EVS has delivered its latest installment for Russian TV production company Panorama’s live production workflow in time for the Sochi 2014 games. EVS Sports solutions power Panorama’s 12 HD OB vans and its multi-site Media Office. The company’s live production workflow features 524 interconnected HD channels.
EVS XT3 servers and IPDirector PAM suites power each of Panorama’s OB trucks, enabling multi-cam ingest, playlist management and live slow motion and hyper slow motion replays.
Panorama also deployed EVS technology for the ingest, storage and playout of content at its Media Office. The multi-site production platform aims to speed up the creation of advanced highlights packages, provide media and metadata access to customers and produce content for the russiasport.ru website. Features of the Media Office include 15 XS studio production servers, XStoreSAN storage for hi-res content, IPDirector production asset management suite and IPBrowse application.
“By putting EVS technology at the core of Panorama’s state-of-the-art facilities means we’ve given them a fully integrated live production workflow which will raise the standards in the Russian broadcast industry,” said Luc Doneux, EVP EVS Sports. “This was a project on a massive scale, so having that connectivity between facilities gives the Panorama team easy and reliable access to media content.”
“Panorama has acquired the media rights for several high-profile sporting events, including the Sochi 2014 and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games,” explained Doneux.
