16.2017 ProNews XT/XS 15.01
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 15.01The latest update to Multicam introduces a variety of new operational features – building on the capabilities of the XT4K and XS4K servers. It’s now possible to use these machines in HD mode, which allows operators to use the mix on 1 channel function on every playout channel. There are also new codecs to enable them to share content with post production and/or archive systems.
On the engineering side, Multicam 15.01 also makes possible a number of new channel configurations on the XT3 server family, on top of those now available for the XT4K and XS4K servers.
To help engineers and operators quickly see how to cable the server back panels, EVS has developed a new smartphone application for both Android and iOS, which is available from the relevant app stores, or by scanning the QR code which you’ll find in the Servers Newsletter below.
The new Xeebra video refereeing system gives officials quick and simple access to every angle of the action. It has a powerful, intuitive interface which enables dynamic layout browsing with dual screen support and
zoom functionality. Its Client/Server architecture is easily scalable, enabling simple expansion of a Xeebra setup as the number of available cameras grows.
The Epsio family is updated to work from a new 1U platform, making it an even more practical solution in increasingly congested OB Truck setups. Epsio Live production is now enabled by UHD-4K execution, for the best in augmented replays.
