Reliably robust workstations for Live Content Production

IPDirector workstations are EVS designed to meet the highest demands of live content production.

IPD 1 U (hardware) back


IPDirector hardware workstations are EVS designed to meet the highest demands of live content production. 

These workstations host IPDirector content management software and provide users with serial control to EVS multicam servers.  An SDI card for easily connecting video for direct display inside the IPDirector software interface (only on AVH model), transportable drive bays for sharing media content, and option like onboard RAID for storing content are housed in its reliably robust hardware (only on 2U). Offered in 1U or 2U form factors, IPDirector workstations are part of the EVS Live Content Solution core for taking your productions to the next level. 


Reliable EVS Hardware

IPDirector Hardware platforms are designed and built by the same engineering core which built the XT series of servers. These are built to be traveled in OB Production Trucks worldwide and always function.

Integrated SDI Input Option

No need to worry about adding a 3rd party card or difficulties with drivers and support.  The integrated SDI card in the IPDirector Hardware allows you to easily connect video for direct display inside the IPDirector software interfaces.

Redundant PSU

When you are building a live content system to perform beyond expectations, you cannot risk a single workstation to fail during operations.  For this purpose, EVS has a redundant power supply on all hardware workstations. 

Small Client for tight spaces

Space means everything for a client workstation. This 1U IPDirector is a short chassis with a dense design for needed connections in any situation.
