EVS Broadcast Equipment, the leader in Professional Digital Video applications for live, near-live and studio TV production, today announced that it has recently signed two major deals:

* the third tranche for the delivery of 12 OB vans in Russia (EUR 4+ million);

* a major deal in its EMEA zone for the delivery of a large Broadcast Center solution dedicated to sport production and playout (EUR 3+ million).

Luc Doneux, Head of EMEA, APAC and Big events, said: "While the third tranche of the larger deal with Panorama was expected, the other studio project is a new example of the strengths of our solutions, really well suited for this kind of complete workflow."

Both contracts should be mainly delivered in the course of 2012.
