Description

Xedio Dispatcher automatically detects connected devices (P2, XDCAM or XDCAM EX cameras and players/readers) and instantly displays their content, enabling immediate media browsing for clip selection, sub clipping and/or fast rough cut editing as well as logging. Once selected or created, clips, sub clips and consolidated edits can be easily transferred from the ENG device to any EVS server for further production or post-production operations. Simultaneous transfers to multiple destinations in various formats are supported thanks to XEDIO on the fly SD/HD rewrapping and transcoding capabilities.

Auto-discovery of ENG devices

XEDIO Dispatcher dynamically recognizes each plugged-in SD or HD ENG devices, being Sony XDCA M, XDCA M EX, Panasonic P2, Canon or JVC camcorders, cards or disks’ readers - and instantly displays all the recorded media with their related metadata (clip name, thumbnail, Time In, Time Out, and clip duration). All these clips are instantly available for reviewing with simple thumbnail selection.

Instant Media Access without file duplication

Because the media are made available directly from the ENG device, there is no need for media duplication, or for any transcoding/rewrapping process Thanks to the XEDIO Dispatcher intuitive interface, the operator can choose amongst the hours of clips, review every sequence, and speed the access to content.

On-the-spot Logging Operations

Keywords’ grids and log sheets can be easily imported from EVS’ IPDirector system into XEDIO Dispatcher, enabling logging of the selected clips or consolidated storyboards. Created logs (metadata, ratings, keywords…) are visible as locators on the timeline in XEDIO Dispatcher’s player view.

Full Virtual Clipping & Storyboarding

Because XEDIO Dispatcher offers full virtual actions, clip creation is a simple and smooth operation that does not require rendering operations. XEDIO Dispatcher offers an easy and efficient way for journalists and shooting crews to consolidate their rough cut edits into a storyboard timeline. Virtual clips, rough cut edits and playlists are then ready to be transferred for playout or further production operations.

Seamless integration with IPDirector

The clips can be directly managed by IPDirector if dropped on its nearline. It is also possible to export high resolution and low-resolution media to IPDirector workflows.
