Newtek shows BMX on big screen

NewTek’s 3Play was used to broadcast the 2011 BMX French National Championship on big screens to more than 10,000 spectators at the event.

The operator used 3Play to replay the actions of the race on big screens to the 10000 visitors attending the championship. The 3Play was integrated in a system with two computer sources for titling and advertising, six videos sources, including four cameras, and an external source coming from another OB Van.

NewTek 3Play 820 is a HD/SD 10-channel slow motion system that supports simultaneous display, recording, instant replay of up to eight video streams, each with up to quad channel audio. Utilizing proprietary NewTek IsoCorder technology, the eight-input, two-out 3Play 820 offers what the company refers to as a revolutionary price-performance value, which retails at a fraction of the price of current four-input, two-out devices on the market.

“3 Play 820 gives sports broadcasters, leagues, teams, schools, an affordable option to deliver instant replay and slow motion for broadcast, webcast, arena scoreboard displays, etc,” says the company in a positioning statement.

“We were really impressed by how easy the 3Play is to integrate and to use for the first time.” said Nicolas Siron, director of, “It is a well-thought and well-made product, the ideal solution for small production company like us. We produce concerts and festivals, but thanks to the 3Play, extending our expertise and capabilities to live sport broadcast is now an option”.
