EVS Debuts ‘All In One’ Multicam Live Production System

EVS has announced X-One, described as an all-in-one toolset for live productions requiring six cameras or less. The new system is built with EVS’ software-defined technology foundation and puts all of the capabilities of a control room in the hands of a single production operator controlled from a touchscreen.

“Producers of smaller-scale live operations are challenged to find the right creative production toolset that meets their needs for professional technology at a lower budget,” explains Laurent Petit, SVP Product at EVS. “X-One is filling that gap. It offers the best compromise between quality and price and features an ultra-simplified production system that allows all aspects of live production to be managed and controlled by a single operator.

“X-One has an unrivalled level of intuitiveness and provides variable functions that users need depending on the type of production they’re working on. This is what we call contextualized production.”

The solution allows for the ingest of six camera feeds – as well as for the media import of any other files – which operators use to create replays, control audio, cut together a live feed with the built-in video switcher and even add graphics to live programming which is output in broadcast-standard quality.

X-One is designed to be operated by a single user. Different sports or entertainment productions will have dedicated interfaces which highlight specific features and removes unnecessary ones. “This puts users in a unique production environment with pre-defined functions and simplified operation,” says EVS. “The dedicated UIs will be available on the EVS cloud and can be quickly downloaded and installed ahead of any production.”

The system supports AIMS-compliant uncompressed IP ST 2110 feeds and further assists production operators with functions that can be deployed through a number of apps and plugins which can be built and continually added into the system.

The system will be available for purchase by the end of 2017 with further software upgrades available in Q1 2018 that will provide users with a wider range of applications and features.

“X-One marks the latest step in the deployment of new EVS products which feature our newly developed software-defined architecture,” said Petit. “By combining this new technology with the reliability of solutions that EVS is known for, we’re ensuring that our latest solutions are future-ready and remain the best option for any production requirements in the coming years.”

The system is built on the same software-defined architecture which has so far been implemented into EVS DYVI switcher, Xeebra VAR system and several other products currently in development, due for announcement soon.
