Product ManualManual

The DC-PLAYOUT is the most advanced IP-based replay system and production suite available today. The DC-PLAYOUT allows operators to utilize the revolutionary DreamCatcher™ feature set in a native IP-based production environment for ultimate content access and control.

The DC-PLAYOUT's advanced production tools include 4K/UHD pan and scan zooming, frame-accurate split-screen views, graphics overlays, statistics integration. The DC-PLAYOUT's 10-bit encoding allows for a standard that natively supports the latest camera technology including 8K, 4K/UHD and HDR cameras.

The DC-PLAYOUT provides the option to scale playout channels and operator positions independently from ingest channels. Paired with DC-200ES Series over a distributed 10GbE network, the DC-PLAYOUT series becomes a powerful storytelling tool capable of immediately accessing content from anywhere on the DreamCatcher™ feature.

Leveraging Evertz' 10GbE SDVN technology, the DreamCatcher™ platform utilizes the available compute of every DreamCatcher™ server to provide an unprecedented level of power that can accommodate any new production workflow for years to come!
