    Redundant Capture Mode*
    3Play 4800 optionally allows 4-channel redundant recording to protect critical footage and speed up turnaround time for post-production workflows. With Redundant Mode enabled, 3Play 4800 delivers up to four primary recordings, each with its own duplicate recording backed up to a secondary drive.
    *Available only with 3Play 4800

    Automatic Replay Recording
    Forget to press record? No problem. When you set your first Mark In or Mark Out point, 3Play automatically triggers the Record button to capture incoming video signals.

    Synchronized, Continuous Capture
    When you press the Record button, configured sources are continuously captured and stored until you manually deactivate recording. Freely focus on 3Play's other functions without interrupting capture.

    Multi-Channel Recording
    3Play simultaneously records multiple channels of video at native resolution. Capture every angle of live action for instant replay, playback, or archive.



    Simultaneous HD/SD Output
    Record and playback content in HD and SD simultaneously, with configurable output resolutions.

    Display Output
    Supply an output signal from your production to a projector, scaling system, or display to present to an in-house or local audience.

    Interpolated Slow Motion
    Amplify the intensity of highlights or analyze the action frame by frame with smooth, interpolated slow motion. Replay the action at half-speed, quarter-speed, and more with incredible clarity and detail.

    Multi-Speed Playback
    Choose to replay captured clips or roll imported media in real time or at variable speeds. Show the action again at game speed, or alter the playback rate for dramatic emphasis.

    List Playback
    Choose and compile clips for sequenced playback. Create highlight reels or build blocks of content, then hit play to roll from one clip to the next automatically.

    Clip Playback
    Capture and mark live action as 3Play events, then replay clips from multiple angles. You can also import clips and operate 3Play as a media server.

    Delayed Output
    Once you begin recording, you can initiate playback whenever you like. Output recorded video seconds, minutes, even hours after recording starts.

    Live Output
    Send any incoming video signal directly to one or both output channels to supply a live feed to downstream displays or production systems.

    Dual Playout Channels
    3Play provides two fully independent, simultaneous playout channels for output, each capable of supplying a live feed or playback of recorded content to a downstream display or production system. It's like having two playback devices in one.



    MIDI Support*
    Make automation of your production even easier or breakout control tasks to additional crew with 3Play's extensive MIDI support. Add one or any number of MIDI devices that fit your application and budget, assign macros to controller buttons, and provide dedicated control over 3Play operations—even combining commands with a TriCaster™ on the network or meshing them with other live elements like sound, lighting, effects, and more.
    *Not Available on 3Play 425

    Make commonly used series of commands automatic, or just simplify complex ones. Record any sequence of operations as a macro event, then trigger with a mouse click, keystroke, or MIDI button press.
    *Not available on 3Play 425

    Control Surface*
    Take a hands-on approach to 3Play operation. More intuitively and accessibly tap into all the capabilities the system has to offer with the companion control surface.
    *Compatible hardware control surfaces for 3Play Mini and 3Play 425 sold separately

    Transport Controls
    3Play's fundamental playback controls to stop, play, cycle, and scrub through clips let you navigate through your stored media with ease.



    Highlight Reel Creation
    Build and organize clip sequences in real time using the Play List. Configure audio settings and playback speed for each clip selected, add transitions, then select a background music track—and you have a highlight reel that's ready for in-show playback or export for later use.

    Multi-Angle Clip Preview*
    In addition to monitoring all incoming live feeds, you can preview every angle of recorded clips simultaneously with 3Play 4800 and 3Play 440. Simply turn on the embedded clip monitors and preview stored footage in the user interface, multi-view display, or both.
    *Not available on 3Play Mini or 3Play 425

    Program-Preview Workflow*
    Use 3Play's dual playout channels in tandem to enable switcher-style operation—cueing and preparing content on one channel, outputting the other, and using your choice of effects to transition between the two—to simplify your workflow or enhance production value.
    *Not available on 3Play 425

    Signal Processing
    Go end-to-end with zero signal degradation. 3Play processes signals at their native resolution, meaning no in-between down conversion or up conversion that can affect image quality.

    Session Format Support
    3Play supports live production in all industry-standard interlaced and progressive scan formats up to 1080p, with a variety of frame rates to choose from.

    Multi-View Monitoring
    Observe all incoming camera feeds and playout signals without an expensive, space-eating bank of monitors. You can even customize your screen layout to align with your preferred view of the action.

    Visual Indicators
    Real-time feedback in the form of color-coded visual indicators provides live cues while a production is in progress. Easily see the cameras currently recording, audio levels of incoming signals, clips currently displayed, and more.

    Event Marking
    Start and end events and clips at the exact frame you want with pinpoint Mark In and Mark Out controls. Each marked segment enters the Clips List as an event, a collection of the actively recording camera angles, and becomes available for playback.


    Asset Management

    Mark key points in clips using the timecode bookmark system. Bookmarks are marked independently of In and Out points, so your original clip remains intact as you create specific points to jump to in the recorded video.
    *Not available on 3Play 425

    Integrate 3Play with supported Media Asset Management (MAM) platforms, including axle Gear and Square Box Systems CatDV, to optimize any facility or workflow with dependencies on shared use and management of stored media assets.

    *Not available on 3Play 425

    Event Filtering
    Search for and filter clips by metadata descriptions to quickly and easily find the assets you're looking for. Simply enter keywords, and 3Play will display only the events with matching text.

    Keep tabs on production time with a primary clock matched to the current timecode, as well as a secondary clock matched to the custom-configured Start or End time, and hit every mark your show needs to hit.

    Play List Export
    Build a sequence of clips or a highlight reel in the Play List, then render as a single file available for playback from the Clips List and export for transfer or archive.

    Media Export
    Optimize stored media files for virtually any post-production purpose, with a versatile Export Media module that converts files into the most appropriate format or formats for their next destination.
