EVS, the manufacturer famous for its slo-mo technology and the XT2 production server, launched two new products at Broadcast Video Expo this week.

XS is a new four channel video production server designed to increase the speed and efficiency of production of near live and pre-recorded studio shows.

It offers multiple SD and HD codec configurations with native support for IMX, Avid DNxHD and Apple ProRes 422 for example.

The second product, Insio, is a software application created for pre-recorded program production which offers solutions for controlling each phase of production including multiple recording feeds, instant review and clip management.

EVS's chief executive Pierre L'Hoest explained the thinking behind XS: "We wanted to develop a production server that would help studio producers' increase productivity. The solution is based on EVS' instant tapeless technology in live sport and will give studios some of the benefits of this established product."

The system makes recorded media instantly available across the production network for simultaneous preview, rough editing, archiving, playback, or post-production.

Both XS and Insio come under EVS's recently launched Silverline brand, which comprises solutions designed for a near live and pre-recorded studio environment.

Broadcast Video Expo takes place from 17-19 February in London's Earls Court 2
