An interview from the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with James Stellpflug of EVS. EVS provides its customers with reliable and innovative technology to enable the production of live, enriched video programming, allowing them to work more efficiently and boost their revenue streams. Its industry-leading broadcast and media production systems are used by broadcasters, production companies, post-production facilities, film studios, content owners and archive libraries around the globe. It spans four key markets – Sports, Entertainment, News and Media. In this interview James talks with us about the latest news from EVS including the DYVI IT-Based Video Switcher, the EVS FanCast solution and EVS Ingest Funnel.

Ushering in the dawn of IT production technologies, DYVI enables flexible creative resources and layering while bringing high-end functions to familiar switcher-like operational interfaces. Scalable, professional-grade switching makes DYVI ideal for studios with multiple control rooms and multi-venue campuses. The distributed architecture enables cross-campus to cross-continent distribution. All switching and control can be done in a different city or country – live, real time and uncompressed. Even in multi-user applications, Processing Modules can be remotely used from every control panel in the network for precise operation. One of the best things about DYVI is how simple it is to drive, whether you prefer a more traditional way of operation or opt for the new high-performance Scene-Mode.

Countless broadcasters, production houses and studios have been asking for a more efficient way to ingest content for professional-quality broadcast. In response, EVS has created Ingest Funnel, a unique portal and single interface that successfully transforms, legalizes and masters all ingest formats and content, towards ready-to-air, archive and post-production formats. The system works by analyzing content and automatically selecting the right tool, whether an EVS solution or third-party component. Best of all, this web-based application can be run remotely, without requiring additional specialized skills. A highly intuitive HTML5-based interface and simplified workflow enables users without additional technical knowledge to ingest content through easy steps. This is great for live projects, as it makes it very fast and easy to get ENG from the field crews in to the EVS servers for playout, but where Ingest Funnel also becomes interesting is that it is not just for EVS only systems. It can also drop files in to an Avid Interplay/ISIS system, or just as easily make all your files ready for Adobe Premiere. As it is designed for seamless operation with the IP Director Suite, this means that all of these incoming files can be easily logged in IP Director, enabling the whole team to be able to search and find the exact material they need.

Additionally, The next-generation C-Cast multimedia distribution platform enables customized content franchises direct to consumers, opening up new revenue avenues for rights owners. At the “FanZone,” located in the EVS booth, experts showcased real-world applications that are changing the fan viewing experience. Built on the EVS C-Cast multimedia distribution platform, the EVS FanCast solution works with Cisco’s stadium portfolio to deliver exclusive content to fans and video displays throughout the stadium – bringing higher return on emotion and boosting greater return on investment.
