  • 1Description
Deliver a top-level fan experience from any location with NewTek's ultra-portable 3Play Mini, a full-featured live production suite designed small and lightweight enough to be carried in a backpack. Connect up to four HDMI cameras and produce instant replays, super-resolution slow motion, highlights, and more. Output via DVI and HDMI for multiview preview displays, and monitor the live output on a built-in 7" LCD screen. Add pro-level transitions and graphics into your programs. Plug into a switcher or video board. Control everything via a web browser on a mobile device or incorporate an optional 3Play control surface.

The 3Play Mini is easy to carry, and quick and easy to set up. The small size makes even the smallest venues accessible. Start producing right out of the box.
Capture

Automatic Replay Recording
Forget to press record? No problem. When you set your first Mark In or Mark Out point, 3Play Mini automatically triggers the Record button to capture incoming video signals.

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 Mini's other functions without interrupting capture.

Multi-Channel Recording
3Play Mini simultaneously records multiple channels of video at native resolution. Capture every angle of live action for instant replay, playback, or archive.
Playout

Simultaneous HD/SD Output
Record and playback content in HD and SD simultaneously, with configurable output resolutions.

Display Output
Supply an output signal from your production to a projector, scaling system, or display to present to an in-house or local audience.

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 clarity and detail.

Multi-Speed Playback
Choose to replay captured clips or roll imported media in real time or at variable speeds. Show the action again at game speed, or alter the playback rate for dramatic emphasis.

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.

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

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.

Dual Playout Channels
3Play 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.
Control

MIDI Support
Make automation of your production even easier or breakout control tasks to additional crew with 3Play Mini's extensive MIDI support. Add one or any number of MIDI devices that fit your application and budget, assign macros to controller buttons, and provide dedicated control over 3Play Mini operations -- even combining commands with a TriCaster on the network or meshing them with other live elements like sound, lighting, effects, and more.

Macros
Make commonly used series of commands automatic, or just simplify complex ones. Record any sequence of operations as a macro event, then trigger with a mouse click, keystroke, or MIDI button press.

Control Surface
Take a hands-on approach to 3Play Mini operation. More intuitively and accessibly tap into all the capabilities the system has to offer by incorporating a control surface, sold separately.

Transport Controls
3Play Mini's fundamental playback controls to stop, play, cycle, and scrub through clips let you navigate through your stored media with ease.
Operation

Highlight Reel Creation
Build and organize clip sequences in real time using the Play List. Configure audio settings and playback speed for each clip selected, add transitions, then select a background music track -- and you have a highlight reel that's ready for in-show playback or export for later use.

Program-Preview Workflow
Use 3Play Mini's dual playout channels in tandem to enable switcher-style operation -- cueing and preparing content on one channel, outputting on the other, and using your choice of effects to transition between the two.

Signal Processing
Go end-to-end with zero signal degradation. 3Play processes signals at their native resolution, meaning no in-between down conversion or up conversion that can affect image quality.

Session Format Support
3Play Mini supports live production in all industry-standard interlaced and progressive scan formats up to 1080p, with a variety of frame rates to choose from.

Multi-View Monitoring
Observe all incoming camera feeds and playout signals without an expensive, space-eating bank of monitors. You can even customize your screen layout to align with your preferred view of the action.

Visual Indicators
Real-time feedback in the form of color-coded visual indicators provides live cues while a production is in progress. Easily see the cameras currently recording, audio levels of incoming signals, clips currently displayed, and more.

Event Marking
Start and end events and clips at the exact frame you want with pinpoint Mark In and Mark Out controls. Each marked segment enters the Clips List as an event -- a collection of the actively recording camera angles -- and becomes available for playback.
Asset Management

Bookmarks
Mark key points in clips using the timecode bookmark system. Bookmarks are marked independently of In and Out points, so your original clip remains intact as you create specific points to jump to in the recorded video.

MAM Platform Integration
Integrate 3Play Mini with supported Media Asset Management (MAM) platforms, including axle Gear and Square Box Systems CatDV, to optimize any facility or workflow with dependencies on shared use and management of stored media assets.

Tagging Engine
Create your own coding system for instant metadata entry using the intelligent tagging engine. Assign keywords to teams, players, and more, and then log clips with just a couple of clicks or button taps to stay organized and on top of the action.

Event Filtering
Search for and filter clips by metadata descriptions to quickly and easily find the assets you're looking for. Simply enter keywords, and 3Play Mini will display only the events with matching text.

Metadata
Enter custom descriptions for each clip to easily identify, organize, and manage 3Play Mini assets.

List Organization
Organize all of your recorded content and stored media across multiple pages in both the Clips List and Play List, arranging assets by team, player, play type, time period, and more.
Workflow

Production Clocks
Keep tabs on production time with a primary clock matched to the current timecode, as well as a secondary clock matched to the custom-configured Start or End time, and hit every mark your show needs to hit.

Play List Export
Build a sequence of clips or a highlight reel in the Play List, then render as a single file available for playback from the Clips List and export for transfer or archive.

Media Export
Optimize stored media files for virtually any post-production purpose, with a versatile Export Media module that converts files into the most appropriate format or formats for their next destination.

Media Import
The Import Media module enables batch import of files with optional transcoding, and automatically categorizes and distributes incoming files to the appropriate locations for production use. All media formats apply. 3Play Mini will play them.

Media Browser
Use this familiar interface to navigate through stored media files, with intuitive organization and filtering for efficient, effortless asset retrieval.

Channel Info
View critical information about the signal currently assigned to the output channels, including the control mode, timecode, playback speed, and more.

Timecode
Scrub through and sequence recorded files quickly and easily with embedded timecode. 3Play Mini is capable of generating a local timecode from the internal system clock.
Configuration

Session Templates
Set up and store session settings in reusable templates to jump right to your custom configuration during pre-show activities.

Automatic Color Correction
Manually adjust additional characteristics of incoming signals connected to 3Play Mini with advanced color correction and shading -- or enable automatic adjustments to video inputs, matching color characteristics to a specific camera or mean characteristics of all incoming signals.

Proc Amp Controls
Make subpar sources look better -- and all of them perfectly consistent. Adjust color characteristics and levels for input sources, including brightness, contrast, hue, and saturation, as well as white balance settings, to perform a quick-fix for visuals and boost the look of your camera angles.

Recording Configuration
Freely choose the destination drive for each active recording and other assets associated with your 3Play Mini session.

Per-Asset Configuration
Fine-tuning at your fingertips. Freely configure input connection types and names, audio settings, color correction, clip settings, and more to your specifications. 3Play Mini's configuration options are extensive, easy to use, and customizable to your particular needs.
Visuals

Program-Preview Transitions
Operate the A and B output channels like a video mixer, cutting and transitioning between the two creatively, with hundreds of industry-standard wipes, dissolves, DVE effects, and more.

Warping Effects
Add another dimension to animated transitions with imaginative effects, like real-time cloth dynamics, 3D warping, and transformations, to create an impressive visual.

Animated Transitions
Raise production values with custom-created Animation Store Transitions. Embed your logo or signature visuals into transitions via full-color animated overlays, along with individual sounds for transitioning in and out.

Buffers
Access additional pre-produced video, motion graphics, titles, bugs, and animated effects instantly, and enhance the production value of live and recorded content. Watch folder functionality even enables remote, real-time updating of buffers over a local network.

Real-Time Layering
Apply titles, graphics, and animations to live output and video playback, layer one playback angle over another for picture-in-picture replay, or capture the game clock and layer over playback for official review.

Play List Transitions
Roll from clip to clip in the Play List using hard cuts, or include transitions between clips for added effect.
Audio

Audio Configuration
Each 3Play Mini video input supports independent configuration of the audio channel and audio input type for the simultaneously recorded sound, enabling you to standardize the audio between recordings or pair an audio source with a specific input for capture.

Mix-and-Match Audio Inputs
Use every digital or analog audio device within reach to capture nat sound, commentary, and more. 3Play Mini accepts any combination of supported audio connections for flexible setup and top-quality sound.
Multimedia

Still Grab
Capture freeze frames of the action from every angle simultaneously. Still images can be saved for later use or published in real time to supported storage locations and social media platforms.

Network Source Support
Connect 3Play Mini to a local network and tap into a variety of compatible devices for supplemental production content -- even selecting from multiple connected sources while live.

File Format Support
Add media of virtually any file format to the Clips List or Play List for playback and intermix with captured footage for content variety.

Background Music for Highlights
Import an MP3 or WAV file of your favorite music bed or song, apply it to your Play List, and pump up your highlight reels with a background audio track.

Media Playback
Load and playback both long- and short-form video clips, pre-produced video packages, and motion graphics with support for an extensive range of file formats to work with essentially any media asset.
Integration

Turnkey Solution
Everything you need to make professional-looking live sports coverage: multi-camera live video, multi-channel recording, instant replay with interpolated slow motion, in-game highlights, and more, built into one compact frame without all of the additional setup time, complex cabling, and cost.

Router Support
Scale your production to accommodate higher camera counts, flex from project to project, or simply integrate into an existing infrastructure with external video router support. Access and control upstream video routers right from the user interface, including models from Blackmagic Design, AJA, Miranda, Ensemble Designs, Utah Scientific, and brands supporting Grass Valley Native Protocol (GVNP).

AMP Support
3Play Mini provides for seamless integration with third-party products supporting Advanced Media Protocol (AMP), enabling compatible systems to issue commands to 3Play Mini for more fluid and sophisticated workflows.

Scoreboard Data Feed
Feed real-time scoreboard information into on-screen graphics. 3Play Mini's network sources support data feeds from compatible scoreboards through NewTek's LiveText companion software and developer network solutions over the local network, enabling display of the score, game clock, and other statistical information.

Display Ports
Dual VGA display ports supply auxiliary output feeds to local monitors or projectors, expanding user workspace and on-site viewing options.

Backup and Restore
Run your production operation with a safety net. Easily restore factory defaults, or create a bootable clone of 3Play Mini's system drive on another hard drive inserted into one of the removable drive bays or connected externally.

Multi-Tiered Fail-Safe
For added protection and safeguarding, 3Play Mini includes multiple "Always on Air" features that create a multi-tiered redundant fail-safe system that keeps your live production in tip-top shape, with minimal disruption even in the face of catastrophe.

Mix-and-Match Video Inputs
Go with new video cameras and get the most out of your existing inventory. Each 3Play Mini supports HD and SD digital cameras, with resolutions and frame rates freely configurable for each live video input.
Publishing

Social Media Share Panel
Take over second and third screens with built-in social media sharing. Real-time publishing instantly links you with all of your social networks -- like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube -- so you can share, distribute, and engage instantly, even when you don't have a dedicated social media producer on site.

FTP & File Copy
Duplicate and transfer saved files and recordings for internal and external distribution, getting content to the people that need it, quickly and efficiently.

Clip Publishing
Prepare recorded files for publishing, marking in and out points on the frames of preference, then upload to the desired destination for internal use or external viewing.
Total Solution

Cross-Platform Control
