Flexible I/O

When choosing a video production server, you need to ensure future-proofing. The XS3 provides the flexibility to operate with up to 12 ingest channels today, six ingest and six playout tomorrow. The XS3 can also manage fill & key operations, providing six channels of fill with an associated key channel for each output.

Loop recording technology

The live environment doesn’t wait for anything, and neither should your recording process. The XS3 is based on EVS’ loop recording technology, which continually records every input at all times. With reliability and access to all content, XS3 has onboard native encoding and a proxy for every recorder so your production teams have EVS’ always recording technology.

Native codec support with double encoding

XS3 enables native encoding of industry-standard codecs so you can save time while attaining higher quality. You don’t need to transcode every image because your video server forces you to use one codec and XS3 allows you to choose the one that fits your production. With parallel encoding of proxys, as well as XDCAM-HD encoding options, XS3 is your native codec choice.

Expandable storage

XS3 provides expandable internal and external storage that is part of the server. This allows you to keep more of your rapid turn-around production content on high-performance storage with up to 380+ hours of HD content per server.

Supports HD to 1080p, to UHD-4K

XS3 offers up a platform that will adjust to your facility’s changing needs. This is especially important if 1080p, UHD-4K or other formats are in your future production evolutions.
