Complete sports production


3Play is a turnkey sports video production solution that gives you the creative control to attract new fans, bigger audiences, and more sponsors at a cost that puts replay in reach — and complete sports production at your fingertips.

Multi-Angle Capture: Monitor every angle of all live video sources. Switch between live shots, stored clips, and packages, and capture everything for live shows and post-production.

Side-by-Side Playback: Game-clock overlay and picture-in-picture simultaneous playback, make it possible for refs to tackle the tough decisions, while fans relive the drama and analysts provide the deeper story.

Multi-Speed Playback: Replay more dramatically—in real time, hyperspeed, or slo-mo—with razor-sharp clarity using pre-set or manual operation with your standard HD and SD cameras.

Real-Time Overlays: Display, position, scale, and crop any live or pre-produced video, animation, motion graphics, or network input source—even your telestration key drawn right over live programming.

High-End Visuals: Get the highest production value with already-included real-time cloth transitions, 3D video warping, and image transformations, or create custom animated transitions with the built-in Animation Store Creator app.

Highlight Clips: Audio, playback speed, transitions, and music let you transform top plays, turning-point decisions, and epic encounters into highlight reels for fans to relive the game.
