Products and Solutions

The solution has been deployed within United Studio’s flagship van, the ‘OB van 1’ unit, to serve the live production of the new Israeli Premier League season, which began in September. The use of LiveCeption Pure will be extended to the other live sports and entertainment productions including the popular obstacle course challenge, Ninja Israel, and later installed within its large-scale studio facilities located just outside Tel Aviv.

The solution is comprised of two EVS XT-GO replay servers with one XFile3 connected archive and transcoding system to simplify multi-destination file transfer and archive processes during a live production. The XT-GO servers offer the essential functionalities of EVS’ higher-range XT servers, including uninterrupted live feed recording, slow and super motion replays, as well as clipping and playlist control. It also comes with flexible configurations and integrates all new formats from HD/ FHD to UHD-4K, SDR to HDR as well as SDI/IP connectivity. Striking the right balance between high-quality and reliable live programming, and lower infrastructure costs, the solution is ideal for the live coverage of Israeli sporting competitions.

With this investment, United Studios’ OB van 1 becomes the first mobile TV production unit in the region to offer EVS technology onboard, reinforcing the company’s competitive edge on the market. Moreover, this Draco deal has also helped further expand EVS’ regional footprint, allowing more productions to take advantage of state-of-the-art technology and providing audiences with high-quality live programming.
