EVS and Avid have collaborated to support fast-turnaround live production workflows for users of their systems.

Specifically, EVS has developed a connector called IPLink for Avid MediaCentral UX users that provides “rapid access” to media stored on EVS servers.

It means users don’t have to leave the Avid interface to search for shots and import them into varied Interplay and Media Composer projects.

“EVS believes in open and connected platforms, and this new alliance perfectly meets our users’ needs,” said Benoit Quirynen, SVP Market & Product, EVS. “With IPLink, users have full visibility and direct management of EVS assets - complete with metadata - from within a single, unified production environment.

“The solution allows producers and editors to more quickly and reliably search, find and utilize the best shots – for faster collaboration between live and post-production functions.”

IPLink for Avid MediaCentral | UX is planned for release in June.
