Evertz (N1503) will be demonstrating the latest features of its DreamCatcher Replay System and Production Suite at the 2017 NAB show in Las Vegas. DreamCatcher is a modern IP-Based system that combines the functionality of several traditional live production tools into a single intuitive interface.
This IP-based platform enhances production workflows by leveraging MAGNUM, Evertz’ unified control system and its high bandwidth network architecture, where it can scale to meet the needs of any production workflow, including 8K capture and replay. The software defined data center (SDDC) architecture provides a flexible IP-based design capable of quickly adapting to the constantly shifting requirements of the modern broadcast facility.
Evertz is excited to introduce two new DreamCatcher tools, DC-LIVE-EDIT and DC-MG for NAB 2017. The DC-LIVE-EDIT is an advanced video/audio editing tool that will allow for instant craft editing capabilities with render-free publishing. The DC-MG media gateway is an advanced content management system that unlocks the full potential of a DreamCatcher network by enabling additional functionality including utilizing unused processing capacity to complete jobs at unprecedented speeds and transcoding massive amounts of content in a matter of moments.
