EVS has launched its LSM-VIA system, which is based on its ubiquitous LSM live slow motion control panel.

Handy: EVS says the product suits experienced LSM operators while enabling a new generation

The company said that LSM-VIA was developed in close collaboration with EVS’ community of operators, with native IP connectivity and software-defined technology on-board.

Serge Van Herck, EVS CEO, said: “We’re reinventing the operation, workflows and deployment of live production replays to enable more creativity while optimising operators’ resources and talents. LSM-VIA doesn’t just offer a new level of control; it completely redesigns the operator experience.”

According to Van Herck, the remote has a familiar layout which had been designed for current and future operators, who will benefit from newly designed ergonomics and advanced capabilities, including simple workflow integration, unique operational macros, and semi-automated functionalities. The remote’s programmable buttons, shortcuts and simple tactile control provide faster access to more functionalities, while the integrated touchscreen offers fully contextual menus to give operators what they need, when they need it. Users can also easily organise network records, running order clips and playlists, with direct access at the touch of a button, he noted.

According to Laurent Petit, SVP products & solutions at EVS, by working with the XT-VIA server and relying on EVS’ VIA microservices ecosystem, LSM-VIA interacts seamlessly with all VIA-based products to open up new workflows and provide faster and direct access to all the content on the live production network.

Petit added that by decoupling the operation of the LSM-VIA from the server managing multiple channels, many different flexible deployment models can be supported, including remote and even multi-site simultaneous production. Petit claims that this dynamic assignment of the channels on geo-distributed XT-VIAs to geo-distributed operators offers a more optimised way of managing their time and talents, while allowing them to work from anywhere, at any time.
