15.2016 ProNews XT/XS 14.02 & 15.00
Dear EVS Operator,
Welcome to the new issue of Operators’ ProNews – with information on all the latest products and updates from EVS.
This month, alongside the usual range of updates to functions and usability, we introduce:
MULTICAM 15.00The latest update to Multicam introduces major new features, headlined by a brand new Multiviewer that includes tally support and up to 4 individual Multiviewer outputs and 2 external inputs. This provides increased flexibility and visual feedback to operators.
On the engineering side, Multicam 15.00 now incorporates PC LAN redundancy, including DHCP functionality.
XNet Monitor has also been updated to take account of the enhancements that have been made to EVS server hardware and software. It is now possible to see network information for PC LAN AND GbE connections on the server, and add hosts to the XNet Monitor based on their Host Name. All this gives you a better overall view on the status of your machines whilst in operation or when preparing a setup.
LSM Connect 2.06 has been updated to help you streamline workflows – particularly when creating, tagging and searching for content. There is enhanced visual feedback for clip locations and server capacity as well as the possibilities to flag playlists for archive, and select an EVS server to push your clips to.
XFile 3’s headline new feature is the introduction of the Media Manager tab, which enables operators to manage, organise and transfer content between local/network drives and EVS servers. Using the Media Manager tab, it’s now even easier to streamline workflows between locations, studios and OB trucks.
The latest version of Epsio Zoom introduces a new Keyframe Mode to enable the operator to quickly produce a highlight sequence which follows a player or object in action. The operator adds a series of keyframes, and the software then fills in the gaps – interpolating the size and location of the zoom area across the selected media.
Improvements to the MultiReview interface mean that more record channels can be displayed, and the number of possible layouts has also been increased. It’s now also possible to view selected MultiReview clips or playlist elements in an external player.
The latest release of IPDirector contains a number of improvements, most notably the addition of the IPDirector Archive Module. This enables archive and restore operations to/from nearline storage directly from IPDirector. In particular, restore functionality is enhanced – giving new options to make archive material available.
The latest version of Ingest Funnel adds new ingest sources and now makes it possible to select source clips into a storyboard before ingesting, ensuring that only relevant material needs to be brought into your system.
