Reliably robust workstations for Live Content Production

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


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, transportable drive bays for sharing media content, and option like onboard RAID for storing content are housed in its reliably robust hardware. 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 & 10Gbps onboard

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, IPDirector has a redundant power supply, as well as Dual 10Gbps SFP+ connections.

Removable SATA Drive Option

Media has to be accessible for every user are every workstation.  Whether your production is large or small, you can use the transportable drive bay options to bring in Terabytes of content to your IPDirector managed applications without needing extra hardware.

Onboard RAID Option

When your OB production Truck or Event requires persistent storage, but your facility does not need the scale or performance of Xstore shared storage, IPDirector has an option to provide simple easy to use onboard storage offerings.
