Gravity Media Upgrades With EVS

The owner of Gearhouse Broadcast, Hyperactive Broadcast and Input Media is upgrading its EVS XT servers to run the latest Multicam 16.00 operating system. The group’s IPDirector and XTAccess live tools are also updated.

Multicam 16.00 is the latest version of the operating system which powers EVS’ XT series servers. The deal provides Gravity Media Group the ability to run EVS XNet-VIA network.

Pete Newton, Technical Director of Gravity Media Group. “By investing in XT-VIA and expanding our stock of XT3 ChannelMAX, we are embracing new technology that allows us to deliver flexible and robust workflows in HD, UHD and HDR. Upgrading our extensive fleet of servers means we can continue offering our customers the most advanced and future-proofed live production infrastructures. It also demonstrates our commitment to delivering greater value by embracing emerging technologies, such as IP, into our portfolio of facilities.”

Dr Pierre De Muelenaere, CEO of EVS said: “This deal represents EVS and Gravity Media’s continued partnership in the delivery of solutions that drive the industry forward, both creatively and technologically. The newly released XT-VIA server, which offers the best live UHD replays in the market, is the result of our engineers’ dedication to building a live production tool that enables facilities providers to operate at the highest level in multiple formats and at any resolution. We’re delighted with how well the market is receiving the server and recognising the benefits it can bring to a production.”
