“tOG-Sports (SDI)” is a quick turnaround tool for adding split screen video, zoom, magnifiers and telestration graphics to clips on a LiveTouch replay server. It runs on a separate broadcast specification PC and is operated using either an intuitive touch screen GUI on the LiveTouch panel or the more comprehensive operator screen. Aimed primarily at live sports productions, tOG-Sports (SDI) puts the graphic capabilities directly in the hands of the replay operator.
The system can be configured to output direct to a desk for immediate TX, or to lay the enhanced clips back to a LiveTouch channel.
The split screen tool offers both vertical and horizontal options and along with the zoom tool allows the operator to pan around the clips ensuring the main action areas are captured. In the case of the zoom tool this is keyframable, resulting in smooth flowing professional looking content.
The telestration tools include a wide range of 2d lines, regions, highlighters, circles, and magnifiers which can be set up for user preferences such as home and away colours, size, opacity and many other options. Being accessible directly from the replay panel touchscreen makes it fast and easy for a replay operator to add graphics as they are clipping up during a live event. All this, combined with the fluid and fast workflow means that informative analysis can be made available for your viewers on the first replay.
tOG-Sports (SDI) is the start point for what is possible, as its functionality can be enhanced with a wide range of bolt on options. This can include 4k support, presenter led touchscreen analysis, state of the art “tied to pitch graphics such as player trails and offside lines, virtual advertising and even augmented reality graphics.
Whatever your genre of sport, graphics requirement or budget, tOG-Sports (SDI) can be configured or upgraded to match your needs exactly.
