The 3Play™ 820 interface is simplistic by design. Intuitive by nature. With features that you can configure to suit your needs. Utility, without complexity. Configuration settings that are easy to access during live events. Clips list. Playlist. And a pop-up Dashboard. Woo-hoo.
You’re prepared to catch every angle: Epic showdowns call for complete coverage. The 3Play 820 handles it all with eight simultaneous camera inputs. Each wired for synchronized, continuous recording. Two fully independent playout channels add new pages to your sports production playbook, whether you need to drive a giant video board, put out a feed for live broadcast, or both.
Constant action keeps you ready for anything: 3Play 820 flows right into your rhythm with an intuitive replay workflow that keeps your team in tune with each other, and the game. Big games with a multitude of cameras can challenge you with the most demanding broadcast, but your production team is confident, coordinated, and in command in the middle of clutch time.
You’re equipped for any scenario: Ready-made for your production infrastructure, the 4U rack-mount design fits virtually anywhere in the confines of an arena, or installed in the live production truck. Industry-standard SDI connectivity carries your native HD quality from end to end. And when unpredictable elements come into play, safeguards like a redundant power supply and multi-tiered fail-safe keep the game going right up to the buzzer.
Your next game starts while the current one is finishing: With session management, you’ll keep track of footage from game to game. And the 3Play 820 system’s massive recording capacity—200 hours of 1080i, right out of the gate, with hot-swappable storage making it nearly limitless—lets you fill drive after drive with defining moments to anchor highlight shows and retrospectives for years to come.
You give fans more of what they want to see: Enjoy network-style presentation with smooth, interpolated slow motion. Break down highlights or analyze pivotal moments, frame by frame, with incredible detail.
You don’t have to wait to show the shining moments: No need to leave the system. Build highlight or sponsor blocks at breakneck speed for instant replay on command―during timeouts, or going into a break. Package the best plays, critical mistakes, and monumental moments together, and then add transitions and background sound for a strong finish.
Your production isn’t an island, it’s an ecosystem: By itself, connected to your existing production setup, or teamed up with TriCaster over a local network, 3Play 820 plays well with others. Plug in 3Play to multiply the inputs of your switcher—and the overall excitement, or streamline your entire operation with the NewTek live sports combo and have a complete, integrated live production solution, using a fraction of the space―with unmatched mobility.
Big games. Big playing fields. Big teams. And everywhere you watch, big plays. With so many options available, big broadcasters are faced with the challenge of just how to capture—and keep—the attention of big sports fans. But the size of your budget doesn’t always match the size of the athletes that dominate the arena.
3Play 820 is a heavy-hitting slow motion and instant replay solution designed to handle the most rigorous requirements in all of sports—at a price that sets world records for satisfying strict budget demands.
