Local broadcasters, colleges and production companies who want to make the transition from shooting sports, to full-tilt live sports production know that fans want to be more than spectators. Diving catches. Game-winning plays. Out-of-bounds calls. Without the right production tools, they’re easy to miss.
For years, the cost of those production tools have knocked smaller broadcasters, schools and conferences right out of professional sports coverage ballpark. 3Play 425 delivers the professional instant replay that will put you head-and-shoulders above the local competition, and propel you into the majors.
