For telestration, updates to Paint with version 9 bring added speed to the creation of high-quality visuals, giving users the ability to offer fans a winning, near-live experience. Additionally, Paint's state-of-the-art visualization and newly redesigned formation tool give commentators and analysts the power to illustrate and enrich stories beyond the replay, with virtual lineups and plays.
Behind the scenes, users will appreciate the newly redesigned UI with a more polished look and feel. Individual tools within the software have likewise been updated with an aesthetic that invites and facilitates user interaction.
