NewTek 3Play Recognized with STAR Award
TV Technology awarded 3Play 4800, a multi-camera replay server from NewTek, a STAR Award at the 2013 NAB Show. NewTek 3Play 4800, which offers more real-time capabilities than any other multi-camera replay server, stood out among other contenders at NAB and caught the attention of the panel of broadcast industry experts that judged for the awards.
“3Play 4800 is a multi-camera replay server that redefines price-performance standards in live sports production,” says Dr. Andrew Cross, Chief Technology Officer at NewTek. “In the past, the cost of delivering HD instant replay was so high, many sports producers were forced to rent equipment. 3Play 4800 puts more real-time capabilities in the hands of replay operators than any other system on the market – and at a breakthrough price point that makes replay system ownership a reality for the first time.”
Unique Toolset of 3Play 4800
Unlike any other replay server on the market, 3Play 4800 offers more real-time capabilities in a single turnkey system, placing an unprecedented toolset at the fingertips of every replay operator. Top features of the system include:
• Redundant Capture — Redundant capture of up to 4 live video sources doubles up ISO recordings and protects all media assets. Users can also choose to simultaneously record all 8 inputs as separate camera feeds to add more angles as needed.
• High-end Visuals — Live animated, 3D-warped visual transition effects for switching and in-program editing, with custom animation creator and import of your own branded graphic elements.
• Live Replay Switching — Monitor all angles during replay, and transition between them video-switcher style—providing a completely finished replay segment within moments, animated transitions and all, to output to switcher, feed the video board, or upload to the Web.
• High Quality Slow Motion — Get clear, crisp slow motion playback with both standard HD or SD cameras, achieved with a super-resolution algorithm for sharper slow motion and dramatic stills alike.
• Social Media Publishing — Easily distribute content to multiple social media sites in one pass—even during live production, for a unified, immediate brand presence.
3Play 4800 is available immediately for a retail price of $39,995 USD. International pricing may vary.
