Application Engineer (Netherlands, Gilze)


EVS is looking for an enthusiastic software engineer to join our Cerebrum team in The Netherlands.

Cerebrum (an EVS product) is a complete control and monitoring solution based on an open architecture allowing the integration of third-party drivers/protocols and providing integration with a very wide range of broadcast domain equipment such as video/audio mixers, routers, video servers, multiviewers, robotic cameras, IRD, etc.

Cerebrum also has applications in the wider audio-visual market such as the integrated control of lights, PTZ cameras, MIDI devices, etc.

Implementation of Cerebrum projects involves commissioning/customization of the application and production of customized User Interfaces. Cerebrum Designer is the application used to create custom graphical user interfaces from an existing library of control templates and pre-defined objects, from imported graphic files and external data sources such as XML files. This is accomplished by programming in a proprietary scripting language. Workflows can be graphically laid out, allowing operators to view the status of all the elements within it, for example, a signal chain. By clicking a mouse, or using a touch screen, operators can change a device’s settings.

On the left side is the GUI created from a library of equipment attributes, available on the right-hand side
