Announcing NewTek 3Play Mini Portable Sports Live Production Suite
April 12, 2015 by Chuck Baker
We are pleased to announce the new 3Play Mini - we’ve taken all the power of our 3Play complete sports live production suite and made it just outrageously portable. The four-input 3Play Mini fits in a backpack with room to spare, and you can hold it in one hand. A broad range of integrated capabilities for multi-camera live sports production with instant replay and smoothly variable slow motion are contained in the new, ultra-compact form factor.
So, don’t let the size fool you: 3Play Mini is powerful enough to drive your entire show. You can use up to four off-the-shelf HDMI cameras to produce dramatic multiple angle slow motion instant replays (all views automatically synchronized), edit highlights, roll stored video packages, create effects and transitions, publish to social media and much, much more. Alternatively, you can also plug into a switcher or video board for yet more inputs and production possibilities. Create network-style sports productions from anywhere!
In the “There’s More!” department: the portability options engineered into 3Play Mini go beyond the device itself: out of the box, operators can control 3Play Mini with almost any touchscreen wireless mobile device. So, just put a tablet in that backpack, and you’re good to go. Yes, you can also use a keyboard (put a flexible roll-up keyboard in the backpack, too), or an optional 3Play control surface (OK, so that’s not going in the backpack, but hey, we’re all about options.)
Summing up: no other live sports solution includes a whole suite of production tools in such a small, unobtrusive, and affordable package.
