EVS Introduces its First Live Ultra Motion Replay Solution at IBC2011 

Amsterdam, IBC2011, 11 September 2011 – EVS introduces the first Live Ultra Motion Replay Solution combining its XT3 LSM system and the new I-MOVIX X10 Ultra Motion camera system. The new solution will be exclusively presented at IBC2011.

XT3 Umotion

The world’s first live Ultra Motion Replay Solution relies on the integration between EVS’ XT3 production server and the X10 from I-MOVIX which is a new Ultra Motion system based on the latest generation of the Vision Research high-speed HD camera.

Until now, slow motion action replay from an Ultra Motion camera (capturing more than 150 frames per second) was only possible by generating a video clip from a buffer located in the camera system. In the past, any live action happening during this process would have been lost. Recent developments of the XT series server allow a significant increase in its ingest and playout capacity. It is now possible to capture and record the entire output of the I-MOVIX Ultra Motion camera at frame rates of up to 250 frames per second as well as instantly generate ultra slow motion replays without losing any footage of the live action.

A simple software module (UMotion) is required for the existing XT3 server in LSM mode to allow a continuous loop recording of the high frame rate video stream generated by the X10. The system is up to 10 times slower than real time slow motion replays which are available at any moment during a live production.

Pierre L’Hoest, CEO of EVS says: “Already at the root of the first SuperMotion replay which is based on a 1995 digital video recorder in Atlanta, EVS has always developed innovative solutions aiming to meet the most demanding live production requirements, in terms of reliability and performance. Recent significant improvements that we have brought into our new generation of production server, the XT3, have allowed us to widen the scope of utilization of our LSM tools which are now available on live Ultra Motion feeds.”

He adds: “Once again, EVS marks the history of sports broadcasting with this new solution resulting from a fruitful collaboration with I-MOVIX.  The Belgian Ultra Motion specialist has become a key player in the sports broadcast technology market while contributing to the development of the “high-speed” camera in live events.”

Live demos of the Live Ultra Motion Replay Solution will be presented at I-MOVIX, stand 11 E60 during IBC2011. The new XT3 UMotion software is expected to be released in Summer 2012.

EVS is currently presenting its full range of production servers and associated software applications at the IBC2011 show (Hall 8 stand 8B90).
