EVS Demo Truck On Tour

The EVS Live on Tour demo truck, presented with Cisco, is touring the US to give users a chance to test the latest live production solutions. The demo truck’s official launch will be during the 2016 NAB Show.
 Following the launch, the truck will visit some of the biggest sporting events in North America. Stops will include the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500, US Open golf as well as NFL games.

“Making our key stops at the major American sporting events is a great opportunity for us to connect with our customers and operators on their own turf,” said Quentin Grutman, SVP at EVS. “It’s the perfect chance to show them our latest technology as well as provide training and demos. Most importantly, we want to create a social place for them to meet fellow EVS users in a fun environment.”

Onboard is the latest XT3 live production server and LSM remote control. Demos will cover the IT- based switcher DYVI, new IPDirector content management solutions and the new C-Next live content contribution platform for instant file access, review, and exchange between production teams at live event venues and broadcast centers. Theres also a look at EVS’ new referee replay system. A joint IP infrastructure demonstration will include an off-the-shelf switch from Cisco and its engineers will be on site during a number of the truck’s stops.

As part of the exchange and distribution options in the EVS truck, an IHSE Studio Series KVM system will be integrated to demonstrate flexible sharing of server devices from a single keyboard and mouse.
