Draco Video equips OB van from United Studios of Israel with EVS’ LiveCeption replay solution
The largest and most advanced TV production facilities in Israel, United Studios of Israel, also known as Herzliya Studios, have recently invested on EVS LiveCeption Pure replay solution through distributor Draco Video.
The solution has been deployed within the ‘OB van 1’ unit, to serve the live production of the new Israeli Premier League season. The use of LiveCeption Pure will be extended to the other live sports and entertainment productions and later installed within its large-scale studio facilities located just outside Tel Aviv.
Assaf Roet, owner at Draco Video, said “EVS’ brand name is very strong in the local broadcast market, but is often considered as a premium product that is financially out of reach for many. When the time had come for United Studios to upgrade their old equipment, LiveCeption Pure offered us a unique opportunity to give them access to EVS’ leading replay technology while keeping their investment costs under control.”
The solution is formed by two EVS XT-GO replay servers with one XFile3 connected archive and transcoding system. The servers offer the essential functionalities such as uninterrupted live feed recording, slow and super motion replays, as well as clipping and playlist control. It also comes with flexible configurations and integrates all new formats from HD/ FHD to UHD-4K, SDR to HDR as well as SDI/IP connectivity.
Quentin Grutman, Chief Customer Officer at EVS concluded: “We’ve been working with Draco Video for over ten years, and during that period of time, we’ve managed to build a strong and valuable partnership to serve our customers in the best of ways. Through our joint efforts, we’ve delivered our services to our customers in many news and entertainment production environments and we’re now very excited to see our LiveCeption Pure solution being deployed for Israel’s top sports events”.
