EVS serves up content for E! Entertainment

E! Entertainment has moved to a tapeless production environment in its studio, supported by four EVS HD servers. The servers will also be used for file-based transfer to an Avid nonlinear editor.

The project was originally designed for transferring content from the E! Entertainment studio to the company’s post-production area for editing (within an Avid Technology shared storage workflow) and to provide a path to HD for the studio. It since has increased to include the ability to share footage between multiple divisions, including two other studios and a Web-based division.

All EVS equipment, including the XT[2] production servers, support various broadcast codecs, including Avid’s DNxHD codec. This native support means that E! never has to render content for transfer to post production, and editors can start to work on the content the instant it is ingested in the XT[2], even while recording is still in process.

The current production environment is comprised of four six-channel SD XT[2] Spotboxes, two IPDirectors, two XFiles, and XTAccess for transfer to and from Avid. The setup will eventually be split between two studios — Studio A and Studio B — each with two XT[2]s, one XF[2] and one IPDirector each.

With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
