Key functionality of Tactic Advanced

Easy to use

Ease of use was the most important driver for  the new Tactic Advanced user interface. Customers told us they wanted great looking graphics but, just as importantly, the system had to be intuitive enough for a PA or an EVS operator to use with little or no training.

Link together analysis tools

Perfect for creating new tools to help tell specific stories. Tactic Advanced has the ability for users to build own custom tools by linking together several “standard” tools (such as circle, line and infill). These custom tools can then be added to the palette ready for use when needed.

Create your own styles

Have your own unique on air look. The graphical tools in Tactic Advanced have been built with easy customisation in mind. Not just the concept of home and away colours but fundamentally changing the style. Create your own textures in PhotoShop, load in and go to air!

Automatic set up and configuration

Auto everything! Top end sports analysis graphics need two key areas of functionality – camera tracking to tie graphics to the pitch in the correct orientation plus keying to put the players on top of the graphic. With Tactic Advanced the system automatically handles everything.

Add custom graphics

Tactic Advanced is built on RT Software’s proven graphics platform, Edit-3d. Consequently a 3D graphics editor is available to build complex case specific graphics, either in-house or through RTSW graphics services arm.

Flexible workflows

A flexible approach to content and workflows.  The video content can be live camera feeds (sitting on a DDR channel such as EVS) or be file-based. Output can be live SDI or file-based. All popular broadcast SDI and file formats are supported, up to and including UHD 60P.

Touchscreen support

Put analysis in the hands of the presenters. Tactic Advanced supports a second screen output for touch screens.

Metric based graphics (Option)

Metrics based graphics (speed, distance, height etc) help bring deeper understanding to analysis. Available on pitch based sports such as football, rugby, hockey etc.

Easy to learn

There is no need for classroom based training. Tactic Advanced is so easy to use it does not require any on site training. Instead, to help you get the best from the product, a free 2-hour, one-to-one remote screen-based familiarisation session is available to all users.
