NewTek 3-Play Overview
The NewTek 3Play 3P1 is a replay solution with NDI input/output connectivity, and internal processing for end-to-end IP workflows, along with SDI input/output connectivity for hybrid environments. It supports dual-channel, first replay telestration with transport control, 1080p60 operation, LivePanel control, and more. With the included NDI Telestrator Pro technology, you can annotate on screen and roll immediate replays over the network from any compatible networked PC or touchscreen device.
With two configurable multiviewers, selectable workspace layouts, customizable viewports, multi-angle replay preview windows, visual indicators, language localization, and more, you can easily personalize the 3Play 3P1 environment to your preference. 3Play 3P1 comes with a professional hardware control panel for ease of use.
Exercise your clock management skills as you save time logging, organizing, and retrieving content. Manage your assets with 3Play 3P1 by tagging events and clips with detailed metadata in a flash using your own custom coding system and instantly filtering top plays by team, player, type, or period with the search engine. Plan your coverage and then capture every angle of the action to high-quality, full-resolution QuickTime files. 3Play 3P1 supports inputs both locally via SDI and over IP from any location on your network via NDI, plus synchronized, continuous recording of four simultaneous video channels.
Present your audiences with the best view of events—in real time, slow motion, or frame-by-frame—with two independent output channels deliverable both locally via SDI and over IP to any NDI destination on your network. The 3Play 3P1 can combine outputs for a switcher-style program-preview workflow, change angles while playback is in progress, and supports video layering to include stacking live feeds and replay perspectives.
You can use the built-in video server to cue, assemble, package, and deliver content in a variety of ways. With intuitive player controls, editing tools, selectable transitions, playlist effects, customizable settings, and presets, you have everything you need to go to work on game footage for instant replay, and turn out auto-advancing highlights, live-edited cut-ups, stacked sponsor blocks, and more.
The 3Play 3P1 features a comprehensive macro automation system that allows you to record, store, edit, and automate your favorite settings and custom command sequences. With the flexibility to run macros from any combination of compatible control interfaces and support for cross-platform automation, you can outfit your workflow to available equipment and personnel.
Enhance your presentation with a collection of tools designed for network-style sports production right out of the box. 3Play 3P1 includes everything, from downstream keying to apply titles, graphics, stats, sponsor logos, and more; to custom animated transitions, motion graphics, and visual effects that up your production value; to manual and automatic color correction settings for real-time adjustments to variable lighting conditions.
NewTek 3Play 3P1 natively supports control from the browser of any compatible networked device via NewTek LivePanel. The optional LivePanel includes a touchscreen-friendly software control panel and LivePanel Builder for custom user interfaces, with customization services also available through NewTek ProServ.
