EVS develops rapid editing tool for cloud-based or on-premise infrastructures with the support of Blackbird
EVS announces the launch of IPD-VIA Create. It is a web application designed for live Production Asset Management (PAM) solution, called MediaCeption Signature, to access a non-linear editing (NLE) tool all within the same platform.
The application was designed in collaboration with Blackbird and is fully integrated into EVS’ ecosystem. It is actually the latest application to join the IPD-VIA web-based PAM platform.
IPD-VIA Create provides a video framing effect, color correction feature and allows the choice between Thumbnail and Timeline displays. It is a toolset thought for storyboard editing, enabling journalists and producers to begin drafting the first cut of their stories while the action is happening.
The storyboards can be exported as is, while at the same time more experienced editors can pick up these projects and continue to refine them in the timeline view. The IPD-VIA Create sequences are available in craft editing solutions, such as Avid Media Composer or Adobe Premiere Pro.
Thanks to Blackbird’s cloud-native technology, the application can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud, depending on the needs of the production.
“IPD-VIA Create is an exciting addition to our end-to-end live PAM workflow, as it enables faster and more efficient editing in live production, which ultimately will help production teams reach the finish line faster,” highlights Nicolas Bourdon, Chief Marketing Officer at EVS.
“This is a very exciting moment for Blackbird and EVS. The profound knowledge, experience and skills of both companies’ teams have combined to deliver a product we are incredibly proud of and has the potential to unlock huge value for the global media industry for years to come,” assures Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough.
