Studio Berlin has upgraded its OB and studio facilities with EVS’ flexible LiveCeption live production, replay and highlights system. The deployed setup will be used for major sports events, including the Bundesliga and international football, as well as for large studio entertainment shows.

LiveCeption means “we will be able to react more flexibly to all customer requirements and introduce new innovative workflows for our wide range of productions,” said Nick Zimmermann, Studio Berlin CEO.

“This partnership with EVS gives us assurance we will be supported by one of the most modern server systems available on the market with access to best-in-class expert services at all times,” he added.

Built on EVS’ next-generation XT-VIA live production servers, LiveCeption can support all new formats from HD to 8K, SDR to HDR, and SDI to IP in a single versatile system.

“As a technical service provider serving a wide range of formats, from major sporting events to current affairs and large entertainment shows, flexibility was a top priority for us,” said Mathias Alexandru, CTO, Studio Berlin. LiveCeption means “there will be no limits for us in slow-motion, recording and streaming for all our current and upcoming projects”.

Jamie Gordon Mitchell, SVP EMEA at EVS, added: Studio Berlin will be able to access EVS’s “top performing technology based on the VIA platform” for live replay that should ensure “highly reliable, efficient, and flexible workflows”.

The deal is the result of a “longstanding partnership we have” with Studio Berlin, which “has been more than 20 years as a customer”, said Serge Van Herck, CEO, EVS. The new technology will be relevant “for at least the next five years”, he promised.
