EVS is partnering with technology providers to introduce the Unified Stadium offering that will be demonstrated at the 2018 NAB Show. Unified Stadium gives sports teams and venue operators the ability to produce enriched video content and control its delivery to multiple screens on gameday.
“Delivering an entertaining experience inside sports venues has never been more important. The onus is on teams and leagues to engage audiences to maintain live attendance at a time when the quality of at-home broadcast experiences is so high,” said Benoit Quirynen, Chief Market Officer at EVS. “By deploying the latest live production technology, venues can create experiences that capitalize on the use of enriched video content to add to the atmosphere of live sports or cultural events.”
Unified Stadium is comprised of multiple integrations between EVS’ live production tools and several technology providers, including ChyronHego and Trans-Lux. Alongside integrations with EVS’ renowned replay and content management solutions such as its XT servers, LSM remote controls and IPDirector PAM, Unified Stadium’s centerpiece is the DYVI switcher, which is used by multiple sports venues across the United States, including at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants MLB team and at Prudential Center for the New Jersey Devils NHL team.
The DYVI switcher is built on IP technology and features a software-defined architecture, so it can be customized for any in-venue operation. Unified Stadium sees it integrated with ChyronHego’s Click Effects PRIME engine – something done for the first time at Prudential Center. Here, operators can create graphics and virtual signage content using Click Effects and recall them with the switcher. Prudential Center then uses DYVI to trigger the delivery of graphics to its massive scoreboard and any other in-arena screens.
