Evertz Opens a DreamCatcher Training Center


KAISERSLAUTERN, GERMANY — Media and entertainment technology company Evertz has turned on the lights for the first time at its newly equipped DreamCatcher Training Center (DCTC) in Bavaria’s chief metropolitan area, Munich.

As a provider of hardware and software-based live production workflow tools, Evertz says this will assist the company in offering broadcasters and content providers a new resource to assist in the creation of “high quality content at unprecedented speeds.”

“We understand that moving to a new live production platform not only requires technical excellence, but is also based on operators who know the platform inside and out and feel confident to operate it in a very fast and efficient way,” said Sebastian Ruchti, Sales
Engineer at DACH. “Therefore we decided to set up a DreamCatcher ecosystem here in Munich that can host multiple operators, that not only allows operators to come in and familiarize with the system locally, but also allow customers to discover our award-winning
BRAVO Studio workflow remotely from anywhere.”

DreamCatcher is located in Munich’s SpaceNet Building, in the heart of a burgeoning north Schwabing tech center that includes Amazon and Microsoft offices some 25 minutes north of Marienplatz via the U6. “The DCTC has connectivity to perform full remote production
workflow-based demonstrations of Evertz’ XPS RealTime UHD/3G/HD Streaming Platform and BRAVO Studio platforms,” the company says.

XPS is Evertz’ next-generation UHD/3G/HD streaming platform that uses SRT, RIST and Zixi for secure and reliable contribution over IP networks with ultra-low latency. XPS is a software-defined HEVC and H.264 real-time encoding/decoding platform that Evertz believes is ideal for live or cloud-based applications where secure, high quality and low-latency is essential.
