EVS has announced that media group ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE is equipping its new broadcasting and production studios with its MediaCeption Signature solution for end-to-end asset management and LiveCeption Signature solution for live production, replays and highlights.
The new broadcasting studio will be part of a new campus, consisting of three buildings designed to accommodate approximately 1,700 employees from mid-2023 onwards.
The company said that the set-up will allow ProSiebenSat.1’s production and editorial teams to benefit from flexible and new collaborative workflows for creating fast-turnaround content for the broadcaster’s live sports and entertainment formats.
“The move to our new campus is an opportunity for us to completely revamp our day-to-day operations,” said Holger Schwenk, vice president playout & production solutions at ProSiebenSat.1 Tech Solutions, the tech department of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE. “We were looking for a rock solid, fail-safe solution that would help us maximise our live production workflow with the ability to easily scale up to support our future growth.”
The EVS XT-VIA and XS-VIA production servers will power the workflow, enabling the production team to ingest multiple live feeds in video formats including UHD/4K, 1080p, and HDR. EVS servers also offer 1080p to UHD-4K upscaling, while the EVS set-up allows for a transition path to IP, thanks to the servers’ enhanced live IP support of industry standards SMPTE ST 2110 and NMOS.
Nicolas Bourdon, chief marketing officer at EVS, added, “With our comprehensive solutions, ProSiebenSat.1 will benefit from a simplified production architecture that will help them increase the speed and flexibility of their operations as well as ramp up the value of their productions as it begins its new phase of growth and development.”
