TVN Mobile Production chooses XT-VIA to drive industry's most innovative OB concept TVN-Ü6

Liège, Belgium, September 5, 2019


Hannover-based mobile television services specialist addresses UHD-4K demand with major server upgrade

TVN Mobile Production, part of Germany’s TVN Group, is upgrading its XT3 live production server fleet to EVS' next-generation XT-VIA servers. The Hannover-based mobile television services specialist is installing the industry’s most powerful multi-channel servers in its TVN-Ü3, TVN-Ü4, TVN-Ü5 and in its all new TVN-Ü6, the most innovative OB concept on the market that has just been introduced. The new servers will be used for its premium live productions of Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 football games for DFL host broadcaster Sportcast, as well as the UEFA competitions Champions League, Europa League and European Qualifiers.

EVS’ XT-VIA servers will provide more capacity and greater flexibility to produce content in multiple formats including Full HD 1080p, UHD-4K and HDR, as well as offering the latest generation of IP connectivity, enhanced channel density and media sharing network capacity. Primarily used to replay, edit and produce all content going into TVN’s OB vehicles, the future-proofed deployment means that productions can transition to IP at a later date. The VIA-based solutions from EVS already benefit from enhanced live IP support of industry tech stack standards such as ST2110 and NMOS, which means added system flexibility.  

Additionally, TVN Mobile Production has invested in the new XNet-VIA Live IP network that expands the capabilities of the XT-VIA servers by creating a faster sharing environment. This will be deployed along with multiple XHub-VIA switches that secure and connect the XT-VIA servers over 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and three XFile3 systems that are used for all file flow requirements.

Markus Osthaus, Managing Director of TVN Mobile Production, said: “As a leader in mobile television services, we are continually looking to set new live production standards. By switching to EVS’ VIA platform, we are now prepared for its future innovations and to take on increasingly challenging workflows. We can now work across the latest formats with the industry standard EVS tools knowing we have the speed, reliability and proven performance needed for such high-profile productions.

XT-VIA will be among the latest live production tools that EVS will be showing on stand 8.B90 at IBC2019.
