What we did

Working with Arena we provided an Avid Media composer with Interplay solution for real time editing. An EVS XTAccess and IP Director solution was used to take the directors cut and allow access for the editor to all camera feeds and footage, enabling them to cut 4 parts of the show and send them back to the EVS ready for transmission.

Once cut and sent we also enabled access for Discovery worldwide to the final show in DNX185X.
