EVS Servers Pass SMPTE ST 2110 Tests

EVS has announced that its live production servers have successfully passed the Joint Task Force on Networked Media’s JT-NM SMPTE ST 2110 tests, thus ensuring the company’s stated goals of seamless IP interoperability with third-party equipment that also supports the AIMS Alliance roadmap.

The company’s software-defined ingest servers allow customers to deploy flexible studio operations and take advantage of the benefits of virtualization. EVS is also applying machine learning for video assistance, and enabling content creators using its servers to deliver multi-format productions.

The XT-VIA and XS-VIA servers deliver the required capacity and flexibility to produce content in multiple formats, including full HD 1080p, UHD-4K and HDR. Both servers also enable the upscaling of 1080p content to 4K for playout.

This ingest-to-post solution leverages EVS' software-defined server technology and micro-services architecture, reducing the time between the ingest of live multi-camera feeds to post-production in studio entertainment environments.

The XS-NEO, EVS’ new software-defined server, offers concurrent support of multiple formats, codecs and frame rates (including 24p). The IPD-VIA Ingest app, a new ingest control application, offers easy scheduling of camera feeds through an intuitive HTML 5 web interface.
