EVS claims its XT is the first production server to offer native support for Apple's ProRes 422 codec. "By integrating the new Apple ProRes 422 codec, EVS takes another step forward to enlarge broadcasters' production and post production perspectives," said EVS CEO Pierre L'Hoest.
"We are proud to give Final Cut Pro users what they've been asking for: the ability to access media recorded on our XT production servers instantly without requiring any transcoding. Now any HD XT server can be easily updated to integrate this new standard, allowing our customers to benefit immediately from this new capability."
"Final Cut Studio is becoming the video production suite of choice for broadcast and post-production professionals around the world," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's vice president of Applications Product Marketing. "Native support for Apple ProRes 422 in the XT means that the tool set of Final Cut Studio is now available to editors during sports and live event production."
