In-Game Highlights

Don't wait to replay the shining moments. Build highlight reels or sponsor blocks at breakneck speed for on-command instant replay to fill timeouts or lead into a break.

Capture Every Angle

of up to 4 live sources, plus 40 hours of recording capacity. Re-purpose all of your captured footage for additional post-game coverage and review.

For years, the extremely high cost of live sports production tools has made it nearly impossible for smaller organizations to deliver a better viewing experience.

Now, NewTek 3Play 425 – at a newly reduced price, eliminates the barrier of costly live sports production tools by making professional instant replay and slow motion available to everyone who previously thought it was out of their reach.

Local broadcasters, school teams and emerging leagues now have a multi-camera, live sports solution that makes it easy to move up to full-tilt live sports production, in network-quality HD. 3Play 425 helps level the playing field, with a system compact enough to go anywhere.

Producers now have the power to deliver more than replay, with real-time highlights, show-stopping slow motion and game-winning moves that put fans right in the middle of the action.

Creating high-impact sports programs does much more than grow audiences. Producers can build their brands with the look of a major league sports show.
