IP-based sports production unleashed with NewTek 3Play 3P1
NewTek has introduced the NewTek 3Play 3P1, a replay solution with native IP video processing. 3Play 3P1 offers both NDI and 3G SDI input, cross conversion, and output. An intuitive dual-channel ‘first replay’ telestration solution allows talent to draw over live NDI video, or optionally reverse-keyed on the field-of-play on any PC, tablet, or touchscreen with a single network cable.
Via NDI, NewTek’s innovative video over IP technology, 3Play 3P1 automatically translates connected SDI sources to NDI, enabling local inputs to be shared simultaneously across the network with compatible systems and devices. Built-in dual-channel ‘first replay’ telestration empowers on-air talent with transport controls to start, stop, and scrub video in either direction. Users also benefit from the presence of familiar workflow paradigms for sports production and replay, recognizable from not only current and previous 3Play systems, but established solutions from other manufacturers as well.
“3Play 3P1 gives the producer more power on game day than any other turnkey sports production system,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek. “It doesn’t matter whether you are producing on a traditional infrastructure or moving to an IP workflow, our goal is to provide all of the tools needed to give fans the best possible viewing experience, whether they are on the couch, on their phone or sitting in the stands.”
3Play 3P1’s tight integration with NewTek IP Series, TriCaster TC1, and NVG1 Graphics Server create an unparalleled IP production powerhouse delivering a full IP workflow that is the most cost-effective and complete sports production solution in the world. 3Play 3P1 natively supports custom user-interfaces to be built from almost any browser on any networked device via NewTek LivePanel, available as an option. Multi-channel recording, internal transitions, social media publishing, and more make 3Play 3P1 the ideal replay system for almost any application.
