The NewTek 3Play 3P1 IP Replay System with Control Surface is the premier video solution for modern IP sports production. It is the first 3Play system to natively integrate NDI® into the primary input channels, as well as the DSK and output channels, allowing for an end-to-end IP workflow. Offering the most complete set of real-time capabilities for live game coverage, replay, training, and analysis ever integrated into a single turnkey system. From native integration of NDI®, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, for an end-to-end IP video workflow, to 3G-SDI connectivity for hybrid or baseband production at resolutions up to 1080p 60, to built-in NDI® Telestrator Pro for talent-driven replay and telestration across the network, 3Play 3P1 delivers competitive advantages that make it ideal for contemporary sports production environments, while sustaining the familiar, proven workflows that professionals depend on worldwide. But the promise of 3Play 3P1 extends beyond its individual strengths, as it combines with the NewTek IP Series or TriCaster TC1, and the NVG1 NewTek-Vizrt IP Graphics Server to form the most complete, cost-effective, end-to-end IP sports production workflow ever available from a single manufacturer.
