Convergent Design Launches Replay Server Supporting 240fps Super Slo Mo
Convergent Design has announced the launch of Revix, an integrated replay server and controller, targeted for the mass adoption of instant replay in sports. The all-in-one Revix uniquely supports 240fps super slo-mo from budget-friendly Sony and Panasonic cameras, greatly expanding the use of slo-mo at all levels.
Increasing game attendance and viewership is a primary driver of all sports programs. Instant replay, especially super slo-mo, clearly adds to excitement and fan engagement. But product cost, versatility, and lack of portability have kept this exciting tool out of the reach of many programs and colleges.
Enter Revix, a low-power, purpose-built, mobile sports production tool. Perfect for game-day replays/switching, the versatile Revix, plays equally well off the field at press conference, award ceremonies, and recruiting trips. Bring high-quality video sports production to pre- and post-game events, while expanding coverage to second-tier sports programs.
Instead of a Windows-based PC with add-in cards, Revix is a purpose-built, all-in-one product, immune from virus attacks. The all solid-state design, housed in a rugged milled aluminum case, breaks the mold of traditional replay severs. Instead of 60-80 lbs, Revix weights in at 5 lbs. Instead of 300-400 watts of power, Revix draws 25 watts. Instead of a 4RU rack-mount server and separate controller, the all-in-one Revix easily fits on your lap.
Now you can engage your fans into your sports marketing program by creating jaw-dropping super slo-mo clips that get reposted over and over again on social media. Drop the edit-ready SSD into your favorite NLE to easily create highlight reels and promo videos. Use Revix as your content creation tool to significantly upgrade your sports marketing with branded video clips and stills.
Revix, the 4-channel in/2-channel out, SDI-based replay-server/controller will bring high-quality super slo-mo replay to a significantly larger audience, engaging fans while upgrading and expanding the marketing and visibility of your sports department. Higher fan engagement, increased attendance, greater buzz, improved revenues.
Revix: $9,950 (MSRP); $2495 (Single-channel Super Slo-Mo). Available Q4 2017.
