EVS XT is First Production Server to Offer Native Support for Apple ProRes 422 Codec
"By integrating the new Apple ProRes 422 codec, EVS takes another step forward to enlarge broadcasters' production and post production perspectives," said Pierre L'Hoest, EVS Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud to give Final Cut Pro users what they've been asking for: the ability to access media recorded on our XT production servers instantly without requiring any transcoding. Now any HD XT server can be easily updated to integrate this new standard, allowing our customers to benefit immediately from this new capability."
"Final Cut Studio is becoming the video production suite of choice for broadcast and post-production professionals around the world," said Rob Schoeben, Apple's vice president of Applications Product Marketing. "Native support for Apple ProRes 422 in the XT means that the incredibly popular tool set of Final Cut Studio is now available to editors during sports and live event production."
The XT, combined with its related software applications such as IP Director and MulticamLSM, offers the flexibility to handle both SD and HD formats and boasts an "always-on" permanent loop recording capability. Every second of every event can be logged, and operators can attach searchable keywords and other metadata to the assets for comprehensive file management. The open architecture of the XT and its native support of the Apple ProRes 422 make it the most reliable and efficient system for the transfer and streaming of ingested media with associated metadata to Final Cut Pro craft editors in both SD and HD.
