Telestration Augmentation On Display At SVG Summit


NEW YORK — If you’re anywhere within the vicinity of the Hilton Midtown Hotel, you may wish to sneak a peek at new telestration software on display for Sports Video Group (SVG) Summit attendees.

Thanks to a new partnership with neo 360, touchscreen video control technology is now being included in FingerWorks ReVu software.

This, the companies say, gives sportscasters the ability to use telestration, graphics, and complete touchscreen video control live on-air. The tool is being demonstrated through Tuesday (12/11) at the SVG Summit, where the companies can be found in Booth #31, within the Mercury Ballroom.

The joint solution combines FingerWorks ReVu, a real-time telestration software which has a customizable user interface and tools and supports 4K using NDI or 12G SDI streaming and neo 360 an all-in-one video encoder and player enabling analysts to precisely control video speed, direction, and frame-by-frame playback using simple touch commands.

FingerWorks ReVu offers more than 100 innovative and customizable telestration tools, which analysts can use to illustrate critical moments using clear and concise visuals, as well as automatic roster and player ID tools, which make it possible to follow the standings in real-time. At the same time, neo 360 provides additional interactivity with granular swipe-and-tap video controls. Sports Analysts can change video speed, reverse direction, pause, and present forward or backward frame-by-frame playback of video simply by touching the screen as they analyze clips.

“Fingerworks Telestrators have been a technology market leader in sports broadcasting for over 20 years. At our very first meeting with the Fingerworks team all parties immediately realized the synergy of combining these two powerful technologies” said David Borish, CEO and Co-Founder of neo 360. “We are looking forward to bringing this new way of sports storytelling to broadcasters around the world.”

Launched in 1998 Fingerworks Telestrators technologies are used in a variety of sports productions, including Fox’s NFL, USGA, NASCAR, UFC, and NCAA coverage; CBS’s NFL, PGA, and NCAA coverage; NBC’s PGA, Olympics, and NHL coverage; and TSN’s CFL, curling, NHL, and MLS coverage.
