LiveTouch 4K is SAM’s UHD sports replay and highlights offering, launched at IBC 2016. LiveTouch 4K offers the fastest, most efficient workflow at 4K giving instant access and collaboration by all users on the system.
It’s built on the latest SAM server architecture and uses SAM’s unique FrameMagic technology to enable powerful workflows in standalone systems or integrated into a wider production environment.
LiveTouch’s inter-server workflows allow the system to thrive in 4K. Multiple servers can be pooled together allowing LiveTouch to seamlessly scale to larger 4K productions, providing flexible workflows to customers while also preserving rack space in trucks and studios. These larger LiveTouch zones can be treated as a single multi-camera production bank, allowing instant access to more cameras and feeds than any other system.
LiveTouch is tightly integrated with SAM’s 4K editors eliminating the need to move media and breaking the physical link between replay and editing workflows. This offers game changing new 4K production workflows completely unique in the industry.
The LiveTouch panel has a compact design with tools to emphasize and enhance usability. Not only does it feature familiar placement of key buttons, it also offers an intuitive touch screen making highlights and playback easier than ever before.
LiveTouch 4K is designed for the demanding live studio environment and is a complete package ready for action.
