EVS XT live production server has major refresh wit release of XT-VIA. Front and rear views.
EVS’ XT range of servers has been transformed with the introduction of the latest in the series – XT-VIA. The new server represents the most significant update to EVS’ XT range yet. The new live production server offers increased UHD-4K and HD/1080p flexibility, native IP support for SMPTE 2110, and is powered by EVS’ new VIA technology platform to deliver evolutive services and capabilities for greater content access and future LSM operations.
With content producers increasingly transitioning from SDI environments to IP-based workflows, EVS has designed XT-VIA to operate in either. It uses 3G and 12G-SDI when deployed in traditional workflows, while 10G Ethernet SFP+ lets it operate seamlessly in IP-connected environments. The IP-based functionalities of the new XT server have been significantly increased. Along with its complete support of NMOS and EMBER+ protocols, it reduces the need for SDI-to-IP gateway devices and uses SMPTE ST2110 to power super motion replays in IP workflows.
It also allows users to better deploy speciality cameras in an IP environment. The XT-VIA lets users bypass the need for additional cabling, overcome any interoperability issues and remove the need for constant upkeep, as would be the case when operating within certain legacy SDI infrastructures.
The XT-VIA server offers native support for XAVC-4K Intra encoding and decoding without transcode or further degradation of content workflows. As a 10-bit codec, this enables High Dynamic Range (HDR) productions for the most vivid UHD-4K content. With expanding capabilities from each Multicam Engine software upgrade, more native UHD-4K codecs will be supported onboard.
The new server features 30+ hours of onboard storage and natively supports the widest range of broadcast codecs, including XAVC-4K for UHD-4K operations, with externally expandable options yielding up to 130+ hours in UHD-4K at 600Mbps.
To support evolving live workflows, the XT-VIA has a new dual H.264 onboard proxy in addition to the legacy MJPEG standards.
