Flexible I/O

With support of multiple options, the XS4K meets your business needs whether you are starting at 3G-SDI, looking to use 12G-SDI, or building a next generation facility using IP standards following the AIMS roadmap.

In 3G-SDI modes,  a choice of 2-sample interleave or square division methods of transport means flexibility. With the utilization of 12G-SDI, the XS4K allows uncompressed connections for simple facility design, and with onboard connections for IP I/O options, the XS4K is ready for your next generation of IP media fabric.

Native sharable XAVC-4K Content

The XS4K live production server enables native support for XAVC-4K intra encoding and decoding without needing to transcode or further degrade content workflows. As a 10-bit codec this enables productions with higher dynamic range (HDR) operations to produce the most vivid UHD-4K content.

Mix-on-1 Channel for HD and 1080p 

When playback of content and the ability to manage single channel playout is required, XS4K gives you the ability to manage this action with a single channel. Through advanced playout capabilities the ability to mix transitions between content in playlists,  on-air playback and news operations can be efficient with single channel utilization.

Loop recording technology

EVS production servers changed the replay and record process by introducing never-ending loop recording technology. Now the preferred technology and the industry-standard, loop recording guarantees you’ll never miss any of the action.

Expandable Internal storage

Expand your production, not your complexity. Unlike other systems in the market, the XS4K makes storage expansion easy through a range of on-board and externally expandable options. This enables the recording of over 130 hours of UHD-4K content at 600Mbps.
