Gearhouse Broadcast upgrades its entire EVS fleet

Leading rental company upgrades 115 EVS production server fleet to latest XFile3 software with 10GbE connectivity.

In the largest upgrade of its kind Gearhouse Broadcast is upgrading its entire fleet of 115 EVS machines across its worldwide locations. This upgrade makes Gearhouse Broadcast one of the single largest users of the latest in EVS equipment and workflows in the world.

The upgrade includes migrating all of Gearhouse’s EVS kit to the latest 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and means all of its 8-channel XT3 production servers will have onboard low res proxy recording. All EVS equipment will also have the latest XFile3 software enabling them to manually or automatically archive content from EVS servers to transportable hard drives, and means they can restore content from hard drives to EVS servers. XFile3 also presents a simpler way of handling file formats and codecs thanks to its built-in transcoding possibilities and allows monitoring for all transfers through one single interface.

Gearhouse is also investing in the first 4K licensed XT3 and all of its OB trucks will have C-Cast, the platform that enables users to maximize the value of their media by connecting live content with production teams, accredited teams and final viewers for second screen applications. C-Cast also seamlessly connects on-site TV production infrastructure to a cloud-based platform to enable content owners to either aggregate content, enrich it or instantly deliver it to any platform.

The upgrade also brings additional tools to Gearhouse’s EVS equipment that includes the C-Cast Xplore live content web-browsing application which improves live, near-live and post-production collaboration and efficiency across multiple, integrated workflows.

Also included in the upgrade is EVS’ multi-review system and Epsio FX, providing immediate access to sophisticated live effects while saving post-production costs and enables the addition of artistic replay effects and highlights enhancements for viewers by inputting simple parameters.
