New two-channel EVS XS server for studios
EVS now offers its XS server, which is specifically designed for tapeless ingest, production and playout in studios, in two- and four-channel configurations. The new two-channel entry-level server model offers a simple and cost-efficient VTR replacement solution for all types of studios looking for the most reliable tapeless alternatives and improvements in productivity.
The new XS server supports a wide variety of acquisition and delivery formats, including a large number of natively supported SD and HD codecs. This gives a crucial advantage to studio productions looking for the flexibility of camcorder file acquisition combined with post-production in SD or HD.
The XS servers’ two or four channels can be controlled by multiple software systems, such as EVS’ own IPDirector content management software, and Insio, the latest production software, which allows for control of the recording of multiple camera feeds for cutting, clipping, transfer to post production and more. Additionally, the server’s open architecture allows it to be controlled by a number of third-party systems, such as automation and switchers, and to be fully integrated into any MAM infrastructure.
