videoReferee adds quad-split PIP feature to display scoreboard data

With a recent software update slomo.tv has added a new feature to its videoReferee judging system for displaying scoreboard data during replay. In order to make the scoreboard available to the judges a selected portion of the scoreboard can be included as a Picture In Picture (PIP) during search and playback. This image can be selected from any recording channel containing the scoreboard or from a separate channel dedicated to scoreboard recording.

FR Videoreferee quad-split

VideoReferee, which was recently used as the main video judging system during the IHF 2017 Handball World Championships in France, has added this important feature following the demands of the video judges.

During most competitions where video-assisted judging is used the videoReferee system is usually connected to the arena scoreboard controller for receiving the pertinent data (time, period, score, etc.). Quite often there are situations when, for some reason, such direct connection cannot be accomplished but are critical for synchronising video and scoreboard timing. A typical example is judging the validity of a throw in basketball at the end-of-shot clock. Only if the throw was made before the end of this time-slot is the throw valid.

In order to deal with such situations a new feature is added to videoReferee – displaying a selected portion of the scoreboard as a PIP during search and playback. The operator will select the scoreboard area to be displayed at system setup. During playback/search of any channel this part of the scoreboard will be displayed in the corner of the screen.

For systems with a limited number of channels (videoReferee -B, -Jr. or -SR) there is a special Scoreboard Camera Option, providing an additional external input channel via the USB interface. Any camera with SDI or HDMI output or even consumer camcorders can be used to capture the scoreboard.

Blackmagic DeckLink and UltraStudio Devices Used with Slomo.tv’s Sports Officiating System

Fremont, CA - October 08, 2016 - Blackmagic Design today announced that its DeckLink Quad 2, DeckLink 4K Pro and UltraStudio 4K Extreme capture and playback devices are used with Slomo.tv Inc.’s sports officiating system, videoReferee®. The system has become hugely popular with broadcasters and sports leagues, including the recent Rio Summer Olympics. Slomo.tv’s videoReferee®-IIM3 system, which is based around three DeckLink Quad 2 cards, was used to judge canoe competitions at the Rio games, and the DeckLink Quad 2’s real-time performance was a key feature.

Slomo.tv is a manufacturer of high quality multi-channel professional video recording products, including the popular videoReferee® line: a specialized multi-channel system for officiating sport events, providing a way to resolve complicated game situations and creating a video document of an entire event. The system also works with official time, score and game logs from scoreboard control systems and is used as part of sports events and broadcasts around the globe.

At NAB 2016, Slomo.tv introduced the videoReferee®-4, a new family of products that includes the world's first 16/18 channel sports video judging systems. Slomo.tv builds each videoReferee® -4/4G/4K around two DeckLink Quad 2 and a DeckLink 4K Pro PCIe cards, which provide the real-time capture and playback performance needed by sports officials and broadcasters as they make split-second decisions. Slomo.tv also introduced a new model of its all-in-one videoReferee Jr. based around the DeckLink Quad 2, which captures up to eight cameras in real time.

Many popular sports are now switching to video refereeing technologies for decision-making in contentious situations. The most notable is the transition to video assistant refereeing in soccer.

At the FIFA seminar recently held in Zurich, the referees were introduced to this technology with the Slomo.tv videoRefere®-4A server. It differs from the systems presented at NAB by having additional HDMI/SDI video output based on the Thunderbolt and PCIe-based UltraStudio 4K Extreme, which allows output to HD video via SDI and HDMI outputs simultaneously.

"We have been using Blackmagic Design boards for more than 11 years. Our very first replay server was based on one of the first DeckLink models, and we have been using the DeckLink technology ever since,” said Igor Vitiorets, CTO of Slomo.tv. “Throughout the years of working with Blackmagic Design, we know that Blackmagic will always make precisely the boards we need. When we first saw the DeckLink Quad 2, we were able to come up with the design for the new and videoReferee Jr. We are grateful to Blackmagic for being at the forefront of industry needs."

DeckLink Quad 2 is a high performance capture and playback solution that puts the power of eight DeckLink cards onto a single circuit board that plugs into a single PCI Express slot. It provides four independent capture and playback channels, but also four extra channels that developers, such as Slomo.tv, can use for configuring the card in any combination of up to eight capture or eight playback channels. The DeckLink 4K Pro is a PCIe capture and playback card with advanced 12G-SDI for working in SD, HD, Ultra HD and 4K DCI at up to 60 frames per second.

videoReferee®-IIM3 system, which is based around three DeckLink Quad 2 cards, was recently used for judging canoe competitions at the Olympic Games in Rio.

Amazing Video Experiences Enable Game-changing Sports Calls

sportsfield

As entertainment, sports, fashion, science, food and more info-junkies, people are fast using video as a quick, easy way to satisfy their needs to stay informed and connected about the things they care about. Whether viewing via the internet, TV or mobile devices—video is a part of everyday life. And how do you make it an excellent experience for millions of viewers?

Video solution providers are vying in this space to deliver real-time, reliable content available everywhere, and at high-quality with brilliant colors and immersive experiences—all with an efficiency that allows room for profits, innovation, growth, and more reach. And sports is the perfect place to show this evidence.

Open the hood to see how it’s done, and you’ll see it’s all driven by computing—from data centers to encoders/decoders, to edge devices. This is where Intel® Xeon® processors with built-in media accelerators best fit the bill for performance, coupled with Intel’s media software tools to speed video transcoding, deliver efficient/high-density streaming, and help video solution vendors build competitive features for their products and services. Video acceleration is fast growing with game-changing results in the world of sports—below is a key example of just how.

Innovation by Design, Technology provides Video Replay Advantage

We all remember viscerally that one play where the referee got the game-changing call wrong and our favorite team lost the competition. It’s human error. It happens. But it doesn’t need to anymore. Now, new solutions with the latest Intel technologies can help resolve challenging referee decision moments with fast, high-quality specialized video replay systems. slomotv

Slomo.tv, a producer of instant replay servers, innovated a family of videoReferee* systems that provide instant high-quality video replays from up to 18 cameras direct to referee viewing systems—allowing it to join the sports competition sidelines.

Built with Intel® Xeon® processors (E3-1500 v5) for extreme processing power, and optimized by Intel® Media Server Studio software for fast, high-quality video transcoding helped the company transform its solutions, which are being used around the world.

In addition to the server and video cameras placed around the sports play area, the system includes a monitor and an easy-to-use control panel that any referee can learn in less than an hour. Video can be reviewed in Quad mode simultaneously from 4 cameras at different angles, in slow motion, or using zoom function for objective, error-free gameplay analysis.

Helping Referees across a Diversity of Sports

Sports organizations like Kontinental Hockey League; basketball leagues in Korea, Russia, and Lithuania; and even canoe racing at the Rio Olympics in 2016 took notice of videoReferee—using it to help get their sports judging right. The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) is also testing similar systems for possible use in its worldwide football (known as soccer in some parts of the world) competitions.

What makes slomo.tv’s solution different from those offered by other video solution providers and manufacturers, is how it manages video compression. By using Intel’s Media Server Studio (a tool suite that provides the Intel® Media SDK, runtimes, and advanced analysis tools for media, video and broadcast application development), to optimize, accelerate and compress its video streams, the company sees flexibility and an efficiency advantage over traditional hardware-only designs to manage that function.

Slomo.tv CTO Igor Vitiorets says, "Without the Intel® Media SDK , we could not have created our innovative video replay and server products now in use worldwide, as it was the cornerstone for our software development and innovation."

Today, instant replays are in the center of sports. What could be ahead? Providing fans and sports consumers a more in-depth, insightful view of key support sports decision-making process than available today, or even more immersive virtual reality views on-the-spot.

Slomo.tv will release new 4K replay/slow-motion servers

RED ARROW FULL 4K replay and slow-motion server

Slomo.tv's Red Arrow and Blackjack slow-motion servers will be unveiled at next week's NAB show in Las Vegas

Slomo.tv will use NAB to premiere two full 4K replay and slow-motion servers, Red Arrow and BlackJack 4K.

Red Arrow offers four channels recording, four channels search and two channels playback with six 4K physical video ports, in 4K 50p, in a single 2RU enclosure. BlackJack 4K offers three in, three search and two out in 4K 50p/4K 60p in a single 4RU enclosure.

Red Arrow can also be used for six-channel 4K 50p recording for non-linear editing. Due to its four graphical ports Red Arrow allows four operators to work on one machine simultaneously. For example, two operators can work with configuration 662 (six recording, six search and two replay channels), the other two with configuration 442 (four recording, four search and two replay channels). While working on one machine, each operator has their own display that can function as the main interface or in multiviewer mode.

The system interface has a built-in multiviewer that provides monitoring of input and output signals and search through four channels using one standard 1920x1080 monitor. With an SSD based array, Red Arrow provides for storage of 266 hours 100Mbit HD video. The built-in DMR SATA slots can accommodate nine 3.5" SATA drives that can record 18 channels in ProRes 422 and 18 Proxy SD channels or 24 channels DVCPro HD with SD Proxy.

The Red Arrow can be operated as a stand-alone unit and does not need any additional soft- or hardware.

In 3G or HD the Red Arrow can operate with 20 channels recording and replays, while it provides four physical outputs. When Red Arrow runs in 3G / HD mode, the server offers 20 channels of 3G.

Slomo.tv's BlackJack 4K is a three in, two out 4K 50p server. With the brand new BlackJack 3G, 16 channels of 3G can be recorded, and up to three operators can edit four channels (slomo and highlights) with independent crossfade outputs – or the Blackjack can work as a 5-channel 4K 50p slow-motion machine.

12TB SSD, enough to record 266 hour of HD at 100 Mbit/s, are already on board. On all 12 input channels DMR is available. The BlackJack 4K can also search and mark clips on three 4K 50p channels simultaneously (during continuous recording) and deliver two channels of 4K 50p with the ability to fade between two separate signals.

For viewing recorded material BlackJack integrates with standard full HD monitors for displaying the interface with built-in multiviewer. BlackJack supports a large set of codecs: MJPEG, ProRes 422, DVCPro HD, AVID DNxHD, XDCAM 50Mbit, MPEG2, MPEG4, H264, DVCPro50, DVCProHD, DV25, IMX and containers natively compatible with Apple Final Cut, Avid, Adobe Premiere, GVG Canopus.

Two World Premieres For slomo.tv

BINGEN, GER: In December Broadcast Solutions held its Broadcast Innovation Day at the company’s headquarters in Germany. During the event visitors had the chance to witness the world premiere of two new members to the slomo.tv product family. With BlackJack 4K and Arrow 4K the company once again sets a new standard in slow motion servers. Initially planned for this years’ NAB show both products were shown for the first time at the Broadcast Innovation Day and are available immediately.

BlackJack

With the only 3 IN 2 OUT 4K 50p server available in a single enclosure, again the manufacturer underlines its ambition to be one step ahead of the competition. With the brand new BlackJack 3G optionally 16 channels 3G can be recorded and up to 3 operators can edit 4 channels (slomo and highlights) with independent crossfade outputs - or it may just work as a 5-channel 4K 50p slow motion machine. Both varieties provide the usual comprehensive features that slomo.tv offers on all platforms.

12TB SSD - enough to record 266h HD with 100 Mbit/s are already on board. On all 12 input channels DMR is available. slomo.tv offers this unique engine with the capability to transcode all channels live during recording thus providing all content without delay to the external drives for further processing. With BlackJack all material is available in nearly all popular codecs - up to Apple Pro Res HQ 444.

ARROW 442
ARROW 442

Arrow

Slomo.tv not only sets new standards at the top level range of slomo servers - even in the entry level the company offers new gear. With Arrow slomo.tv offers a new 2RU server that provides the full range of functions inherent to the Simple R series. Only the storage has been replaced by conventional HDDs and choosing a larger housing the construction design efforts are reduced. As a junior member of the company's 4K line, Arrow 4K possesses unique features unavailable in servers of other manufacturers. In particular, the server supports simultaneous recording of 2 channels 4K 50p/4K 60p, the search on 2 channels and playback of 2 channels.

If space is not an issue arrow devices are a cost effective alternative to Simple R servers. Currently Arrow is 30% cheaper than SSD-based and 1 RU sized Simple R servers. Since its release 3 years ago Simple R is considered to be the slow motion server with the best price-performance ratio on the market. Arrow now makes professional video recording and live replay (slow motion) equipment available to companies that previously considered professional live replay gear unattainable due to budget reasons.

All slomo.tv 4K servers have the following advantages:

  • The use of a standard Full HD display for displaying the interface with built-in multiviewer.
    This eliminates the need of using several 4K / 4x3G SDI monitors.
  • Support of all available transmission options: 4K 50p/4K 60p signals via 4 x 3G SDI - quadrant transmission using 3G Level A / 3G Level B and SMPTE 425-3.
  • The ability to create Quick Time ProRes full resolution files natively compatible with editing systems.
  • SSD based subsystems, common to all slomo.tv servers.
  • Ability to work in a network.
