The Central and Flexible Ingest solution reduces the time between the ingest of live multi-camera feeds, to the production and post-production stages in studio entertainment and news environments. By leveraging EVS’ XS line of production servers (XS-NEO and XS-VIA) and the IPD-VIA Ingest or Record apps, the solution provides fast, simple ingest with dynamic, concurrent support of multiple formats, codecs and framerates, including 24p cinematic framerate and Long-GOP XDCAM.

 

Solution benefits

Remote accessibility

Thanks to the solution’s web-based user interface, your staff can manage and monitor all live ingest processes from anywhere at any time, from their laptop at home or back at the production site.

Shorter production cycles

Through an intuitive HTML 5 web interface, the user can schedule live feed recordings directly from one or multiple EVS servers onto a central storage for edit while capture, increasing productivity.

Secure and stress-free operations

EVS’ proven track record shows its technology works time and time again without fail, and the loop recording functionality of the server guarantees uninterrupted recording and access to your media at any time.

Fast and efficient creativity

EVS technology saves valuable time for your creativity by reducing time spent looking for shots and managing content through integrated multicamera editing, easy to find metadata.

Scalability

Stack your servers to scale-out as you need while maintaining multi-camera groups for faster post-production. The user can then define which channels are linked to each other throughout the server stack.

COMPONENTS

XS-NEO

 

Software-defined studio production server

XS-NEO is EVS’ software-defined server designed to offer simple and efficient ingest for studio and post-production operations. Hosted on EVS’ reliable PMR processing module, XS-NEO embraces all of the benefits of COTS hardware, while supporting SDI/IP based productions and also delivering EVS’ unique loop recording technology to users. The server supports other framerates such as 24p and Long-GOP native encoding. Channels can be individually configured and changed without having to reboot the system.

XS-VIA

 

Studio production server

 

With XS-VIA, broadcast center and studio operations can also benefit from EVS’ trademark hardware platform. Optimized for the recording of multiple audio and video feeds, as well as instant control and multiple channels of playback operations, XS-VIA offers higher 1080p and UHD-4K channel density and supports both SDI and IP to suit all your production needs. The server can be scaled easily with the XNet-VIA network capability for practical and fast turnaround environments.
