DYVI Switcher For Croatian Sport Channels
New EVS DYVI production switcher for Slovenian production company VPK PRO.
Slovenian producer VPK PRO has deployed a EVS DYVI switcher for the launch by leading telco VipNet of five new live sports channels in Croatia.
The EVS installation was made by VPK PRO, acting as technical partner, ahead of the roll out of the new PlanetSport channels which went live earlier this summer.
Part of the Mediapro Group, VPK PRO is Slovenia’s largest independent television producer and is providing playout services in HD and UHD-4K, when needed for the new channels. The DYVI is being used to output programming from the virtual PlanetSport studio.
VPK PRO’s technical director, Admir Budimlic said: that DYVI “was the natural choice for operations that are so graphics heavy because it’s easy to use even when we’re running these technically-ambitious productions.
The switcher is key to PlantSport’s operations which include the output of the next three years’ worth of coverage of the UEFA Champions League. For the tournament, VPK PRO handles studio production operations for the PlanetSport 1 channel as well as local event production for the other four channels, using its fleet of mobile units.
