​EVS Says VIA Will Transform the User Experience

EVS has a new server running on its core services platform, VIA and demos of Xeebra, Dyvi and a new hypervisor.

EVS will unveil a new server, built on a software fabric and benefitting from the VIA platform. Optimized for a cinematic framerate of 24fps, this new server offers “simple and efficient ingest” for the studio entertainment segment or broadcast centers. The new server natively supports IP using the 2110 standard as well as SDI connectivity. The EVS server integrates with a new multi-feed scheduling application that will also be demonstrated at the show.

A series of booth demonstrations aim to show how VIA provides “superior UX; deeper and easier integration between EVS products and solutions - as well as with a range of third-party systems.”

For example, server demos will highlight how content creators can produce programming in multiple formats using the XT-VIA and XS-VIA’s operational capabilities. The XT-VIA will show how it can upscale 1080p HD to UHD-4K. Users will also see how the servers can record media in more codecs for UHD productions. Its Ethernet network can connect up to 64 servers.

EVS will also demonstrate the VAR system that’s currently being used by Spanish soccer league La Liga. Visitors will see how EVS’ VAR technology is using machine learning to automatically calibrate the field of play so operators can insert a 3D offside line with multiple viewing angles. In this case, not only does AI provide operational efficiency, but higher precision that will increase over time.

A new PMZ hypervisor appliance allows for the virtualization of backend infrastructure, so facilities providers can make the best use of valuable space within mobile production or fly pack units. To highlight their effectiveness, EVS will ship much less hardware to Las Vegas – demonstrating the virtualization of XTAccess media transfer engines and IPDirector databases.

Demo areas presenting EVS’ partnership with ESL will show how the esports event organizer uses Dyvi inside live sports venues and for its live production workflow for the delivery of content to any screen and in different aspect ratios.

Ahead of ESPN’s ACC Network launch this summer, EVS will demonstrate how the University of Miami uses Dyvi to produce the highest-quality programming of multiple sports from a centralized media production hub.

Another demonstration will see the X-One software editor cutting together programming from AI-controlled robotic camera feeds, showing users how the unified single-operator system is making smaller live events more accessible than ever.
