New tapeless workflow finds in YouPlay the cleverest way to playout video during live production: from on-air video contributions for news, talk shows, events coverage.

YouPlay is the ideal assistant to send media to your video mixer or to fill background screens and videowalls, featuring also loop of clips or playlists and play/stop from a still frame.
Thanks to Axel’s experience in broadcast automation, YouPlay has been designed to be a real multiple-formats player with a user-friendly interface that fits perfectly into your live production with no need of training or skilled operators.
