Bergen, Norway, 10 April 2024 Vizrt, the leader in real-time graphics and live production solutions for content creators, announces today a new level of its technical partnership with EVS, a global leader in live video production solutions.  

The combination of Vizrt’s flagship studio automation solution, Viz Mosart, and EVS XT and XS-series servers, has for many years provided broadcasters with a high-level of control and flexibility for 24/7 seamless operation playout.  

This support now extends to the XS-NEO, EVS’s software defined server. The XS-NEO builds upon the legacy of EVS speed and reliability, while delivering the codec flexibility that modern news operations demand.  

This new collaboration integrates Vizrt’s expertise in automated production tools with EVS’s renowned capabilities in live broadcast technology, aiming to deliver an out of the box solution for both ingest and automation-based playout.  

The new XS-NEO server from EVS empowers broadcasters to natively play multiple formats, including XDCam, and supports play from local high-performance RAID disks or directly from a facility’s central storage, streamlining workflows for maximum efficiency. 

“Viz Mosart never stops evolving and remains at the cutting edge of automated multi-format live production. With the integration of XS-NEO, we’re improving our expertise in the software-defined newsroom, with unrivalled flexibility for our customers’ workflows,” says Andy Newton, Senior Product Manager at Vizrt. 

“With the replacement of legacy “End of Life” Ingest and Playout systems remaining a key challenge for newsrooms today, having our software defined XS-NEO fully validated for Viz Mosart control brings smooth multi-format playout – including support for native XDCam – directly to the News operation,” says Christophe Wittevrongel, Senior Solutions Manager at EVS.  

“Our goal is to deliver a fully supported, hyper-reliable ingest and playout solution that directly addresses one of the most important facets of Newsroom operation with no disruption to the present operation.” 

As a certified solution partner of EVS, Vizrt remains dedicated to continuous collaboration with the live video production specialist, guaranteeing that their integrated solutions consistently adapt with the ever-changing requirements of the broadcast industry.
