TVU Replay app brings in-game review and on-air replay to more budgets and experience levels
TVU Networks has introduced a multi-camera control sports app that enables officials to instantly review play during games and for producers to include that live video within their coverage.
Called TVU Replay, the app will have two modes – Review and Replay. Review mode enables officials and coaches in game to immediately review any close call from their phone or tablet. Replay provides all production elements necessary to output clips to any device. The app is as simple to operate as any smartphone interface.
“We’re introducing TVU Replay in response to customer feedback,” said Paul Shen, CEO, TVU Networks. “We’ve been speaking with various collegiate conferences and their need for a next-generation review solution. Everything we do is in response to solving customer challenges. WIth our devops culture, we quickly and easily built a solution that’s versatile for a variety of applications. We’ve created a toolset that has revolutionised the way replay is handled in terms of ease of operation and within a fully realised cloud workflow.”
Frame speed in Replay and Review can be controlled via the touchscreen of a phone or tablet or using a video game controller for a laptop. “By replacing purpose-built replay hardware with a video game controller, we’re opening up the door to a new, potential talent base,” added Shen. “This is just another example of innovation through listening. We’ve heard from customers about the challenges they face and the roadblocks to doing what they want, how they want. The old way is just that, the old way. Our cloud solutions are available today.”
TVU Replay is aimed at sports teams, sports leagues, broadcasters and production companies.
