EVS and Vizrt forge deeper technical alliance to impulse newsroom playout automation and control advancements

Leading the charge in real-time graphics and live production solutions for content creators, Vizrt unveils an elevated phase in its technical alliance with EVS, a global frontrunner in live video production solutions.

For years, the fusion of Vizrt’s flagship studio automation solution, Viz Mosart, with EVS XT and XS-series servers has empowered broadcasters with control and adaptability for seamless 24/7 playout operation.

Now, this support expands to include the XS-NEO, EVS’s software-defined server. In the company’s own words, building upon EVS’s legacy of speed and reliability, the XS-NEO introduces codec flexibility essential for modern news operations.

This fresh collaboration merges Vizrt’s proficiency in automated production tools with EVS’s prowess in live broadcast technology, aiming to furnish a turnkey solution for both ingest and automation-driven playout. According to the product specifications, new XS-NEO server from EVS empowers broadcasters to seamlessly play multiple formats, including XDCam, and facilitates playback from local high-performance RAID disks or directly from a facility’s central storage, streamlining workflows for maximum efficiency.

“Viz Mosart remains at the forefront of automated multi-format live production, constantly evolving to meet industry demands. By integrating XS-NEO, we enhance our expertise in the software-defined newsroom, providing unmatched flexibility for our customers’ workflows,” explains Andy Newton, Senior Product Manager at Vizrt.

Christophe Wittevrongel, Senior Solutions Manager at EVS, remarks, “As legacy ‘End of Life’ Ingest and Playout systems persist as a key challenge for newsrooms, having our software-defined XS-NEO fully validated for Viz Mosart control ensures smooth multi-format playout – including native XDCam support – directly within the News operation.”

He adds, “Our objective is to deliver a fully supported, hyper-reliable ingest and playout solution that directly addresses one of the most critical aspects of Newsroom operation, seamlessly integrating with the existing infrastructure.”

As a certified solution partner of EVS, Vizrt remains committed to ongoing collaboration with the live video production specialist, ensuring that their integrated solutions consistently evolve to meet the evolving demands of the broadcast industry, company states.
