Release summary (major new features).
Unit 6, Hurlingham Business Park, Sullivan Road, London SW6 3DU.
New Virtual stadium with customisation options.
The virtual stadium is completely new with a different look and feel to reflect modern stadia.
More options are now available to allow precise customisation. Home and away supporter colours can be defined and show up as home and away sections.
New Virtual Stadium with two tiers showing away section (Blue) in right corner lower tier.
Dugouts are now included with subs on benches wearing home and away coloured bibs.
Dugouts with subs bench.
You can choose to just show one tier of the stadium to fit in with games or sports that are typically played in smaller stadiums with the roof on or off for either. Or you can choose to have no tiers at all to make the stadium completely sport and league agnostic.
Single Tier. No Tiers.
Night or day skies can be chosen with floodlights on or off to suit the time of day in which the match is played.
Additionally, a new “Player View” camera has been added to allow you to view the action from any point of view on the pitch.
Offside Camera. Player View angle of the same action.
Female 3d Player Models.
To allow the virtual players to be used for women’s sports, female models are now available alongside male models with female specific body shape and features.
As with the male player models, details such as shirt type (Stripes, plain etc), kit colours, skin tone, hair colour and boots style are all selectable allowing the player to be customisable to fit the look.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered Player Drag cleanup.
When dragging a player to a new position, AI is employed to fill in the hole left in the background at the player’s original position filling in pitch lines. The amount of manual intervention needed to clean up a player drag is greatly reduced in many cases.

Faster and easier recording (layoff).
Once you have completed an Analysis sequence and wish to send it to layoff, you can simply right click it from the browser window and select “Record as….” which will trigger the layoff instantly. In addition, with the use of “CTRL” you can select multiple Analyses and lay them off with one command.
Sharing your work with other devices and colleagues can be done as soon as you are ready, freeing you up to move on to the next analysis.
Record multiple Analyses.
Copying analyses between Tactic devices is now even easier. Simply right click on the Analysis you wish to share, and choose “Share Analysis”. All the elements of the analysis file (Clip, Analysis file,Thumbnail etc) will then be copied to a single folder.
To use the analysis on another Tactic Device simply copy that folder to the Analysis folder on your new device.
New Playlist feature.
The playlist feature replaces Stories. Clips, analyses and bookmarks that a presenter may wish to use can be saved to a playlist.
Multiple playlists can be saved for later recall, and organised in a folder structure to ensure that they can be easily found at a later time allowing you to ensure that the presenter always has what they want, and nothing else available on their interface.
