The company will also feature PowerPlay, a turnkey post-production solution for managing live sports productions, as well as PlayMaker, Orad’s next generation sports replay server, which provides up to eight I/O channels of high quality ingest in multiple video formats, with synchronized slow motion replay, and powerful yet simple editing tools. 

Orad will also showcase iFind, a sophisticated media management solution that provides users with the ability to manage the essential elements of a professional broadcast server, graphics and archive systems from a web browser. Powerful search, workflow and management functionality are available, which can be tailored to a station’s individual requirements in order to maintain a smooth day-to-day operation. 

Orad will also show a new feature for Interact, which enables presenters to control graphical content directly on their touchscreens, video walls and other input devices. The latest new feature includes interacting with live web content from within the interactive graphics. Its dedicated OradTouch application enables presenters to interact with the graphics using their iPad and control the content and flow of production while moving around the production space freely.

New features for Orad’s Maestro graphics system include new graphics MAM system support, connection to social networks, integration to Quantel NLE, 3D transitions, support for MOS 2.8, videoEngine control, and SceneEdit2 to edit graphics during playout.
