Instant Replay App HyperSlow for HyperDecks
Hello replay operators,
We released version 3.0 of the instant replay app for Blackmagic HyperDecks, ATEM switchers and iOS Devices.
New features HyperSlow 3: “Highlight Cut” and “Jump to Timecode” button.
When combining an array of Blackmagic Hyperdecks (and optionally an ATEM switcher) with an Apple iPad running HyperSlow, live production people get a powerful, low cost live instant replay solution, suitable for sports events of all kind.
HyperSlow can be used to control up to 4 HyperDecks simultaneously from iPads or iPhones.
After connecting the decks with an iPad or iPhone using Ethernet recording of all decks can be started concurrently.
There are 6 “event buttons” available to mark important events and play back these events synchronously from all decks.
From record mode the “Stop Reverse” button jumps behind a marked event and the slow motion playback can immediately be started, while the number of seconds to jump can be freely set by the user.
The new “Highlight Cut” functionality is used to play back a series of interesting scenes automatically, e.g. the summary of a match half. When an ATEM switcher is connected, HyperSlow will handle channel switching as well as start/end transition (e.g. stinger) automatically.
All camera angles can also be played back sequentially one after another - called SUPERPLAY - as multi angle replay, with fully automated ATEM control.
Alternatively the instant replay can be played back synchronously from all HyperDecks while the ATEM mixer is controlled manually.
The new “Jump to timecode” button allows to jump to a defined point in the recorded content, useful to find and tag events after recording the complete sport event.
We recommends to use instant replay with frame rates of 50/60 p/i fps and 75% play back speed to get good results. At least acceptable results are achieved when using 50/25% play back speed.
As HyperSlow cannot play back and record at the same time, another Hyperdeck or recording device might be needed to continue recording the camera or pgm while playing back slow motion material.
Prices and availability: 50,- to 60,- US-Dollars, depends on local taxes.
Free app for 28 days testing are available on demand.
HyperSlow can be downloaded in Apple’s AppStore here:
