Basingstoke, United Kingdom (September 14th, 2023) — Hawk-Eye’s innovative new remote production and instant replay broadcast solution will be launching globally at this year’s International Broadcasting Convention (IBC). IBC takes place at the RAI in Amsterdam from September 15th-18th.
Hawk-Eye Replay is a remote production and instant replay broadcast solution built on Hawk-Eye’s Synchronised Multi-Angle Replay Technology (SMART) systems. Continually building on its robust, award-winning technology, Hawk-Eye Replay is focused on reimaging broadcasting production workflows and outputs.
With playback and slow motion functionality, data-driven clipping applications and remote production capabilities, Hawk-Eye Replay offers an easy to use replay interface and a highly scalable architecture to meet any size of live production.
Built for the industry
With unique to market product specifications and integration with robust data systems, Hawk-Eye Replay has been created with the needs of the industry at the forefront of the development and future roadmap; with prioritisation of client requests for features. The Hawk-Eye Precision Controller has been “built” by current industry operators making it intuitive and configurable for speed and efficiency.
Hawk-Eye Replay is underpinned by a global 24/7 support structure and a dedicated client manager responsible for overseeing all support needs. With comprehensive training for operators, engineers, and production staff available for onboarding.
Through an intuitive controller and UI design the transition for operators is simplified and training times significantly reduced. Operators have full control to customise their controller, sidecar and workspace with up to four operator controlled multiviews per server.
With remote operation brings efficiencies in multi game operatives and lower travel and expense costs. The Hawk-Eye Replay system is lightweight for shipping efficiencies when required. With a competitive pricing model and flexible licensing structures Hawk-Eye Replay is created to be straightforward for all.
Social and sustainable impact
A positive environmental impact can be gained through reduced levels of travel that are required when utilising the remote functionality, the smaller size and lighter weight means that systems can be transported in fewer packages reducing the environmental impact that multiple shipments can create.
