14.02 & 15.00 – August 2016
Dear EVS Operator,
Welcome to the new issue of Operators’ ProNews – with
information on all the latest products and updates from EVS. This
month, alongside the usual range of updates to functions and usability,
latest update to Multicam introduces major new features, headlined by
a brand new Multiviewer that includes tally support and up to 4
individual Multiviewer outputs and 2 external inputs. This provides
increased flexibility and visual feedback to operators.
On the engineering side, Multicam 15.00 now incorporates PC LAN
redundancy, including DHCP functionality.
Monitor has also been updated to take account of the enhancements that
have been made to EVS server hardware and software. It is now possible to
see network information for PC LAN and GbE connections on the server, and
add hosts to the XNet Monitor based on their Host Name. All this gives you
a better overall view on the status of your machines whilst in operation
or when preparing a setup.
LSM Connect 2.06 has been updated to help you
streamline workflows – particularly when creating, tagging and searching
for content. There is enhanced visual feedback for clip locations and
server capacity as well as the possibilities to flag playlists for
archive, and select an EVS server to push your clips to.
XFile 3’s headline new feature is the introduction of
the Media Manager tab, which enables operators to manage, organise and
transfer content between local/network drives and EVS servers. Using the
Media Manager tab, it’s now even easier to streamline workflows between
locations, studios and OB trucks.
latest version of Epsio Zoom introduces a new Keyframe Mode to enable
the operator to quickly produce a highlight sequence which follows a
player or object in action. The operator adds a series of keyframes, and
the software then fills in the gaps – interpolating the size and location
of the zoom area across the selected media.
to the MultiReview interface mean that more record channels
can be displayed, and the number of possible layouts has also been
increased. It’s now also possible to view selected MultiReview clips or
playlist elements in an external player.
latest release of IPDirector contains a number of improvements, most notably
the addition of the IPDirector Archive Module. This enables archive and
restore operations to/from nearline storage directly from IPDirector. In
particular, restore functionality is enhanced – giving new options to
make archive material available.
latest version of Ingest Funnel adds new ingest sources and now makes
it possible to select source clips into a storyboard before ingesting,
ensuring that only relevant material needs to be brought into your
new DYVI production suite is a flexible, scalable
IT-based switcher system designed to go beyond the constraints of
traditional, hardware-based desk design.
DYVI is driven from Control Panels, behind which sit Processing Modules
which contain all the video-processing resources.
This architecture means that your DYVI setup can easily expand or
contract to suit the exact requirements of your production. In any
configuration, DYVI offers the most powerful DVEs in the switcher
industry and a range of unique pre-built effects and creative tools.
Using DYVI, all switching and control can be done remotely, live, in
real-time and uncompressed. The system already supports 4K UHD workflows
and its upgradeable GPU-based video processing means that it can quickly
adapt to future formats.
