Honoring the global community

EVS, the global leader in live video technology, officially launched its 30th-anniversary celebrations during an internal all-hands meeting on February 23rd, signaling the start of a year of festivities. In the weeks ahead and throughout 2024, EVS will unveil a series of initiatives and events aimed at engaging the global community in live production, under the unifying theme ‘Family and Friends Together for Live’.  

Nicolas Bourdon, Chief Marketing Officer at EVS said, "Our theme 'Family and Friends Together for Live' is a tribute to all those who have partnered with EVS and relied on our technology throughout the years. Today, there are more than 10,000 operators, producers, technical engineers, and media managers steering the world’s viewing experience, and we are deeply honored to have earned their trust, providing them with the tools they need, precisely when they need them. EVS extends heartfelt gratitude to all these individuals who have played an integral role in our mission of turning the best live moments into captivating stories and emotions for billions of viewers worldwide.”    

30 years of broadcasting innovation  

Since its establishment in 1994, EVS has been at the forefront of reshaping the broadcasting landscape. Introducing tapeless technology, the company sparked a revolution that fundamentally transformed the way live stories are told.  This marked a significant leap forward, allowing storytellers to break free from the constraints of traditional methods, and paving the way for a new era of innovation in live production.   

A defining moment occurred in 1996 during a significant global sporting event in Atlanta. The company's instant replay systems and slow-motion capabilities captivated the broadcasting world, showcasing the transformative potential of tapeless technology in enhancing the viewing experience of major sporting events. 

Every milestone we've reached has been a steppingstone to greater achievements, drawing in opportunities and partnerships that propel us forward.

Building on this momentum, EVS continued to lead major transitions, including the integration of high-definition (HD), internet protocol (IP), 4K, cloud and generative AI technologies. Through close collaboration with its customers, EVS broadened its portfolio, catering to evolving broadcast needs, ranging from replays and highlights creation to comprehensive content management, and from media processing and monitoring to flexible routing and distribution. It is this commitment to innovation and customer-intimacy that has led EVS to its current position as a leading provider of live video production solutions for broadcasters, service providers, and federations worldwide. 

Success breeds success 

Reflecting on EVS’ journey, Serge Van Herck, CEO at EVS remarked: "As we mark 30 years of EVS, one thing is clear: success is a magnet for more success. Every milestone we've reached has been a steppingstone to greater achievements, drawing in opportunities and partnerships that propel us forward. Our journey has been defined by a steadfast dedication to sustainable growth and innovation, and with a solid financial foundation, recent record-breaking results, and a loyal customer base, we're poised to achieve even greater milestones in the years ahead.”
