EVS Broadcast Equipment was founded in February 1994 by Pierre L’Hoest and Laurent Minguet in Liège, Belgium. EVS’ early years were marked by the pioneering work of the founding team in tapeless television technology and the launch of the iconic Live Slow-Motion (LSM) system, which rapidly became the standard replay technology for all broadcast sporting events across the globe.

Over the years, the company has maintained its industry-leading position, building on its solid and reliable technological know-how and widening its product portfolio along the way. EVS now offers a full set of solutions that spans the entire production life cycle and meets the need for a more flexible approach to video production.
