Utah Scientific And EVS Offer Native SDI Routing/Control Solution For Live Broadcasters
Utah Scientific, a global provider of equipment to content creators, distributors and broadcasters, today announced a new reseller partnership with EVS, which offers live video technology for broadcast and new media productions. EVS will package Utah Scientific video routers together with its all-new MediaInfra Strada routing solution to empower live broadcast productions operating in a native SDI routing infrastructure.
“EVS’ new MediaInfra Strada solutions offer multiple approaches to routing: pure IP, native SDI, and turnkey solutions for customers working in mixed environments. Our partnership with Utah Scientific will greatly strengthen our native SDI offering for those customers who are not ready to invest in an IP-based operation,” said Peter Schut, senior vice president, media infrastructure, EVS. “As a well-known provider of dependable, worry-free routers with the world’s best warranty, Utah Scientific was an easy choice to supply the routers for this value-added solution.”
While EVS is known for its strong presence in the live sports market, it says the inclusion of Utah Scientific’s routers to this new MediaInfra Strada offering is ideal for any live production environment in which SDI routing is required: news production, broadcast operations, transmission, playout, and master control rooms, as well as corporate video production. The solution packages Utah Scientific’s UTAH-400 Series 2, UHD-12G, and UDS routers with EVS’ Cerebrum control and monitoring system, which features a logical routing control system with dynamic tie-line management, and options such as integrated tally management, scheduling, and many more capabilities to help customers streamline their workflows. With the exception of Italy, EVS will resell this SDI solution to its worldwide markets.
“Our partnership with EVS is a strategic milestone for Utah Scientific and will deliver big advantages to broadcast customers of both companies,” said Brett Benson, vice president of sales, Utah Scientific. “From the customers’ perspective, live broadcasters still active in the SDI world will be able to benefit from a best-of-breed routing and control solution from two best-of-breed companies. And, from a corporate perspective, the collaboration with EVS means Utah Scientific will be able to expand its reach in the live broadcast arena by working with one of the industry’s best-known power players.”
