NEP Australia places an order for EVS servers

This November will see cricket broadcast to Australian audiences for the first time on Foxtel’s new dedicated UHD channel. As the technical partner for this programming, NEP Australia will deploy more than 20 new live production servers from EVS, the leading provider of live production solutions.

Eighteen XT-VIA and four XS-VIA servers will be delivered to power the live production of the premium UHD-4K matches for the channel that feature every men’s Test match in Australia as well as One Day Internationals, T20 matches and selected Big Bash League games.

These EVS servers will be deployed in four of NEP Australia’s mobile production trucks as part of a major upgrade and add to the 27 XT-VIAs already used in the company’s Andrews Hubs production centres.

“It’s important that we address the market’s demand for higher-resolution content and use the latest technology to provide our customers with industry-leading services,” said Marc Segar, NEP Australia’s Director of Technology. “This deal shows how committed the NEP Group is to providing the best possible UHD-4K facilities. We already have nearly 50 UHD-capable EVS servers in place, so we can confidently say NEP has the largest higher-resolution replay infrastructure in the world.”
