EVS serves up Asian Games for HBS, TWI

EVS will
provide a production workflow that enables the host broadcaster of the
games, DAGBS, (Doha Asian Games Broadcast Services – a joint venture
between HBS and TWI) to deliver a series of sophisticated applications
to international broadcasters.

These include
the media management of 42 different feeds and multiple broadcasts,
real-time and daily highlights, and finished edit and playouts.

than 60 EVS XT2 servers will be used for the production and playout of
the Games. Fourteen XT2 servers, combined with archiving and gateway
devices XStore and XFile, will constitute the central media server
dedicated to the acquisition, production and archiving of the different
media available for multi production and post production purposes.
Fifty one IP Directors will be used to control, log and browse footage
in the media server.

Luc Doneux, EVS
head of big sport events said: “The Asian Games are remarkable, not
only for the fact that the broadcast audience is so vital for their
success, but also that the technological infrastructure will be the
most advanced of any major sporting event to allow instant access to
all the media all the time to all the broadcasters working in a live
and near-live environment.”

“The Doha
Games are a great finale to what has been an amazing year of sport for
EVS. Our live and near live production solutions were used by host
broadcasters at all the major global sporting events, including the
Commonwealth Games, the football World Cup, the Torino Olympics and the
Tour de France.”

Every second of
every event is logged and archived through 32 EVS IP Director logging
stations which attach logs and keywords to the different video content
ingested into the block servers.

An additional 12 IP Director browsing stations will be operated by
editors to retrieve media clips and video content that they need to
prepare their edits on EVS systems or third party post production

Seven EVS IP
Director will manage the media across the different channels, in order
to track what is being recorded, where and to advise what content is
available on each server at any given moment.

Nearly all of
the edits will be produced with EVS’ non-linear editor CleanEdit.
Footage is browsed and retrieved with the IP Director and then
transferred on one of the five XStore nearline storage platform
delivered by EVS and made available on the edit stations.

The multiple
broadcasters present at the Games include NBC, NHK, CCTV and HKTV and
all will benefit from EVS’ live and near live production systems as
they’ll receive the different feeds from the events to create their own

EVS’ instant
tapeless technology was also used by HBS at the World Cup in Germany
and received much praise for it’s instant reactivity. EVS is undeniably
the leading provider of live and near live editing software and
hardware in the sport broadcast industry.
