Ingest directly into the cloud

Live news and entertainment typically need efficient and fast paced production, often driven by a single operator.

EVS is known for its world class ingest solutions with our XT-VIA, XT-GO and XS-VIA and XS-NEO live production servers. To manage the archiving and storage needs of all the ingested content, our LiveCeption and MediaCeption ecosystems rely on XFile3 and VIA XSquare.

With the integration of LucidLink in XFile3, VIA Xsquare and IPDirector Nearline, you can store your ingested content directly in the cloud. Thanks to the cloud filespaces of LucidLink, editors, graphic designers and other live- and post-production teams can collaborate securely on all the ingested lo-res or hi-res media.

The intergration with LucidLink enables immediate access to the ingested footage, without downloading or syncing files and with end-to-end encryption. Your teams can perform video and post-production editing directly in the cloud, enabling many possible remote production workflows.
