As IBC2018 draws to a successful conclusion, visitors would have become familiar to IBC TV, the dedicated news and information service that covers interviews, debates, conference sessions and other key moments of the annual trade show.
Live content is produced on-site and distributed in real-time across multiple platforms, including the IBC website, social media platforms and to screens throughout the RAI exhibition and convention centre in Amsterdam.
Supporting the live production system are EVS’ XT-VIA servers and XStore central storage system. Production content is exchanged between the studio, control room and the central datacentre over a fibre connection at 10Gbps and 40Gbps through an Arista IP spine-and-leaf network. Remote control and management of the bank of EVS servers on the EVS stand is enabled by IHSE Draco keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) extenders. Production staff in the production centre have full control over the servers, enabling them to manage and produce the live TV channels.
Mark Hempel, head of product management at IHSE, said: “IHSE KVM technology provides the essential control, management and operation of EVS broadcast tools, delivering instant access and flexibility in all types of production systems.
“[The IBC TV centre] is an ideal demonstration of how IHSE solutions can enhance productivity in the broadcast environment. The successful collaboration between EVS and IHSE delivers greater efficiency and streamlined operation for XS/XS servers and XFile3 users.”
