NewTek just announced availability of the new 3Play 4800. This is their newest instant replay and more machine. The user interface has been completely revamped with the addition of multi-angle previews, the full TriCaster transition engine, a quick tagging function and a ton of other things. I've only seen a brief demo at the dealer meeting but I think 3Play users both current and future are gonna like it. Oh, and there will be upgrades available from other 3Play models.
Features At A Glance:
• Redundant Capture
For intense action, redundant capture of up to 4 live video sources doubles up ISO recordings and protects all your assets. Need more angles? Standard mode lets you record up to 8 live video sources, simultaneously.
• High-end Visuals
Live animated, 3D-warped visual transition effects for switching and in-program editing, with custom animation creator and import of your own branded graphic elements.
• Live Replay Switching
Monitor all angles during replay, and transition between them video-switcher style—providing a completely finished replay segment within moments, animated transitions and all, to output to switcher, feed the video board, or upload to the Web.
• Interpolated Slow Motion
Get clear, crisp slow motion playback with standard HD or SD cameras (or both), achieved with a high-quality, super-resolution algorithm for sharper slow motion and dramatic stills alike.
• Social Media Publishing Easily distribute content to multiple social media sites in one pass—even during live production, for a unified, immediate brand presence
