Covering Dakar Rally 2017 with the EVO Prodigy Desktop

In October of 2016 Ignition Productions was awarded the contract to cover the 2017 Dakar Rally for Red Bull TV. The project was a daily behind-the-scenes show of the world’s toughest Motorsport event. They had to shoot over 13 days of competition across three countries, and in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, with temperatures ranging from 122°F to near freezing, sometimes in altitudes over 3500m, an extreme feat for even the most adventurous crews.

Texas Christian University Drafts EVO For A New Sports Video Team

June 12, 2017 in User Stories
In this story: Adobe Premiere, Education, Sports

It’s your first day as the head of a brand new video team. You can’t wait to get to work, but when you arrive, you’re immediately greeted by a shelf of external hard drives and a small server partition provided by the university’s IT department. To some, it’d be a little discouraging. To others, it’s an opportunity to start from scratch and build the workflow of their dreams.

This is what Chris Salters found when he came to TCU to run a newly founded video production team inside the University’s athletic marketing department. He was excited to take the department in a fresh cinematic direction, and he met his challenges head on.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Production Company Turns to EVO for High-Speed Post Workflow

April 11, 2017 in User Stories
In this story: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Post Production, Sports

To say Dale Earnhardt, Jr., “races cars” is a bit like suggesting Tom Brady “throws a ball around” or Lebron James “shoots hoops.” Those are accurate statements, of course, but they capture nothing of the drama — their exceptional talent, their showmanship, their triumphs, their heart.

And in Junior’s case, taking harrowing turns at 200 MPH — hour after hour — is just one of his skills. Sure, he “races cars,” but he also voices Disney cartoon characters, authors best-selling books, performs in music videos, owns a bar, and engages in meaningful work in the community. And he owns a full-service video and content production studio — Hammerhead Entertainment.

Creative Liquid is a full-service production facility in Washington D.C. with a focus on bringing clients’ visions to life from concept to final product by extraordinary storytelling.

The award-winning team at Creative Liquid provides a full spectrum of production services from pre-production to post, live streaming, broadcast, and everything in between.

The team at Creative Liquid realized that keeping up with all of the new content meant they would need a backend solution to scale their workflow without sacrificing the efficiency their customers rely on. Their workflow before EVO was a mix of shared hard drives and a Studio Network Solutions Xtarget iSCSI SAN. They had success with this model, but as they grew their operations they needed a larger, more integrated solution, and continuing with SNS was a natural choice.
