EVS Broadcast has expanded its presence in sports mega-events with the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan. Seoul Broadcasting System, South Korea's largest commercial radio and television broadcaster and an EVS client since 1997, already operates a fleet of four EVS LSM live slow-motion systems. For the opening ceremonies and the first match (Senegal versus France, in Seoul) SBS will use the high-definition HD LSM-XT, featuring integrated downconverters for convenient monitoring or HD/SD simulcasting.
EVS is also helping Univision World Cup coverage with a tape-free tape delay for its 8.5 million U.S. households. An EVS MPEG-2/DVB server is recording every match for replay, using a dozen onboard 180 GB disks, plus editing tools for trimming the segments and assembling highlights packages.
