BBC Post Invests in NLE for BBC Sport
BBC Post Production has invested in new non-linear equipment to support its customers in BBC Sport as it moves towards a tapeless workflow in a fast-turnaround environment.

The first production to benefit from the investment will be "Match of the Day," which starts this month. The kit refit includes new editing platforms and upgrading an existing EVS network and server to deliver long-term logistical benefits and potential cost-savings to production.

Two further Avid Adrenaline suites and a fifth Avid Airspeed ingest system will be added, which enables live events to be edited whilst they are still being recorded. The Avid shared storage system is being upgraded to Unity 5, utilising Interplay for media management.

The entire EVS compliment is being upgraded to the latest XT[2] versions to support the delivery of output across new platforms and the installation of an Avid Transfer Manager system will allow easy transfer of media to the EVS network.

The upgraded EVS servers can be further upgraded to HD and the Avid upgrades form part of a managed migration from linear to nonlinear working. There is also the ability to add a variety of logging solutions, including EVS IP Director, which has already been trialled by BBC Sport.
