EVS—Technology Showcase @ NAB 2014 (Event—SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] EVS will demonstrate improved live, near-live and post-production efficiency and enriched content capabilities at the 2014 NAB Show, booth SL-3819.

EVS live, fast-turnaround solutions are based on its unique, reliable XT3/XS server architecture and a new range of live browsing software and web-based remote production tools that stem from EVS’ powerful C-Cast connected technology. EVS multi-format file mastering and archive management solutions rely on EVS OpenCube file-based server and its media interoperability software applications. These solutions combine existing infrastructure with practical innovations to help broadcasters and content owners maximize live content and media asset value, making them instantly available across multiple, integrated workflows.

EVS will demo solutions that enhance live content value across each of its four key markets - sports, entertainment, media and news.

  • EVS Sports
    EVS Sports will showcase the enhanced XT3 media production server that now offers built-in proxies, 4K zooming, live multi-angle review and industry-first 12 live recording channel support. EVS’ new C-Cast Xplore web-browsing interface provides immediate access to live multi-camera recording feeds and clips on XT servers, giving production teams unprecedented capability to work remotely, enhance content on the fly, and reduce the number of onsite production personnel. NAB attendees can also see C-Cast at work within the Cisco StadiumVision Mobile (SVM) solution, which uses the technology to make multi-camera content instantly available on web-connected mobile devices in sports and entertainment venues.
  • EVS Entertainement
    Providing flexible workflows for entertainment productions including concerts, stage shows, reality TV, game and talk shows and TV series, EVS Entertainment solutions offer tremendous advances in multi-camera ingest (up to 12 input server) fast-turnaround editing and playout. NAB will showcase the full power of the XS video server with advanced multi-codec, native support including popular formats such as I-Frame (DNxHD, ProRes, AVC-I) and Long Gop (XDCAM HD), with powerful new 10GigE connectivity. Updates to trusted EVS entertainment solutions such as IPDirector, Director’s Cut, IPEdit, XFly Streamer and NanoAir will also be unveiled.
  • EVS Media
    EVS Media will highlight enhanced ingest for mastering and archive solutions, with its demonstration of the EVS OpenCubeHD/SD server for streamlined file-based, multi-format workflows that comply with all MXF standard formats (IMF App 2 and UHD, AS-02, AS-11, and DCP). The file-based server will be presented with its extended range of codecs and format support comprising H.264 AVC, XAVC, JPEG 2000 and MXF 4K. EVS Media will also present its latest closed captioning and subtitling solution, which includes S346M or .ssc/.mcc support. Visitors are also invited to bring a USB key with their production-made MXF files—hard-to-play files in particular—and play them using EVS’ self-service MXF UniReader.
  • EVS News
    EVS News will debut the XS NewsFlash, a compact, cost-effective end-to-end solution that provides smaller newsroom environments with full production capabilities. Based on the robust XS server for ingest and playout, XS NewsFlash provides everything from file and feed ingest, metadata and quick-turnaround virtual editing to disaster recovery and fast-breaking news playout.

EVS CEO Joop Janssen will participate in the Broadcast Management Conference “Shifting Media Economics: Impact on Strategy, Finance and Technology” at NAB on Sunday, April 6. Luc Doneux, executive vice president, EVS Sports, will discuss next-generation sports production, including second-screen delivery, in a Broadcast Engineering Conference on Tuesday, April 8.
