Gearhouse Upgrades Entire EVS Fleet

News Image
In the largest upgrade of its kind Gearhouse Broadcast is upgrading its entire fleet of 115 EVS machines across its worldwide locations, making them one of the single largest users of the latest in EVS equipment and workflows in the world.

The upgrade includes migrating all of Gearhouse's EVS kit to the latest 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and means all of its 8-channel XT3 production servers will have onboard low res proxy recording. All EVS equipment will also have the latest XFile3 software enabling them to manually or automatically archive content from EVS servers to transportable hard drives, and means they can restore content from hard drives to EVS servers. XFile3 also presents a simpler way of handling file formats and codecs thanks to its built-in transcoding possibilities and allows monitoring for all transfers through one single interface.
Gearhouse is also investing in the first 4K licenced XT3 and all of its OB trucks will have C-Cast, the platform that enables users to maximise the value of their media by connecting live content with production teams, accredited teams and final viewers for second screen applications. C-Cast also seamlessly connects on-site TV production infrastructure to a cloud-based platform to enable content owners to either aggregate content, enrich it or instantly deliver it to any platform.
The upgrade also brings additional tools to Gearhouse's EVS equipment that includes the C-Cast Xplore live content web-browsing application which improves live, near-live and post-production collaboration and efficiency across multiple, integrated workflows.
Also included in the upgrade is EVS' multi-review system and Epsio FX, providing immediate access to sophisticated live effects while saving post-production costs and enables the addition of artistic replay effects and highlights enhancements for viewers by inputting simple parameters.
Gearhouse Australia sales and marketing director Manny Papas said: "This EVS upgrade puts Gearhouse Broadcast well ahead of the curve. We are aligning all 115 EVS machines in our fleet to the very latest EVS workflows making us one of the biggest EVS providers in the world and giving our clients access to the very best production tools available."
The EVS upgrade is unparalleled and clearly sets Gearhouse Broadcast well apart from other broadcast facility providers in terms of production, efficiency and workflows.
Executive vice president, EVS Sports Division Luc Doneux said: "This unique upgrade of EVS equipment ensures Gearhouse Broadcast's customers will have the most powerful production and editorial tools for delivering content in a faster, more efficient, more polished and streamlined manner. These tools are particularly relevant in the world of live sports, events and entertainment. It also means Gearhouse will be one of the most seamless OB companies in the world with the latest upgrades and workflows."
