Partnership Gives Sportscasters the Ability to Use Telestration, Graphics and Video Playback for a Complete Touchscreen System
LAS VEGAS — FingerWorks™, the number one live telestration software used by professional sports broadcasters, has partnered with neo 360, a revolutionary touchscreen technology video control company, to bring a new feature to the world of sports analysis. Combining the best of both companies’ technologies — FingerWorks’ ReVu solution with neo 360’s touchscreen control units, the resulting interface provides users with a complete telestration, graphics and touchscreen solution for seamless on-air broadcasts. FingerWorks will demonstrate this latest system at the 2019 NAB Show (Booth SL6412).
Using the real-time telestration features of FingerWorks’ ReVu solution, live sport and e-sport analysts can access imported clips and backgrounds from the event. Broadcasters can also control and manipulate these videos directly using FingerWorks’ interface and neo 360’s touchscreen capabilities. By merging live clips and still image ingest into one seamless operation, the FingerWorks ReVu offers an ease of operability.
“Combining our telestration technology with neo 360’s touchscreen control unit provides sports analysts with one unique product that gives them the ability to control direction, speed and playbacks with ease,” says Bryan McKoen, owner, FingerWorks Telestrators. “We are excited to share this groundbreaking interface with other industry professionals at this year’s NAB show.”
The software provides a customizable user interface with more than 100 tools and supports 4K using NDI or 12G SDI streaming. With neo 360’s all-in-one video encoder and player, analysts can now manipulate video speed and direction with simple swipe-and-tap control features. Sports analysts can also use this technology to pause and present frame-by-frame video playback.
“With Fingerworks leading the live telestration industry for over 20 years, we were thrilled about the partnership opportunity to create a revolutionary, all-in-one system,” says David Borish, CEO & co-founder of neo 360. “The combination of these two powerful technologies has created a state-of-the-art solution that modernizes the world of sportscasting.”
