EVS’ XT series servers and Xfile systems to be supported by IHSE’s KVM solutions
IHSE and EVS have announced an advanced technology partnership to enhance live production workflows for the EVS XT series server and Xfile3 gateway and removable storage system.
As part of this partnership, IHSE has developed a specialised keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) package based on the Draco tera compact series of KVM matrix system that supports both current and future connectivity requirements for EVS systems.
At 2018 NAB Show, the companies routed a fibre link between IHSE’s booth and EVS’ booth to demonstrate long-distance connectivity using dual EVS LSM (Live Slow Motion) remote-control panels at a single workstation. The demonstration highlighted how incorporating IHSE technology enables faster turnaround and easy access to enriched graphics for live events and mobile production.
EVS recently opened a new training centre in New Jersey, incorporating IHSE’s Draco compact matrix system to enable dynamic switching during hands-on training sessions. EVS also demonstrated IHSE’s KVM systems inside its “EVS Live on Tour” demo van, which travels the US, giving customers on-site demonstrations of the latest EVS live-production solutions.
Based on the Draco compact series of switch and extender solutions, the KVM system supports all connectivity for video management and LSM remote control over RS422 — all within the same KVM switch environment. In addition, IHSE’s new 474-BSS upgrade card supports up to two EVS LSM units at the same workstation. By using integrated KVM to connect the EVS systems, LSM opens enhanced capabilities to share multiple servers from a single remote control with “unmatched speed” for slow-motion and live-editing operations, said the companies.
Manuel Greisinger, head of sales for IHSE, added: “By partnering with EVS, IHSE is helping to improve live production workflows the world over. Combining our technology with EVS’ powerful and world-renowned live-production solution means that, together, we can collaborate to deliver unique workflow functionality focused on productivity.”
