LIÈGE, Belgium—The German production services provider Studio Berlin has announced it is upgrading its fleet of OB (Outside Broadcast) trucks and production studios with EVS’ LiveCeption live production, replay and highlights solution. 

The deployed setup will be used to deliver high-end live content for several major sporting events including the Bundesliga, ISTAF, and other international football matches, as well as for several large studio entertainment shows. 

“Thanks to EVS’ LiveCeption solution, we will be able to react more flexibly to all customer requirements and introduce new innovative workflows for our wide range of productions, now and for any time in the future,” said Nick Zimmermann, CEO at Studio Berlin.

Built on EVS’ next-generation XT-VIA live production servers, LiveCeption is designed to support all new formats and protocols from HD to 8K, SDR to HDR, and SDI to IP in a single versatile solution. It is powered by EVS’ new VIA technology platform to deliver evolutive services and capabilities for greater content access and future LSM operations.

“As a technical service provider serving a wide range of formats, from major sporting events to current affairs and large entertainment shows, flexibility was a top priority for us,” added Mathias Alexandru, CTO at Studio Berlin. “By deploying EVS’ LiveCeption solution, there will be no limits for us in slow-motion, recording and streaming for all our current and upcoming projects. And since most freelance operators on the market are familiar with EVS’ replay systems, the solution will ensure we never fall short of industry top talent.”
