IBC 2015: EVS and Cisco will demo new IP-based live remote production workflows at IBC.

Using its new XiP gateway enabling in/out IP links to its live video server, EVS will show multi-feed live remote production – via SMPTE 2022 uncompressed video – over an IP network using Cisco’s standard IP switches and software defined networking.

The demo intends to show how SDN can provide low-latency high-quality video flow between remote sites and how the configuration could ensure the necessary bandwidth for production-critical video flows while allocating remaining bandwidth to other such as file transfers.

The IP demo will also show Dyvi, EVS’ new IT-based distributed live production platform, incorporating multiple workflows over the same network infrastructure, using industry-standard hardware and optimised software.

“Using IP and SDN programmable networking with video frame accurate Ethernet switching, we can deliver benefits including entirely new scale, resilience, and economies for more efficient and flexible workflows,” said Cisco VP of market development, Paul Bosco. 

EVS chief technology officer Benoit Février (pictured) added: “Standards-based innovations like these will make end-to-end IP workflows a reality.

“Open, interoperable IP workflows enable us to provide content to consumers how and when they want it, quickly and efficiently, which will only grow more important over time.”
