NAB 2024: Hawk-Eye to launch complete broadcast ecosystem with HawkREPLAY and HawkNEST

Hawk-Eye’s broadcast ecosystem will be launching globally at this year’s NAB Show.

HawkREPLAY is a remote production and instant replay broadcast solution built on Hawk-Eye’s Synchronised Multi-Angle Replay Technology (SMART) systems. Continually building on its robust technology, HawkREPLAY is focused on reimaging broadcasting production workflows and outputs.

With the addition of HawkNEST and ConfigureREPLAY the production workflow is complete and Hawk-Eye now offers a full end-end broadcasting solution.

HawkNEST is the Hawk-Eye broadcast systems asset management server. This system can be added to any existing or future HawkREPLAY Infrastructure and be used to provide media management staff with a dedicated workstation able to access and distribute HawkREPLAY created clips from any networked HawkREPLAY server. Pre-production video files from networked third-party storage, and/or direct networked delivery of edited videos from NLE can also export to local HawkNEST server storage.

HawkNEST is said to provide production teams with an easy to use scheduler for distributing long-form produced pieces. This scheduler can be used to designate directed transmission delivery for affiliates, or for scheduled playback of video to external sources.

It also allows for quick access to all HawkREPLAY created clips from a single UI accessible database. HawkNEST enables the user to quickly and seamlessly distribute external packages to all Hawk-Eye Systems through directed import or scan folder conventions

HawkNEST gives the user the ability to easily create long-form growing records of all independent video sources within the Hawk-Eye ecosystem. These growing records can be exported locally or to a network location for direct access by the production’s editing team.

As a Sony business, Hawk-Eye Innovations will use NAB to demonstrate integrations with the HDC-5500/HDCU-5000 4x UHD, NXL-ME80, M2L-X and Sony Ci from the Networked Live stand.

A host of new features will be on show including 23.98/24 FPS native support – making it the only tier one broadcast replay system on the market to natively support cinematography frame rates.
