IBC TV News has asked EVS to provide their integrated news production system for a fourth year. EVS will install a news solution for HD ingest, storage, editing and playout to get the channel on air during the IBC show, 7-11 September 2012, in Amsterdam.
IBC TV News will produce 20-minute news programmes during the exhibition featuring top stories from the show floor as well as highlights from the IBC Exhibition and Conference. The entire HD production of the daily news programme will be managed EVS systems, from the breakfast show broadcast on the IBC TV News channel, to the morning and midday news flashes live on the their website, mobile content, and video podcasts. For the first time, EVS will be providing IBC TV News with a news spot enabling interviews to be conducted there throughout the show.
Producer of IBC TV News, Sue Robinson said, EVS has provided us with a news solution for the last four years and also helped us move to a full tapeless HD workflow, allowing us to achieve multi-purpose delivery and fast content creation. Our main challenge will be to deliver interesting content at the highest quality standards to an audience of broadcast specialists, and EVS continued support will help make our operations efficient.
The complete workflow provided for IBC TV News will be based on EVS advanced news systems, including XS ingest and playout server for high-speed and high performance live operations, combined with IPDirector content management and Xedio editing suites. In addition, all clips and edits will remain available on the EVS XStore SAN near line storage, allowing editors to browse and edit the media at any time.
During the show, IBC TV ENG crews will use Sony XDCAM SxS to import their XDCAM HD media files via Xedio Dispatcher. The new module offers instant review, rough-cut edit and on-the-fly transcoding capabilities during transfer to EVS production server. Weather forecast, VTR and graphics will be managed with the IPDirector ingest scheduler. The content will be instantly available for edit or playout once ingested or imported on the XS server. All edits including voice-over, graphics inserts and transition effects, will be prepared by one of the three Xedio-CleanEdit stations, the latest generation of EVS NLE systems. For final post-production operations, two additional Apple Final Cut Pro stations will be used, and the media interchange between EVS storage, editing tools and Final Cut Pro will be fully transparent for the editors.
Finally, IBC TV News rundown and playlist on-air actions will be controlled by IPDirector, which will manage all the media configured for playout operations on the XS production server.
Marketing and communications director at EVS, Nicolas Bourdon said, Our news solution uses technology from our live sports production workflow, so is fast, reliable and flexible, delivering a live production facility on the stand.
IBC TV News will be broadcast to more than 10,000 hotel rooms in Amsterdam each morning before being transmitted worldwide. Repeats will show during the day at the RAI exhibition center. IBC TV News will still be produced on site at the IBC stand in the new Workflow Village in Hall 9, with some interviews also taking place on EVS stand in hall 8.
