K2 Dyno Replay System Highlights

Moving to a high quality server based instant replay system has been limited to high end events due to the high cost and complexity of operation. K2 Dyno changes that with an easy-to-use, powerful, server based replay system that is affordable for smaller markets and new operators as well as major markets and experienced operators. Coupled with a K2 Summit or K2 Solo, it offers a complete system at less than half the price of traditional solutions.

The K2 Dyno Replay System is a complete workflow solution that addresses preproduction, on-air operation, and post-production requirements. It is easy to pre-load material and metadata before an event and quick and easy to walk away at the end of an event with all your material on industry-standard removable media.

With just a few hours of training, even inexperienced operators can be ready to handle slo-mo replays, create clips, and build highlight packages on-the-fly. The color touchscreen interface and high-quality T-Bar and buttons offer a user experience unmatched in the industry.

The ChannelFlex® option for K2 Summit® and K2 Solo® brings expanded functionality to the K2 Dyno Replay System. This is a software option that is accessed through a version of the K2 control application called AppCenter Elite.
