Brazil's TV Globo has announced that it is beefing up its São Paulo sports and entertainment studio productions with Orad's PlayMaker. PlayMaker will provide advanced replay server capabilities for both live operations in OB Vans and pre/post program studio production.
TV Globo production staff will use PlayMaker's dedicated studio work mode to create and broadcast highlight packages. PlayMaker's studio mode lets users toggle between incoming feeds, simplifying the process for editing highlight content from multiple sources. With PlayMaker, each feed has its own playlist, so that each marked in and out point is added directly to the relevant playlist, eliminating the time-consuming process of first saving clips and later pushing them into a playlist.

PlayMaker is designed for managing fast-paced sports workflows. With support for a wide range of codecs and up to eight I/O channels, PlayMaker offers users high-quality ingest and synchronised slow-motion replay capabilities combined with powerful, yet easy-to-use editing tools designed specifically for sports production. PlayMaker's file-sharing feature enables users to preview, copy, or playout clips over a network in real time, optimising workflow efficiency.
