IHSE streamlines the IBCTV Live Production Workflow

IHSE KVM extenders support the IBC TV live production studio at IBC 2018

IBC TV is the dedicated news and information service that covers interviews, debates, conference sessions and other key moments of the annual trade show. Live content is produced on-site and distributed in real-time across multiple platforms including IBC’s website, social media platforms and to screens throughout the RAI Exhibition Centre. The production system showcases the most advanced and innovative technologies available today, shaping the future of the broadcast and media industry of tomorrow.

In use: Draco vario KVM extenders

EVS’ XT-VIA servers and XStore central storage system are located in the datacentre on the EVS stand in hall 8 – around 500 meters away from the live TV centre in Hall 13. Production content is exchanged between the studio, control room and the central datacentre over a fiber connection at 10 Gbit/s and 40 Gbit/s through an Arista IP spine and leaf network.

Remote control and management of the bank of EVS servers on the EVS stand is enabled by IHSE Draco KVM extenders. Production staff in the production centre have full control over the servers enabling them to manage and produce the live TV channels.

IHSE KVM technology provides the essential control, management and operation of EVS broadcast tools, delivering instant access and flexibility in all types of production system. We are delighted to be working with EVS and IHSE in the IBC TV centre to help deliver live news and views from industry leaders at the show. It is an ideal demonstration of how IHSE solutions can enhance productivity in the broadcast environment. The successful collaboration between EVS and IHSE delivers greater efficiency and streamlined operation for XS/XS servers and XFile3 users.
