Flagship BBC daily television programme, The One Show, broadcast live on BBC One and BBC One HD, is using EVS’ live video production solutions to drive its live entertainment production workflow.
Broadcast from The BBC’s Broadcasting House HQ in London, The One Show has a daily average audience of four million. The integrated EVS live entertainment solution includes a XT3 live production server at its core, three LSM remote control panels, and an IPDirector live production asset management suite. The solution delivers recording, file transfer, playout facilities and fast turnaround of live content, and integrates with the BBC’s existing digital archive and storage systems.
“The EVS workflow is particularly well suited to quick turnaround live entertainment productions such as ours,” said Dave Rutter, engineering manager at The One Show. “We need to be able to trust that our systems won’t let us down. Having a tried and tested solution from EVS driving our workflow gives us confidence as it’s something that our production operators are extremely comfortable with.”
Pierre Mestrez, market solution manager, entertainment at EVS, added: “The proven workflow gives The One Show’s production teams the peace of mind that is so vital for the demands of a live daily entertainment production. It also frees them up to work on more creative tasks so they can focus on enriching the quality of the programme content.”
