EVS Names Flowics Certified Solutions Partner to Integrate Broadcast Graphics Into X-One Switcher
Flowics has been named an EVS Certified Solutions Partner for the EVS X-One unified live production system. The partnership integrates Flowics Graphics, second screen, and streaming extensions with the X-One system, giving users a tested and validated solution for managing all overlay graphics in X-One.
X-One is designed to allow a single operator to efficiently control a full live production using a comprehensive toolset accessible through the system’s set of intuitive interfaces. Compact and easy-to-deploy, the unified system is ideal for creating substantial cost savings on smaller-scale productions using up to six cameras and for providing the broadcast-quality output customers have come to expect.
Flowics brings several advantages to X-One graphics-creation workflows, including cloud-based HTML5 broadcast graphics, multiplatform audience participation and social media integration, live data integration for broadcast graphics, a web-based graphics editor and control interface to manage graphics remotely, and interactive overlays for live streams on Twitch and Facebook Live — all with no hardware or on-premise installation required.
“Our partnership with Flowics enhances the experience for our X-One customers, who now have access to everything they need to add qualitative and professional graphics to their productions,” says François Gillet, solution specialist at EVS. “In addition to the platform, Flowics can also offer creative services for customers who do not have the internal resources to create their own graphic content packages to enrich their live programming.”
Through this integration, Flowics and X-One’s joint users can take advantage of Flowics’ HTML5 cloud graphics editor to create dynamic overlays and manage graphics playlists in X-One, with a special focus on live sports productions, including player substitutions, scorebugs, match stats, and more. To enhance X-One production, they can also create interactive experiences for web and mobile with Flowics Second Screen, and they can use Flowics Streaming Extensions to add interactive overlays for audience participation and to increase watch times for live streams produced with X-One. Finally, with Flowics Data Connectors for Graphics, users can easily incorporate live data and sports statistics into their graphics, reducing time and costs for creating and managing data-driven graphics.
The integration with X-One happens through the NDI protocol using the Flowics NDI Converter App (available as a free download from this link). With this app, users will turn Flowics HTML5 graphics into an NDI video signal to be used as an input into the EVS X-One.
“We are thrilled to join the EVS Technology Partner Program, and we look forward to working together to simplify live production workflows,” says Gabriel Baños, CEO and founder of Flowics. “Flowics Graphics is a perfect complement to the X-One live production system, empowering production teams with live data integration and viewer participation features that help to captivate audiences.”
