Ingest, manage, create.

The IPDirector® content management suite features dynamic applications for live media content browsing, control, edit and playout, relying on a central database. With its open, modular architecture, IPDirector® can be adapted to any production environment and allows for easy integration and media exchange with any third-party system. Each interface is easy-to-use, guaranteeing fast and efficient content turnaround.

Core benefits

  • Intuitive interfaces

    IPDirector®’s intuitive interfaces give you the ability to quickly find the content that you need, and easily organize your clips, even in the middle of the most demanding live productions.

  • Scalable solutions

    IPDirector® lets you easily add ingest and playout channels for your production with an infrastructure that can stack and scale at the pace of your business.

  • Work from anywhere

    IPDirector® is extendable with editorial web tools like IPWeb, an HTML5 web app that gives users instant access to content – 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 new Publish Add-On enabled by VIA Flow allows you to easily publish single or multiple clips and playlists to social media platforms such as Facebook, generating extra revenue as well as increased engagement time.

  • Complete collaboration

    IPDirector® provides access to content, incoming feeds and multi-site contribution for more efficient collaboration amongst production teams.

Database server

EVS LIVE PAM and file orchestration workflows demand 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 an infallible execution of these workflows in every size of live production facility.

IPDirector 1U/2U

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

PMZ hypervisor

The PMZ hypervisor is designed to virtualize EVS backend tools in 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 rollout to air operations, including fill & key graphics and ganged clips. All Mplay functions are fully configurable with IPDirector software.
