With this first VIO 4K order, Evolve Media Group reinforces its fleet of high-end equipment to help its customers produce stunning creative shows. Over the last two years, Evolve Media Group has made significant investment in Analog Way's LiveCore™ series of presentation mixers including the NeXtage 16, SmartMatriX Ultra, Ascender 16, Ascender 48 and the Vertige™ console. Evolve Media Group is also an Analog Way certified partner for training, offering classes on the LiveCore™ series. So far, Evolve Media's Academy has trained over 75 LiveCore™ certified operators.

Tyler Mayne, President at Evolve Media Group explains: "As the AV industry migrates to 4K over the next few years it will be important for us to carry a product in our rental inventory that helps our customers bridge the gap between 2K and 4K workflows. With its rugged, future proof design, the Analog Way VIO 4K will be our go-to conversion tool when our customers demand a new level of image processing horsepower".
