Quantel launches sports highlights system LiveTouch

Quantel has launched its range of studio sports highlighting systems which it showcased at IBC last year.

Branded LiveTouch, the systems feature live control panels and unique bi-directional editor integration and have been developed following close consultation with sports broadcasters and their on-air operators.

LiveTouch features a purpose built control panel to make highlights selection fast, sure and simple.

LiveTouch encompasses a complete range of studio highlighting applications from single operator standalone set-ups to complete, integrated production systems.

At the system's heart is the 3U LiveTouch server, with inter-server streaming allowing multiple LiveTouch servers to be used as one large, virtual server, giving operators instant access to any clip irrespective of where it is being recorded.

LiveTouch also integrates Quantel editing and allows a two way workflow.

Editors can access the highlights with no media movement and any panel can play back any completed sequence.

Using Quantel's FrameMagic technology, the system delivers a fast highlights-to-edit-to-air workflow with no need to duplicate storage for editing.

The range includes LiveTouch Highlights, a stand alone entry level system, LiveTouch Production aimed at more sophisticated studio applications and LiveTouch Enterprise, which adds sports highlighting to Quantel Enterprise sQ fast turnaround production systems.

"We have tested LiveTouch with a number of major sports broadcasters around the world since we first showed it in prototype form at IBC 2014," said Steve Owen, Quantel marketing director.

"It has been very enthusiastically received, particularly the up-to-the-minute look and functionality of the control panel, the inter-server streaming and the integrated editing.”

“And this is just the start; LiveTouch will grow rapidly in capabilities and applications over the coming months as our development team continues to drive forward what's possible in sports highlighting."
