SIA Buys EVS’ DYVI

To build two new live production control rooms in Brussels, Skynet iMotion Activities (SiA) has invested in DYVI live video switchers and XT4K live production servers from EVS.

SiA is an entity of the Proximus Group and responsible for the production and delivery of live programming for Proximus TV, the Belgian Digital TV provider of IPTV-delivered services for sports and entertainment.

SiA’s two new DYVI video switchers will be implemented alongside two XT4K live production servers delivered with both 12G-SDI and native-IP connectivity. The servers will give SiA eight live video feeds of flexible I/O when deployed in a UHD-4K workflow and up to 24 in HD and Full-HD 1080p.

“We’ve been a customer of EVS since we launched in 2005 and we know the reliability and operational efficiencies that its technology provides,” said SiA’s Media & Facilities Manager, Rodrigo Sternberg. “We’re building our production control rooms to make sure that every piece of technology is flexible enough to operate in more than one workflow as we move towards the production processes of tomorrow. Our new DYVI switchers and XT4K servers are playing a big role in that workflow development.”

The EVS technology will be deployed to produce Proximus TV’s live coverage, including that of the Jupiler Pro League and the UEFA Champions League.
