EVS announces Epsio Paint

EVS has developed the latest product to enable LSM operators to seamlessly insert live graphics to an action replay

Epsio Paint enables the live graphics – including spotlights, player names, lines and arrows to be added to replays. Developed in partnership with ChyronHego, the new Epsio Paint software offers LSM operators an extended range of graphic tools from the ChyronHego graphic pallet, which is made available immediately on the live first replay.

The software works in three simple steps: the operator cues the replay, adds one or several graphical tools to be placed on the pitch, and then re-cues it. Graphics can be added live or prepared ahead of time for post-game analysis. The tool is simple and fully integrated into an LSM environment removing the need for a dedicated telestration operator to draw a freehand sketch over a video image on a live production. Epsio Paint enables an LSM operator to simultaneously prepare a sequence for a second or third instant replay and add graphical tools to illustrate the action.

The software is fully customisable to match each production’s graphics standards and Chroma key allows the operator to virtually draw on a pitch. Epsio Paint slots into a standard LSM workflow so there is no requirement for extra outputs from the server. This embedded technology initiative is the first step in what both companies hope will be a broader future partnership. Leveraging each other’s strengths in creation, management and distribution of live video, live graphics and live data, means opportunities for further collaboration.
