NewTek 3Play® 3P2 Delivers The Best Plays, Played Better: Replay in a Low-Cost, High-Quality 4K Resolution
Posted in: Product News

SAN ANTONIO, TX–April 20, 2021— NewTek, the leader in IP-based video technology and a Vizrt Group company, today announced the NewTek 3Play® 3P2 video replay and telestration system, which provides unrivaled instant replays for sports productions. With unrivaled connectivity and efficiency, 3Play 3P2 ensures that broadcasters and venue operators never miss an angle or an unforgettable sporting moment.

Zoom & Tracking – Areas of Interest

Operators can use the built-in playback zoom and tracking feature to select multiple points of interest and zoom in and out to capture an important play. The key-frameable feature allows you to scrub clips and pinpoint specific timecodes of key plays.

“Zoom and tracking is about getting those ‘areas of interest,' like a toe touching out of bounds, by zooming and scanning,” Spicek continued. It is keyframe driven, which gives you even more precision during fast action plays. This can be very useful with 4k60p recordings. Breaking it down granularly with keyframes will result in better results and replay.”

The software-driven, network-based replay system's flexibility is unrivaled. This user-friendly and feature-rich 10 channel replay solution has 8 external inputs and 2 outputs. With four convenient SDI connectors built directly into the chassis, inputs can be any combination of NDI sources. The outputs can be used independently or as part of a preview/program workflow that includes live animated, 3D-warped visual transitions delivered to SDI and NDI destinations.

Playlist Sharing

NewTek Operators benefit from sharable playlists, which enable NewTek TriCaster® live production systems to collaborate. Operators of the NewTek 3P2 and TriCaster can sync 3Play playlists over the network using NDI to create a unique collaborative experience for increased speed and flexibility in sports production workflows.

Spicek continued, "We made the relationship between the 3P2 operator and the TriCaster operator feel seamless, as if they were working on the same system." “This is where the collaboration of two distinct operators comes into play. It makes getting the best clips out to broadcast much easier.”

Free Training for 3Play 3P2

3Play 3P2 purchasers and resellers are eligible for a free NewTek University 3Play course. The free 3Play training offer with the purchase of a 3Play 3P2 is valid until September 30th, 2021.
