At NAB, on booth 2625 in the North Hall, EVS is demonstrating how its technology continues to lead the live production industry with integrated solutions that are designed to simplify workflows and output the highest-quality programming for live sports, news and entertainment.
This year’s show sees the EVS’ booth articulated around its three core solution pillars: LiveCeption, MediaCeption, and MediaInfra. As the driving forces behind EVS’ comprehensive and integrated offering for high-quality productions, these solutions enable the creation of compelling live replays and highlights, generate swift content turnaround for any show and use the latest technologies to build reliable media infrastructures.
Through live demonstrations of each solution set, visitors will see the various ways in which EVS’ best- of-breed products can be combined to create and manage content with high flexibility and efficiency. They will also see how EVS works with its numerous certified partners to address specific customer challenges at each stage of the production process
Driving the Outside Broadcast market forward
Visitors to the NAB show floor will see how EVS’ LiveCeption solutions for high-quality live production, replays and highlights, are helping Outside Broadcast and Flypacks cope with the rapidly evolving video standards and allowing them to deploy flexible workflows that meet every production requirement, including the growing need for remote or at-home operations.
Taking into consideration the diversity of production resources and budgets, EVS offers two distinct sets of LiveCeption solutions; LiveCeption Signature for high-end productions, and LiveCeption Pure® for entry-level productions, both on show on the booth.
Making its first appearance at a major trade show since its launch in May 2020, the IP-based LSM-VIA, a key component of the LiveCeption Signature solution, will allow visitors to experience firsthand the advanced feature set of EVS’ new replay system.
Used during last summer’s international events and incorporated in an increasing number of mobile units across the world, the LSM-VIA is now the common UX for all XT-VIA® and XT-GO servers, providing the speed and flexibility required in fast-paced environments and allowing the deployment of remote and distributed workflows.
Demonstrations of EVS’ LiveCeption solutions will also highlight the enhanced replay capabilities that are brought by the new XtraMotion award-winning super slow-motion service. Visitors will be able to see how the XtraMotion process can easily be triggered from the LSM-VIA remote, transforming any type of footage into high-quality super slow-motion replays using cloud processing and frame interpolation.
To help its customers accommodate emerging formats and take advantage of the newest technologies, EVS offers a wide range of flexible MediaInfra solutions for efficient control and real-time processing of all media workflows for today’s and tomorrow’s productions. The solutions incorporate HDR conversion and low latency JPEG XS compression with Neuron, provide an overarching layer of control and monitoring with Cerebrum, which comes with a new SDN license that guarantees proper execution of all flows across an IP network.
Leading asset management for fast turnaround productions
The latest improvements to EVS’ offering give sports, news and generalist production centers next-generation of workflows that can respond to the requirement of any production type, and make sure content producers are ready for the future. The company will showcase its comprehensive asset management solutions that provide a smooth transition path from legacy SDI environments towards IP and beyond.
MediaCeption Signature is EVS’ latest generation end-to-end content management solution that ensures quick content turnaround from ingest and import all the way to playout in any production environment. Responding to the increasing number of media assets and multiplication of digital platforms, MediaCeption Signature offers a unified approach to content management for faster and more efficient workflows.
As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, there is a growing need to reduce operational complexity. EVS’ MediaInfra and MediaCeption solutions use LUT-based and adaptive methodologies for SDR/HDR conversion, allowing broadcasters to seamlessly move their content from one stage to the next and ensure the highest quality SDR and HDR outputs in every situation.
Transitioning from SDI to IP is another technology challenge that broadcasters are still facing today. Already a recipient of several industry awards since its launch in June 2021, MediaInfra Strada® will be showcased at NAB for the first time. The turnkey SDI/IP routing solution serves as a drop-in replacement to end of service SDI routers, enabling a simple, broadcast-friendly transition path to IP-based infrastructures.
Finally, booth visitors will be given the opportunity to explore the latest improvements that have been made to its software-defined switcher, the Dyvi®. Easy to use and to setup between back-to-back productions, the Dyvi is acclaimed for its ability to launch complex transitions and effects and for its open IT architecture which facilitates the integration with control systems like Cerebrum as well as third party automation.
