EVS provided Mediapro with seven HD XT production servers for the ingest of up to 28 incoming feeds; a central storage infrastructure with a fiber channel fabric topology and a capacity of 30TB; 27 IPDirector workstations for ingest, logging, browsing and playout control features; four MulticamLSMs for live editing; 12 HD CleanEdit NLE workstations for news and highlights editing; and two HD XT (four-channel) servers controlled by the vsnmulticom automation system for playout.
