Telestream, provider of automated media encoding and delivery solutions, and EVS Broadcast Equipment, the provider of production server solutions, have announced Telestream FlipFactory transcoding support for the EVS MXF format, XT Server and XFile platform. The product integration provides seamless media and metadata file exchange between the XT Server and a greater number of professional systems, including Avid and other nonlinear edit systems, storage area networks, archives and other media servers. It also extends FlipFactory universal transcoding support to include the EVS JPEG format used for sports broadcast.
The integration with EVS adds support for the EVS MXF format for XT series servers, as well as the wide range of video formats supported by the EVS media servers, including MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, DVC Pro, Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM, and more.
The integration improves workflow in terms of continuity between EVS and Avid systems. Media is recorded into the EVS XT server. Then, FlipFactory automatically provides transparent import and export of Avid-compatible media and metadata files with the EVS XT server. When media is ready to air, FlipFactory can also be used to deliver finished material back to EVS servers for play out.
