Adding Telestration and Analysis Graphics to the K2 Family

With control via the Dyno S touchscreen!

Add graphical analysis to your replay clips with the Grass Valley edition of tOG-Sports. Simply use the touchscreen of the Dyno S to select clips for analysis, add telestration using a palette on the Dyno S screen and play straight to air or lay the clip off for use later.  This is a tightly integrated solution with the K2 and a truly unique solution.

Functionality of the tOG-Sports GV Edition

Intended as a low cost add on to the K2, the tOG-Sports GV Edition delivers an entry level of high quality telestration. See the tOG-Sports brochure for more details and how it compares to the other products in the tOG-Sports family – and remember, you can upgrade to the additional functionality in tOG-Sports Lite and Pro at any time.
  • High quality 2d “on screen” graphics – lines, circles, regions.
  • Magnifiers and highlight tools.
  • Vertical and horizontal split screen.
  • Keyframing of graphics for smooth movements.
  • Easy customisation such as home and away colours
  • Live or near live operation.
  • Layoff analysis clips to K2 for later use (replay).
  • It is worth noting that amongst other things 3d perspective, tied to pitch and chromakeyed graphics and the ability to save and recall graphics stacks are not included in the GV Edition – but are available as upgrades.

Flexibility in Deployment

There is great flexibility for configuring tOG-Sports with K2, with the following options supported:
  • SDI baseband into tOG-Sports from 1st K2 channel, analysis sequences created and when required the tOG Sports operator can render any of these out live as SDI baseband to desk / TX.
  • SDI baseband into tOG Sports from 1st K2 channel, record to tOG Sports local disk in broadcast quality DVPro100 (MXF wrapper) or AVC-I. This file can then be played or transferred as required.
  • SDI into tOG Sports from 1st K2 channel, record SDI output from tOG back to 2nd K2 channel.
  • Network based file transfer to / from the K2.
  • Streaming clip from K2 live over the network, record back to K2 over network.
