Creating the Viewing Experience of the Future
EVS’ mission is to create the best return on emotion. To achieve this, the company has designed an ecosystem of Connected Live technology and Creative Live solutions where users can bring together the highest quality live feeds, instant replays, archived media, data, graphics and user-generated video in a collaborative way.
Connected Live is a fully integrated EVS-based ecosystem that enables users to build solid and scalable IP production infrastructures while Creative Live is EVS’ state-of-the-art creative toolbox that helps create rich and compelling live programming for today’s demanding audiences.
Dyvi: The Dyvi software-defined switcher offers unprecedented creativity and a flexible, scalable and innovative approach to video production switching. Thanks to its format-independent GPU video processing, the Dyvi production suite is a future-ready expandable system. The panel has completely customisable layouts to suit any production and operator need. Complex scene designs are easily programmable in a few dedicated buttons, allowing for more streamlined operations and quick content turnaround.
XT-VIA: The XT-VIA production server is designed to meet the most demanding live broadcast production requirements, integrating all new formats and protocols from HD to 8K, SDR to HDR and SDI to IP. Built from EVS’ live engineering expertise, XT-VIA guarantees the highest level of control and precision. Its boosted capacity of up to two channels of UHD-8K, six channels of UHD-4K and 12+ channels of full HD 1080p make it the most powerful server in the market.
Xeebra: With EVS’ Xeebra VAR system, officials or video operators can easily review any number of camera angles and select the most relevant on the system’s intuitive touchscreen or with a dedicated controller. Users can also zoom into selected images with a simple touch-and-pinch gesture to review every angle in detail – quickly, efficiently and in complete synchronisation. The new version increases efficiency by using artificial intelligence to automatically calibrate the field of play, a time-consuming task when done manually.
IPDIrector: IPDirector is a content management suite that features dynamic applications for live media content browsing, control, edit and playout, all relying on a central database. With its open, modular architecture, IPDirector can be adapted to any production environment and allows for easy integration and media exchange with any third-party system. Each interface is easy-to-use, guaranteeing fast and efficient content turnaround.
EVS is headquartered in Belgium and has over 20 offices in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. The company provides commercial and technical support as well as training from its office located in Dubai.
