E! Networks relies on EVS servers, software for Golden Globes

E! Networks used EVS technology for its live, daylong broadcast along the red carpet at the 63rd annual Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles last month.

Driven by three six-channel XT[2] live/studio production and playout servers in a 4-input/2-output configuration, eight independent cameras roamed the red carpet capturing celebrities' arrivals, interviews, processional and mingling between the stars.

Unique to the Golden Globes’ workflow was the addition of EVS' IP Director suite of video production management software that managed the network of the three XT servers. Two operators, each assigned to log the action of four cameras as the event unfolded, used dedicated, attached IP Director stations on XNet, the company’s high-speed communications network. Once logged, the producer in the replay area was able to search and browse clips or create new clips residing on the networked XT[2]s.

The XT operators or the producer's IP Director then moved these clips into a playlist. Once assembled on the network, one of the three XT operators cued-up and sent the compiled playlist to air. A fourth IP Director station was placed in the production area for others to view clips captured to the same system.

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.
