NBC selects EVS as production server provider
NBC Olympics continues with the announcement of its providers for the Tokyo Olympics. The network is trusting on EVS and its XT-VIA production servers for the coverage of this major event this summer.
The servers of EVS were selected for their 1080p – UHD HDR production on-site in NBC’s Tokyo and Stamford broadcast centers. The XT-VIA provides 12-plus channels of 1080p and six or more channels of UHD-4K in both SDR and HDR, with a performance level that answers the high demands of NBC Olympics’ production.
“We are extremely proud to continue to be an integral partner of NBC Olympics, helping bring to life their vision of the Olympic Games with our incredibly powerful and robust XT-VIA servers,” said Grutman.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with EVS,” said Jefferson. “The fast-paced live action of our largest-ever Olympic Games coverage will use the new XT-VIA platform to keep up with more channels of simultaneous record and help us realize our ambitions to offer 4K and HDR services at an Olympic scale.”
