Stream Breeze Echo Professional Instant Replay System

Overview

Instant Replay video switching and streaming system
Stream Breeze Echo

Designed from the ground up for replaying of events where high-quality HD video and reliability are top considerations with a price point that won’t break the bank, Stream Breeze Echo video production switcher offers four input variable speed slow motion instant replay system with iso recorder. The Echo includes abilities such as animated graphics playback for transitioning between live video and replay video plus the ability to add graphics overlays for titles. While in operation the Echo captures and iso records all four channels of video continuously allowing the operator to quickly mark in and out points and make selection ready for playback at selectable slow motion speeds. The replayed video can be played back not only in slow motion but also live switched between segments or played back sequentially one segment after another. While sending the output back to the main switcher with very low latency. Along with many features of high-priced replay systems, the Echo also maintains an easily to read list for quick access to previously recorded sequences. The project recording list allows operators to color code and insert comments to individual sequences for later reference. Each recorded sequence can be converted to a video file for use in post-production or archiving.

Pricing starts at $7,990.00 Custom configuration available!
