INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION OF POWER

EVS’ iconic XT range of servers has been transformed with the introduction of the latest in the series – XT-VIA. Having led the live replay market for two decades, the new server represents the most significant update to EVS’ XT range yet.

Description

A new live production server offering increased UHD-4K and HD/1080p flexibility, native IP support for SMPTE 2110, and powered by EVS’ new VIA technology platform to deliver evolutive services and capabilities for greater content access and future LSM operations.

The new EVS XT-VIA is a production server offering the most reliable and fastest UHD-4K replay. With up to six channels of flexible in/out combinations, the XT-VIA drives complete UHD-4K media control from ingest to playout.
The added flexibility of the XT-VIA lets you bridge your investment to execute HD and Full-HD productions from the same server.

In addition to EVS Loop Recording technology, on-board XNet SDTI support and XNet-VIA IP networking, XT-VIA provides support of SuperMotion cameras and native XAVC-4K Intra encoding and decoding for live editing, slowmotion replays and multi-channel playback with server-to-server transfer options.

FULL LIVE UHD-4K REPLAY OPERATIONS WITH EVS MADE PRECISION AND RELIABILITY

EVS production servers changed the replay and record process by introducing a continuous loop process. Loop recording is our guarantee that you’ll never miss any of the action. With increased UHD-4K channel density and boosted internal bandwidth, XT-VIA is the most secure solution for UHD-4K operations today and tomorrow.

NEW INTERNAL PROXY FOR INCREASED FLEXIBILITY AND POWER OPTIMIZATION

XT-VIA comes up with a dual proxy on-board for optimized operations. In addition to the MJPEG Legacy used for existing workflows, XT-VIA supports a new H.264 proxy for future evolutions, both in loop recording mode.

REINFORCED CONNECTIVITY TO COPE WITH EVERY NEED

Whether you are starting at 3G-SDI, evolving to 12G-SDI, or building a nextgeneration facility using IP, XT-VIA meets your needs. The new server offers native IP support for SMPTE ST2110 and ST2022 standards as well as simplified configurations using NMOS and EMBER+.

FUTURE-READY PLATFORM ENABLED THROUGH SOFTWARE EVOLUTION

The XT-VIA server offers native support for XAVC-4K Intra encoding and decoding without transcode or further degradation of content workflows. As a 10-bit codec, this enables High Dynamic Range (HDR) productions for the most vivid UHD-4K content. With expanding capabilities from each Multicam Engine software upgrade, more native UHD-4K codecs will be supported onboard.

FULL FLEXIBILITY FOR UHD OR HD/1080P OPERATIONS

The core of the XT-VIA is the Multicam software engine, which enables the EVS designed hardware to evolve with your needs. If you build a facility for UHD-4K today, you can still flex your server investment to execute HD and Full-HD
productions with the expected EVS operations and density.

EXPANDABLE INTERNAL STORAGE

Expand your production, not your complexity. Unlike other systems in the market, XT-VIA makes storage expansion easy through a range of onboard and externally expandable options yielding up to 130+ hours in UHD-4K at 600Mbps.

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENTS

While remaining interoperable with existing EVS workflows, XT-VIA relies on EVS’ new VIA technology platform enabling evolutive capabilities for more efficient media sharing and future LSM operations.
