Sky New Zealand Relies on EVS for Advanced Live Productions Ensuring Comprehensive Coverage of Recent Rugby World Championship.

Auckland, NZ - 7 November 2011 – Main broadcaster of the recent rugby World championship hosted in New Zealand, SKY Television New Zealand, has implemented EVS’ specialist live production systems to provide the complete live video recording, replay, and content management infrastructure for the coverage of all matches in High Definition (HD).

Aiming to deliver the most exciting viewing experience to millions of worldwide rugby fans,SKY TV New Zealand productions opted for a complete EVS technology-based architecture for all recordings and fast turnaround editing operations.  The live production operations of all matches were covered by four HD mobile units and two flyaway production kits distributed to different venues around the country. Each OB unit was equipped with six to eight XT series servers, depending on the number of games.  Up to 24 cameras and five Super Motion systems were used to cover the top matches. EVS’ live production systems were used by SKY TV production teams at all venues to generate a comprehensive number of replays, including Super Slow Motion and quick highlights of key actions from every match.

SKY TV New Zealand is one of the first broadcasters to deploy the new generation XT3 EVS servers to produce a globally broadcast event. In addition to a significant increase in capacity and media processing bandwidth, the XT3 system under LSM control (Live Slow Motion) allowed SKY TV productions to support two Super Motion HD camera feeds for record and instant replay in the same machine.

Complementing the on-site coverage, SKY TV has built a centralized indexed media server at the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Auckland. Composed of four networked XT2 servers, the indexed media server is used to manage the recording of all rugby matches feeds as well as unilateral feeds. Ingested material is logged using IPlogger, part of EVS’ content management suite IPDirector. The advanced browsing system of IPDirector is also used by production and post-production teams to instantly retrieve specific match actions for summary, highlight and magazine-style programme creation in Final Cut Pro. Using EVS XF2 technology, the system also provides the official archive of all matches of the event.

Contrat record pour EVS

  • La société technologique liégeoise active dans les solutions vidéonumériques pour la télévision a signé un contrat de 10 millions d’euros avec la société russe Panorama pour équiper une douzaine de cars de régie.

Jacques Galloy,directeur financier d'EVS

EVS, la société liégeoise active dans les solutions vidéonumériques pour la télévision s’est vu confier une commande de dix millions d’euros par la société russe Panorama, fournisseur de facilités technologiques pour les grandes chaînes de télévision. Elle va équiper en serveurs et autres infrastructures technologiques une douzaine de cars de régie de capacité différente, pilotant de 10 à 24 caméras. Le contrat prévoit également la formation de quelque 1 500 opérateurs en Russie.

"Il s’agit de la plus grosses commande jamais enregistrées par EVS", se réjouit le CFO Jacques Galloy. Les solutions de la société liégeoise sont déjà présentes au sein des newsroom des deux plus grandes chaînes de télévision russes ainsi qu’au Kremlin. "En vue des grands événements sportifs à venir (Jeux Universitaires de Kazan en 2013, JO d’hiver de Sotchi en 2014 et Coupe du monde de football en 2018), les opérateurs russes sont occupés à renouveler entièrement leurs infrastructures vidéo", précise Jacques Galloy.

Cette commande devrait représenter 5% du chiffre d’affaires d’EVS pour 2011 (plus de 6 millions ont versés en deux tranches en 2011, le solde en 2012) , mais elle ne change pas les objectif du groupe qui table sur un chiffre d’affaires 2011 équivalent au chiffre record enregistrée en 2010, soit plus de 111 millions d’euros.

PANORAMA PICKS EVS SYSTEMS TO EQUIP ITS NEW FLEET OF 12 OB UNITS THROUGH A
ALL-TIME RECORD DEAL EXCEEDING EUR 10 MILLION
Liège, Belgium, October 25, 2011, EVS (Euronext Brussels: EVS.BR, Bloomberg: EVS BB, Reuters: EVSB.BR)
(Pinksheets: EVBEF), the leading manufacturer of live broadcast and media production systems, is announcing the
signature of a multi-million deal with Russian OB facility company Panorama to provide high definition production
servers and associated content production and management solutions.
Panorama, initially Ano Sports Broadcasting is the largest Russian unified facility company, created in December
2009 by Channel One, VGTRK, NTV and RIA News. It has commissioned the integration of several new high
definition mobile production units (Outside Broadcast – “OB” vans) to Sony Professional Europe. The new fleet will
be composed by 12 OB units of different sizes ranging between 10 and 24 cameras, and including the best-ofbreed
technologies from different broadcast and media industry suppliers. The choice of Panorama for EVS
servers and live controllers as a standard solution for their new mobile units results from the extreme reliability
combined with the live oriented architecture of EVS technologies. In addition, EVS was the only system provider to
guarantee such as fast level of technology implementation while guarantying a large acceptance of its solutions by
broadcast specialists and advanced operators. The complete solution comprises an extended range of EVS
products including the new XT3 production and media server, removable storage system XF2 and advanced
production content management system IPDirector. As part of the deal, EVS will also train more than 1,500
operators in Russia, creating a large community of operators in that region of the world.
Last spring, EVS got a purchase intention for equipping 12 OB Vans for an amount exceeding EUR 10 million in 3
tranches. The first two similar orders have been received in May and October 2011 and do exceed EUR 6 million
together. These two tranches will have been delivered in 2011. The third tranche of commitment is expected early
2012 for delivery in 2012.
Hugues Lambert, Russia, Central & Eastern Europe Sales Manager says: “EVS has been active in Russia for more
than 10 years and, together with our local partners, we have successfully implemented large tapeless workflows
such as digital TV Newsrooms, Outside Broadcast solutions and many TV production applications. We are very
grateful of the recognition and the support of Panorama and its founding partners, who are also the main TV
stations in Russia. This confirms the strong development of our company in Russia, which has also been elected
as host country for a few key sporting events in the coming years (eg. Summer Universiades 2013 in Kazan, Winter
Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014 and Football World Cup in 2018).”
