DreamCatcher™ DC-PLAYOUT

Primary Clip Playback Solution

A New Replay Standard

The DC-Playout provides a scalable solution to ensure your replay system is provided with flexible and affordable output to fit the needs of your next show. Whether those outputs be traditional baseband outputs or next generation IP stream outputs, the DC-Playout handles each scenario with ease.

With support for up to 4 monitors, the DC-Playout allows the user to tailor the DreamCatcher™ experience on a custom user interface powered by VUE. In addition to flexible user stations, the DC-Playout provides added compute working with the other nodes in your cluster to accomplish tasks, such as the assembly of a global federated database, integrated media transcode, and remote output control.

Case Study: Pitt Studios

We did our due diligence when it came to replay, and through that process … we saw something [in DreamCatcher™] that allowed us from start to finish on an event day to have basically a superior workflow. It makes pre-production easier and makes post-production easier, so what happens during the production is obviously a bonus.
