Xfile3 is the fastest way to move and exchange your EVS files during production.  Backup, stream and restore your content -- in any format and from multiple destinations - and get first-generation images back to the studio, with no impact on the SDTI network performance.

From a single, connected workstation, XFile3 allows users to find and restore archived content –transcoding it if necessary – and automatically backs up media to disk with on-the- fly creation of transcoded editions throughout the production. Operators can monitor and manage all file transfers from one easy interface, giving them complete control and visibility of the content across its lifecycle.

Connected Live Archive

Today’s live archives for events are connected, and WAN circuits are readily available.  XFile3 becomes an connected live archive when combined with EVS C-Next solution and the C-Next service in the cloud.  Make your sharing of content easier by direct workflows in XFile3 connected to more content and more people.

Simple Intuitive UI

Performing archive and restore of content for live events should not be difficult, and the user interface to execute should be simple. XFile3 was born out of user’s requests and the need to command a high volume of live archive during the top tier events around the world.

Archive during Live Production

No need to wait to the end of the live production to archive content from your live production server, XFile3 lets you transfer during live game operations to be completed moments after the live event.  Save time, and secure your content so you can make a fast departure from the OB Production Truck.
