Key Features
3Play 440 is a multi-channel instant replay system for small to mid-size live sports productions. It can be used standalone or combined with a TriCaster for instant replay with video switching.

Integrated Mobile Sports Production
Doing the work of multiple systems with its 4-camera ISO recording, 140 hours of HD storage and playback, pristine slow motion, multi-camera replay switching, media publishing, highlights creation, camera color correction and more, 3Play 440’s single 2RU rack mount solution lets moderate and smaller sports productions without the traditional requirement of racks of equipment.

Self-Contained Live Shows
Perform essential end-to-end game production even in minimalist in-house setups, and feed a spectacular fan experience to the board. Even without a dedicated switcher, the smallest crew can use 3Play 440 to switch the game for up to 4 cameras, in both live and replay segments; add internal and external sources to play back clips, effects, overlays and transitions; include titles and scoreboard feeds from across the field or over the network; and provide the highlights to social media networks – all in real time.

Multi-Angle Switching
Keep all the action right in front of you and the audience, with built-in, multi-view monitoring and switching of every live video source and captured content channel. Preview and switch between every angle simultaneously from either the UI or the controller, and add custom animated transitions and 3D warping video effects.

ISO Camera Capture
Multiple angles can all be recorded automatically and made available immediately for rapid-turnaround handoff to postproduction in high-quality QuickTime in your native HD resolution.

Built-In Color Matching
3Play 440’s advanced proc amp toolbox automates color calibration across all sources, and provides not only consistency but also algorithmically calculated precision to make every lighting change or shift in the weather practically invisible to anyone watching on screen.

Automation & Control
One operator can streamline processes, with one-click macros for complicated or frequently performed actions and sequences. More operators – whether new to the crew, or advanced at their specialty – can breakout control of certain tasks to button-push MIDI devices. Trucks and venues with compatible switchers can use Advanced Media Protocol (AMP) to control clip and playlist actions remotely.

Play Review
Game-clock overlay shows the synchronized sources of camera and timer. Simultaneous playback of multiple angles give a visual comparison side-by-side or picture-in-picture.

Show-Stopping Motion Control
3Play 440 uses your existing, standard HD and SD cameras, feeds them into its breakthrough super-resolution algorithm, and adds T-Bar and jog-wheel control of playback from nearly a standstill to double speed, backward and forward.

Intuitive Clip Access
With 3Play 440’s FastClip context-aware text field, you can cut up to 30% of extraneous keystrokes. Whether you’re renaming, searching for, or moving a clip, FastClip uses what you’re typing to automatically determine what to do.

Overlay Visuals
3Play 440 allows you to apply exotic overlays without the multiple creative workstations normally required. Any video, graphic, animation, effect, replay, or camera feed stored in the system – or any live source brought in over the network, like telestration, titles, or motion graphics – can be keyed over in full motion, and positioned, scaled, and cropped to create the highest-impact compositions.

Automatic Replay Recording
When you set your first Mark In or Mark Out point, 3Play 440 automatically triggers the Record button to capture incoming video signals.Multi-Channel Recording
3Play 440 records multiple channels of video at native resolution simultaneously. Capture every angle of live action for instant replay, playback, or archive.Synchronized, Continuous Capture
When you press the Record button, configured sources are continuously captured and stored until you manually deactivate recording. Freely focus on 3Play 440’s other functions without interrupting capture.

Clip Playback
Capture and mark live action as 3Play 440 events, then replay clips from multiple angles. You can also import clips and operate 3Play 440 as a media server.

Delayed Output
Once you begin recording, you can initiate playback whenever you like. Output recorded video seconds, minutes, even hours after recording starts.

Dual Playout Channels
3Play 440 provides two fully independent, simultaneous playout channels for output, each capable of supplying a live feed or playback of recorded content to a downstream display or production system, like having two playback devices in one.

Interpolated Slow Motion
Amplify the intensity of highlights or analyze the action frame-by-frame with smooth, interpolated slow motion. Replay the action at half-speed, quarter-speed, and more with incredible clarity and detail.

List Playback
Choose and compile clips for sequenced playback. Create highlight reels or build blocks of content, then hit play to roll from one clip to the next automatically.

Live Output
Send any incoming video signal directly to one or both output channels to supply a live feed to downstream displays or production systems.
