Broadcast & Mobile Production for TV and Radio

Television Operation

Due to its flexibility and sharing options, HARDATA HDX IPLAY 3 is the optimal tool for TV studio sound operators. They can each create personal pages, save their own effects and audio clips on a local disc or create global pages that connect to the server and share files from every workstation on the network simultaneously.

HDX IPLAY 3 is easily installed on a notebook computer for remote applications such as sports broadcasts, events or mobile studios. Any new files from remote events can then be uploaded to the main server.

Radio Operation

HARDATA HDX IPLAY 3 is an ideal content broadcast system for radio station program directors, simplifying effects insertion and other programming breaks for broadcast. Entirely tapeless, it allows operators to ingest and catalog music files and sound effects to create a complete library.

The system can work independently or can be integrated with HARDATA HDX RADIO 3 and share database and content with a centralized server.

HDX IPLAY 3 is easily installed on a notebook computer for remote applications such as sports broadcasts, events or mobile studios. The system is optimized for auto control use by an operator/announcer, and content identification by graphic image makes it an ideal live production assistant.

As the software is continually updated, operators will soon be able to search and access content from any workstation on the network, or broadcast it instantaneously live from the studio.
