Unified Stadium introduced for live production

Integration with ChyronHego graphics and Trans-Lux LED

EVS is partnering with technology providers to introduce the Unified Stadium offering that was demonstrated at the 2018 NAB Show. Unified Stadium is supposed to give sports teams and venue operators the ability to produce enriched video content and control its delivery to multiple screens on gameday.

Unified Stadium is comprised of multiple integrations between EVS’ live production tools and several technology providers, including ChyronHego and Trans-Lux. Alongside integrations with EVS’ renowned replay and content management solutions such as its XT servers, LSM remote controls and IPDirector PAM, Unified Stadium’s centerpiece is the DYVI switcher, which is used by multiple sports venues across the United States, including at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants MLB team and at Prudential Center for the New Jersey Devils NHL team.

The DYVI switcher is built on IP technology and features a software-defined architecture, so it can be easily customized for any in-venue operation. Unified Stadium sees it integrated with ChyronHego's Click Effects PRIME engine – something done for the first time at Prudential Center. Here, operators can create graphics and virtual signage content using Click Effects and easily recall them with the switcher. Prudential Center then uses DYVI to trigger the delivery of graphics to its massive scoreboard and any other in-arena screens.  

The DYVI/Click Effects’ integration gives users a single-step way to create, manage and deliver creative programming to any number of screens. EVS’ Unified Stadium offering also features the company’s partnership with Trans-Lux. The two companies have worked together to allow seamless control of Trans-Lux products using DYVI. At Prudential Center, the production team uses the switcher to cut together its live program, controlling the show as it’s played out on the venue’s scoreboard, which holds the record of the biggest in-arena, center-hung scoreboard in the world.

Deployment of the Unified Stadium offering is said to create an easy to operate production workflow that brings together pre-produced and live assets and uses replays, graphics as well as statistics.
