At NAB 2022 in Las Vegas, Evertz will show a comprehensive suite of tools that are designed to simplify remote and live productions, leaving broadcasters free to focus on telling greater stories that connect audiences with content in more meaningful ways.
With the remote production market expected to reach over $3 billion USD by 2024, there has never been a better time to embrace new technologies that enhance IP, cloud-based and hybrid production workflows.
Among the products Evertz will highlight at NAB (Booth N5907) is its XPS Live 4K/UHD/3G/HD Video Encoder and Decoder Series, a real-time video streaming platform that is designed for mission-critical applications. Available in a variety of form factors, this software-defined next-generation UHD live encoder platform can be used for encoding/decoding over IP networks and is ideal for live or cloud-based applications where security, high quality and low-latency are essential. Supporting SRT, RIST, Zixi and other transport protocols, XPS Series provides broadcasters access to reliable, low-latency encoding over public networks, low-latency remote monitoring of broadcast facilities, and on-ramp/contribution encoder facilities for cloud production or playout hosted by public cloud providers.
DreamCatcher BRAVO Studio collaborative live switching platform, which gives operators a virtual environment that looks and feels like a traditional control room, has added even more advanced features to help make operators feel comfortable producing shows in the Cloud. By combining access to all inputs with web-based interfaces, BRAVO Studio can be used for any production, regardless of its size or scale. This, too, will be demonstrated at NAB, where broadcasters involved in live sports, gaming and entertainment programming can discover its full range of features including video/audio mixing, dynamic graphics, support for external graphic engines, replays, and highlights.
DreamCatcher BRAVO Studio’s suite of remote and live production tools also includes Studer Audio products that seamlessly integrate with Evertz live production tools for comprehensive audio mixing; new metadata co-pilots for BRAVO Studio that help automate and simplify production workflows, and the Ease Live graphics engine that makes it much faster and easier for those using BRAVO Studio to enhance the viewing experience by producing data-driven interactive graphics. There is also the option of leveraging real time data collected by sensor-based systems, including ShotTracker’s on-court and on-field sensors, to automate camera workflows.
