EVS and Gearhouse partner to pioneer remote 4K production
Booth 8.B90, IBC2015, 10 September, 2015 – In the first workflow solution of its kind, EVS’ DYVI switcher will cut together 4K camera signals delivered via an IP infrastructure as part of Gearhouse Broadcast’s live remote production demonstration on its booth at IBC2015.
The demonstration will feature the transport of UHD footage from a Hitachi SK-UHD4000 4K camera in position on the Hitachi Kokusai Electric Europe GmbH booth (11.D39). Feeds from this and a HD unit will be sent via fibre to the Gearhouse booth (10.B39) where they’ll be cut together using the DYVI production switcher which will also carry audio and comms signals.
DYVI’s integration in Gearhouse’s remote production workflow solution was first introduced to attendees of a demonstration day at its headquarters earlier this year. Here it was used in a HD set up while the solution presented at IBC will now support 4K feeds. This required no additional upgrade to the DYVI switcher as it’s designed to be utilised for both HD and UHD signals.
“For a while we’ve been developing real-world 4K workflows for our customers at the same time as planning future-proof IP remote production infrastructures. This solution bridges the gap between the two technologies and we’re incredibly excited to present it at IBC this year,” said Kevin Fitzgerald, head of systems and product sales at Gearhouse Broadcast. “DYVI is an integral part of this workflow and its ability to easily scale from the previous HD set up to 4K has been hugely beneficial as we’ve been implementing the solution.”
EVS’ DYVI is the only system that allows remote sharing of production resources and can transfer uncompressed video and auxiliary data from any remote location. This benefits broadcasters by reducing their operational costs and increasing the flexibility of production and allowing more space for creativity.
“DYVI’s inclusion in such an innovative remote production solution sits right alongside EVS’ commitment to offering future-proof IP-based solutions for the live environment,” said Henry Alexander, svp market and product at EVS. “Remote production is quickly going to be a huge step-change in live workflow solutions and EVS is at the forefront of the technology that’s making that happen.”
Gearhouse Broadcast will be exhibiting its live remote 4K production solution on its booth (10.B39). DYVI will also be on display on the EVS booth (8.B90) during the show which runs from 11 - 15 September 2015 at the RAI Amsterdam.
