The entry level ‘all in one’ live production system X-ONE can be seen by NAB attendees.

EVS says it will present a partnership with one of the world's largest eSports organizations and detail how its technology can be deployed to improve the live storytelling of eSports events. At the same time, the presentations will show how live stories can be created and more easily distributed across multimedia platforms to the sport’s fans online.
