EVS joins forces with Haivision for remote replay operations in sport broadcasting
EVS has announced a partnership with Haivision. The agreement will provide EVS a solution that will allow its replay operators of live sports broadcasting to work in remote.
For this work, Haivision is using its Makito X Series of real-time video encoders and decoders to generate low latency, encoded IP video streams from its XT-VIA live productions servers in venues to remote LSM-VIA controllers over public internet. According to both companies, the new solution will allow 4K/UHD resolutions. As it uses the public internet, the new system works with SRT network protocol.
Thanks to this, the EVS operators will be able to watch their video assets while operating the LSM-VIA as if they were in the same location as the XT-VIA servers. “When the replay operator cannot be on-site, the Haivision solution completes the EVS replay environment by providing the best interaction possible for remote operators, even over widely-available and cost-effective public internet connections,” said Nicolas Bourdon, Chief Marketing Officer, EVS.
“Even before the pandemic, broadcasters had been transitioning to remote IP workflows to bring efficiency to their operations,” said Peter Maag, Haivision’s CMO and EVP Strategic Partnerships. “Today’s realities have simply accelerated those plans. Haivision is thrilled to satisfy the demands of one of the industry’s most demanding user – the EVS replay operator – providing them with a flexible solution that lets them do what they do best, from anywhere.”
