SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — NewTek recently unveiled 3Play 4800, a multi-camera replay server that redefines price-performance standards in live sports production.
The new system, which offers more real-time capabilities than any other multi-camera replay server, gives sports producers unprecedented access to redundant capture, sophisticated visual effects, live replay switching, high quality slow motion, and social media publishing-all within a single, turnkey system. 3Play 4800 is available immediately at the breakthrough price point of $39,995.
"Replay is no longer optional in sports production. Unfortunately, the high cost and limited functionality of today's popular replay servers makes it a challenge for any sports organization to effectively manage infrastructure costs as technology advances," said Dr. Andrew Cross, Chief Technology Officer at NewTek. "We've set a new standard with 3Play 4800 by putting more real-time capabilities directly in the hands of replay operators, while at the same time, significantly lowering capital costs for any sports organization. With 3Play 4800, producers can now deliver the electrifying highlights that drive greater fan loyalty-and have a direct impact on the revenue and profitability of their business."
3Play 4800 goes significantly beyond traditional live replay and provides out of the box integration with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. This solution allows operators to instantly deliver media into their existing dialog with fans, which no other system allows.
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.
