, even when working at resolutions up to 4K/UHD.
This new integration, which is an EVS certified solution, is part of EVS’ LiveCeption Signature solution and leverages the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) network protocol, to ensure streaming of high-quality, full frame rate video to EVS remote operators with ultra-low latency. This means that replay operators can watch their video assets while operating with the LSM-VIA as if they are working in the same location as the XT-VIA servers.
“In order to create replays and highlights quickly, replay operators rely on instant visual responses from the LSM-VIA replay user interface,” said Nicolas Bourdon, chief marketing officer, EVS. “When the replay operator cannot be on-site, the Haivision solution completes the EVS replay environment by providing the best interaction possible for remote operators, even over widely-available and cost-effective public internet connections.”
