EVS Expands Workflow Integration with Avid Broadcast Solutions for DVCPRO File Exchange
Integrated workflows between EVS XS and XT servers controlled by MulticamLSM, IPDirector, or the new Insio, as well as Avid® systems like ISIS and Interplay® were recently demonstrated at the EVS booth during IBC 2009.
Serge Comes , Media Product Manager at EVS: “With our recent integration of DVCPRO HD codec natively supported by our XT and XS servers, we are aiming to maximize the workflow integration with Avid systems. Although EVS already natively supports the Avid DNxHD® codec, the integration withPanasonic codecs provides more flexibility in terms of file exchanges between EVS and Avid broadcast and post-production systems.”
Native support of DVCPRO HD and DVCPRO 50 codecs by EVS servers and the Avid Transfer Manager solution allows for efficient and high-speed exchanges between EVS production and Avid post-production systems without deteriorating the native quality.
Content recorded on the XT or XS servers during live events or studio recordings can be available directly as MXF OPAtom files, ready to be edited in the Avid Media Composer® timeline. EVS content management software IPDirector combined with XTAccess allow users to manage the generation of MXF OPAtom files and their transfer to Avid broadcast solutions.
The import of EVS clips can be managed manually by the operator or automatically using an autoscan application. Final edits can also be transferred back on the EVS platform for reliable, instant playout management.
