SAM Highlights its LiveTouch Replay System at SVG Summit 2016
Seamless 4K Handling
LiveTouch 4K is SAM's UHD sports highlights system that makes highlights and instant replay workflows fast and effortless. The LiveTouch server and dedicated control panel enable instant shot selection and highlights sharing with 4K content. The intuitive touchscreen panel is quick to learn and easy to use, making highlights selection sure, simple and robust.
Flexibility and Speed for Large Events
LiveTouch can easily scale to support large HD and UHD events and multiple studio productions. Uniquely, it supports integrated editing with no delays due to media movement and without the cost of duplicating recordings or storage. Unique multicam configuration allows agile camera grouping and seamless access to all angles in live productions. Replays and playlists get to air faster, and system design is dramatically simplified with full effects and finishing tools embedded in the LiveTouch editor.
Unique SAM Technology
LiveTouch uses SAM’s unique FrameMagic technology, giving every frame a unique identity. As operators save or publish highlights and playlists, they appear instantly on the system as a unique asset. A publish event is not a duplicate file, but merely metadata markers describing the sequence of frames that comprise the highlight. This allows the same frame sequence to be instantly displayed and used in the highlight library or edit timeline giving replay operators and editors instant access to each other’s media.
LiveTouch offers unique integration with tOG Sports Graphics from RT Software putting live analysis tools directly onto the LiveTouch panel touchscreen. Users can add analysis tools such as lines, arrows and player tracking on live ingest or replays on the LiveTouch server.
Publish to Social Media
Using SAM’s Momentum workflow technology, users can publish highlights and replays straight to social media at the touch of a button delivering the fastest social media publishing in the market.
