NewTek Inc., manufacturer of video and 3D animation products, is demonstrating 3PLAY, its multi-channel, high-definition/standard-definition (HD/SD) instant replay system at NAB 2009. NewTek 3PLAY supports the simultaneous display, recording, and instant replay of up to three video streams and four digital or analog audio streams per input. The native HD device supports NTSC and PAL formats.
NewTek 3PLAY is designed to be affordable and enable a broader base of users--including sports broadcasters, teams, leagues, schools, organizations, and live remote producers--to take advantage of multi-channel, HD/SD slow-motion replay. 3PLAY delivers synchronized, continuous recording and display of up to three video streams.
The system connects to any switcher and supports the output of either a single stream or all three streams to the switcher for complete flexibility in live production. Replays are organized in separate lists with color coding to distinguish teams, players, game periods, event types, and highlights. 3PLAY supports 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios.
3PLAY is a native HD device that supports NTSC SD and is available in North America at $21,995. 3PLAY is available in a multi-standard version internationally at $24,995. Educational pricing is also available.
