Video Gear Speeds Sports Replays with ZEPLAY

Leading broadcast rental company in the Philippines installs ZEPLAY in production truck

Video Gear, Inc., a leading broadcast rental company in Manila, is the supplier of outside broadcast facilities to leading TV Networks in the Philippines. The truck is fitted with the ZEPLAY multichannel instant replay server from Tightrope Media Systems, which has impressed TV director Dong Capinpuyan, Head of Sports5 Production, a division of TV5, the fast growing national TV Network in the Philippines.

"The interface was quite new to us, but as our operators got used to it we realized the features that were available," he said. "The playlist creation is very convenient, especially during production or on the fly editing in a live environment."

We started using the ZEPLAY extensively over a year ago and we have yet to encounter any issues with the hardware or software – in fact everything has run smoothly from the start.


ZEPLAY is a four in, four out HD server. It is designed to provide a constant recording of four key camera angles, with the ability to instantly jump to any point in the recording and replay one or more channels, at variable speed if required. Crucially, the user interface is designed to be very simple and intuitive, making it fast and reliable under pressure.

The Video Gear truck with its ZEPLAY server has been used for a wide variety of TV5's sports coverage, including Ultimate All Stars (NBA Stars vs Philippine Basketball Association) PXC (Pacific Xtreme Championships) Mix Martial Arts PBA basketball and UFL football, as well as local and international boxing and Muay Thai. The FIBA Asia 2011 Champions Cup, a nine day basketball championship, was aired live throughout the Far East, and seen by satellite by FIBA in Europe and Al Jazeera Sports in the Middle East.

It was also used for the World 10 Ball Championships in billiards. "We like the ZEPLAY for billiards because we can string together different shots of the player winning a frame easily, and do a quick summary of highlights at the end of a frame," explained director Dong Capinpuyan. "In basketball we quickly create highlight packages of each half using the clip melt functions, which we can play live to air using the built-in switcher."

Capinpuyan continues "We started using the ZEPLAY extensively over a year ago and we have yet to encounter any issues with the hardware or software – in fact everything has run smoothly from the start."

For Video Gear, managing director and owner Fernan Obrero said "Using ZEPLAY has helped enhance our production quality, and has raised the bar of our coverage through the use of instant replays from different angles.

"TV5 liked our truck so much that they are buying it for their own services so we are buying another ZEPLAY for our new outside broadcast unit as our users like it so much," he added.

"When we designed ZEPLAY the aim was to help broadcasters get good quality instant replays onto the screen with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of accuracy," said Andy Starks, co-founder of Tightrope Media Systems. "The experience of Video Gear in Manila, and Dong Capinpuyan the director who has been using it, shows that we got it right, making it simple to operate and secure in output, which is great news."

The ZEPLAY server was supplied to Video Gear and supported by Tightrope Media System's Philippines distributor Accelerate Global Sales.

ZEPLAY has seen action on hundreds of hours of live production in the field and is a proven, reliable solution that can meet the fast-paced, mission-critical heavy demands of live sports production — whether installed in arenas, stadiums or Outside Broadcast vehicles.
