Evertz Winnersh, Reading, UK Office

Evertz UK has recently invested +£1M in the new broadcast IP demonstration suites at its Winnersh, Reading, UK headquarters. These new facilities are designed to help clients experience and understand IP systems and remove a common myth in the market about IP, proving that it not just works but works very well and presents new opportunities for broadcast production and delivery.

Evertz identified the potential for broadcast video over IP some ten years ago and has subsequently spent 6 years and more than $50M in development to lead the charge to IP. To date customer adoption is high with over 100 systems installed worldwide in mobile and fixed installations. The company’s expertise and accumulated experience is unprecedented, and this knowledge helps Evertz customers find success with their projects and avoid common pitfalls of adopting new technology.

Successful IP, time after time

Broadcast IP video is complicated regardless of whether it is for high definition or ultra high definition video and layer onto this live and pre-recorded production workflows, media management as well as broadcast infrastructures and you have strong potential for things to go wrong. Evertz has broken down every part of the new equation to manageable elements and working in partnership with its customers has applied its technologies to deliver successful solutions time after time to the world’s most forward thinking broadcasters.

New demonstration facilities

The demonstration facilities encompass both legacy video formats along with 10G and 25G IP transport, all via switch fabrics and control systems that allow broadcasters to seamlessly transition from hybrid to full IP systems. Evertz’s SDVN, software defined video networks alleviate bandwidth management issues with capacity of up to 46Tb/s, providing faster switch times and delivering the most reliable and affordable IP systems. Key to this are products like the EXE IP switch, 570 series IP gateways, evEDGE software defined video/audio ‘glue’, DreamCatcher storage systems, Mediator media asset management together with MAGNUM management and control system, VLPro status monitoring and VUE, a software defined control cockpit for daily control operations. It is these elements that when combined together, perform to deliver the most powerful, seamless IP systems.
