NAB finds Evertz highlighting newest Dreamcatcher features
Introduced in 2012, the Dreamcatcher slow-motion replay system from Evertz has already been used in a number of large sporting events including professional football championships, professional golf, auto racing and baseball.
Dreamcatcher offers a Mosaic feature that has garnered a lot of attention as an exciting new advancement in replay workflow. Dreamcatcher’s Mosaic capability allows for multiple angles to be synchronised and played out at a single button press. The Mosaic feature offers the production team the ability to show the captured event from new perspectives. Dreamcatcher has also been used to take advantage of 4K UltraHD cameras, providing broadcasters with the ability to ‘zoom’ into the 4K UltraHD raster to provide a unique replay experience.
Based on Evertz’ VUE, Dreamcatcher is the first to utilise multi-touch interfaces to simplify the way operators prepare instant replays and highlights packages. Dreamcatcher’s interface allows operators easy access to various controls (such as router control) while providing an integrated multi-viewer system. The customisable and intuitive interface allows production teams to create storylines faster than ever before.
To complete the solution, Dreamcatcher seamlessly integrates with Evertz’ MAGNUM (unified facility control) and Mediator (content management system) to allow for an optimized workflow from live production of an event to its broadcast across multiple platforms.
