Grass Valley has added extra capabilities to its LiveTouch live highlights and replay production system, it announced at NAB.

The latest version incorporates 4K UHD slow-motion replay, direct playout and full super slow-motion support (2x, 3x, 4x, 6x, 8x).

The new integrated LiveTouch HDR capability handles colour mapping from any format to the production format of choice, eliminating the need for external HDR processing. Users can also work across multiple formats.

Also, the new version of LiveTouch offers an advanced audio editing suite with intuitive controls for quick, easy editing and smooth playout sequences during a live event. Audio and video can be split and edited independently, to advance or delay audio in a playlist, and auxiliary audio tracks can easily be dropped into a LiveTouch playlist to add music or sound effects.

Chris Merrill, director of product marketing, Grass Valley, said: "LiveTouch sits at the heart of a complete sports workflow that supports unmatched, fast turnaround replay and highlights creation, with a unique distributed production model, at a substantially lower cost than any other system. With its “all access” to “all content” design, collaborative workflows in either SDI or IP have never been so easy or fast."
