IP and SDI Production

3Play 3P1 is a team player—no matter what equipment makes up your production infrastructure. From its natural chemistry with NewTek IP Series and TriCaster® TC1 production systems; to its native integration of NDI®, NewTek’s innovative Network Device Interface technology, and connection to the most prolific IP-based workflow in the industry; to its compatibility with conventional gear running baseband 3G-SDI or HD-SDI video with embedded or analog audio—3Play 3P1 has a championship-level connection with any workflow.

LivePanelTM Compatibility

NewTek 3Play 3P1 natively supports control from the browser of any compatible networked device via NewTek LivePanelTM. Available as an optional purchase for 3Play 3P1, LivePanel includes a touchscreen-friendly software control panel and LivePanel Builder for custom user interfaces, with premium customization services also available through NewTek Professional Services.

Intuitive Asset Management

Exercise your clock management skills as you save valuable time logging, organizing, and retrieving content. From tagging events and clips with detailed metadata in a flash using your own custom coding system, to instantly filtering top plays by team, player, type, or period with the intelligent search engine, managing your assets with 3Play 3P1 is fast, efficient, and a fraction of the work from ingest to archive.

Coverage and Capture

Take advantage of unprecedented freedom in planning your coverage, then capture every angle of the action to high-quality, full-resolution QuickTime® files. Supporting input both locally via SDI and over IP from any location on your network via NDI®, plus synchronized, continuous recording of 4 simultaneous video channels, 3Play 3P1 introduces game-changing possibilities for positioning cameras and acquiring content.

Replay and Play Review

Present your audiences with the best view of cool, critical, and controversial plays—in real time, slow motion, or frame-by-frame—with 2 independent output channels deliverable both locally via SDI and over IP to any NDI® destination on your network. With outputs optionally combining for a switcher-style program-preview workflow, the ability to change angles while playback is progress, and support for video layering to include stacking live feeds and replay perspectives, 3Play 3P1 effortlessly accommodates your distinct brand of replay.

Social Media Integration

Take over timelines and feeds without leaving the live environment, sharing real-time highlights and screencaps directly from 3Play 3P1 to your social media accounts.
