Ingest, create and play

The IPDirector® live production asset management (PAM) suite features simple to use (no special skills are required), dynamic applications for ingest and playout control, logging, content search and browsing, editing, and social media publishing. With its open, modular architecture, IPDirector easily scales up and down to adapt to various production needs. Thanks to EVS’ Technology Partner program, IPDirector allows for easy integration and fast media exchange with any third-party system.

Core benefits

  • Intuitive interfaces

    IPDirector’s intuitive interface gives production and digital media teams the ability to quickly find content and swiftly create and organize clips, reducing stress in demanding live production environments.

  • Scalable solutions

    Start with one workstation or scale to hundreds - IPDirector lets you easily add resources as productions require. Add ingest and playout channels, or new users to your production with an infrastructure that can stack and scale at the pace of your business.

  • Create from anywhere

    IPDirector is extendable with editorial web tools like IPWeb, an HTML5 web app that gives users instant access to content for browsing, clip creation and transfer – no matter where they are.

  • Flexible logging functions

    When dealing with live content, simple media labels don’t suffice. IPDirector allows your team to implement flexible metadata profiles and timecoded annotations that fit your editorial needs and your content.

  • Reach a broader audience

    The social media publishing module allows digital media teams to easily publish single or multiple clips and playlists to platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, generating extra revenue as well as increasing engagement time.

  • Complete collaboration

    IPDirector provides instant access to both EVS video server content as well as traditional storage solutions for more efficient collaboration amongst production teams.

IPDirector 1U/2U

IPDirector hardware workstations are EVS-built to meet the highest demands of live production. Offered in 1U or 2U form factors, these workstations host IPDirector content management software and provide users with direct visibility and control of EVS video servers.

Database server

EVS Live PAM and file orchestration workflows benefit from a high availability backend that ensures your production center keeps operating. Combining high-end components in a 1U small form factor system, EVS’ database servers guarantee a reliable execution of these workflows in every size of live production facility.

PMZ hypervisor

The PMZ hypervisor is designed to virtualize EVS backend tools, particularly for mobile production setups. It features an HCI architecture with software-defined storage to allow you to easily scale out for more processing power whenever needed.

Remote controllers

The BEPLAY remote controller is used for reviewing and editing content. It is easily configurable and offers maximum control for fast turnaround productions.

The MPlay remote controller is an intuitive panel that is used for the playout of clips, playlists and graphics. It lets a single operator control up to four channels simultaneously and guarantees fast and efficient play-to-air operations, including fill & key graphics and ganged clips. All MPlay functions are fully configurable.
