Solutions for Coaching & Sports Production
Comprehensive Sports Solutions
Orad provides a complete tool kit to address the different aspects of live sports events, including sports enhancement graphics, virtual advertising, slow motion replay servers and more. The PlayMaker Orad’s next generation sports replay server, provides up to 8 I/O channels of high quality ingest in multiple video formats, with synchronized slow motion replay, and powerful yet simple editing tools. PlayMaker has been enhanced to include studio mode, a dedicated workflow for highlight editing of multiple playlists from various incoming feeds, and FlexFX for real-time video effects and 3D graphic transitions for sports highlights, integrated into PlayMaker’s workflow from within the compact 3U chassis. Another major add on to PlayMaker is the Pivot application. Pivot is a Windows based controller that coexists with the PlayMaker controller, and can be used by the PlayMaker operator or by a production assistance to generate clips, playlists, transfer content between servers, and so on.
To enhance the sports broadcast, Orad recommends its Emmy Award-winning MVP for fast preparation of captivating sports highlight clips that better visualize critical plays, the flow of the game, and post-game analysis. New enhancements include Run by Run, where only the chosen player continues to move while the other players are frozen in place, iFly with tracked flying cameras allowing object tracking arrows and players’ highlights while the cameras move, new graphic effects and more.
Orad’s rich sports graphics integrate with statistic collection systems and databases, allowing the operator to take to air the most updated information in a fraction of a second. The sports graphics integrate with real time players tracking applications and visualizes the collected data such as distance covered and “heat maps,” for exciting sports coverage.
MVP provides fast preparation of captivating sports highlight clips to better visualize critical plays, the flow of the game, and post-game analysis.
MVP can be deployed for any type of sport, even golf, baseball or ice hockey where field lines are minimal or non-existent. MVP can be used for live productions or highlight shows, from either the OB VAN or the studio, and supports up to 32 different cameras without camera or lens modifications.
MVP provides an unprecedented amount of enhancement features including: tied to the field 3D drawings (arrows, markers, areas and many more), measurements of distance and speed, magnifier to zoom in on controversial plays, and drawing trajectories of the players’ movements on the field and of the ball’s movement in the air. In addition to the more traditional enhancement tools, MVP also offers virtual camera flights between two real cameras, viewing a play as it is drawn on the coach’s drawing board comparing the position and technique of individual athletes, drawing a specific player in colour on top of a black and white background, and breaking down a play into a sequence of frames to better analyze the player’s movements.
