NewTek Replay the Action at the 2011 BMX French National Championship

High Definition slow motion instant replay is no longer out of reach with NewTek 3Play™

NewTek 3Play was used to broadcast in HD the 2011 BMX French National Championship on big screens, on July 2nd and 3rd. More than 1200 riders were on the starting line for the most important race of the year. This year, gathering the elite of the BMX bikers, the race was fierce and included champions like Joris Daudet, two times Cruiser World Champion and Laeticia Le Corguille, world champion and Olympic silver medalist.

The operator used 3Play to replay the actions of the race on big screens to the 10000 visitors attending the championship. The 3Play was integrated in a system with 2 computer sources for titling and advertising, 6 videos sources including 4 cameras and an external source coming from another OB Van.

“We were really impressed by how easy the 3Play is to integrate and to use for the first time.” said Nicolas Siron, director of, “It is a well-thought and well-made product, the ideal solution for small production company like us. We produce concerts and festivals, but thanks to the 3Play, extending our expertise and capabilities to Live Sport Broadcast is now an option”.
