NewTek reinforces leadership in multi-camera live video production with major enhancements to family of professional TriCaster systems


NewTek  announced major enhancements for its professional line of TriCaster™ multi-camera video production systems. The new features are now available at no cost to current TriCaster 8000, 860, 460 and 410 model owners.

“Our sole focus at NewTek is to advance the way we help video producers become better at what they do, allowing a single person to produce a show with a TriCaster and bypass the traditional broadcast equipment that typically costs ten times as much,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, chief technology officer for NewTek. “This latest release, which we’re making available at no charge, does just that with a range of refinements and new feature introductions designed to help our customer produce even higher quality shows for their rapidly growing audiences.”

The latest enhancements to the professional family of TriCaster systems include:

–       More comprehensive multi-format, multi-channel recording capabilities. All systems, including the TriCaster 410, now offer full ISO recording capabilities and the ability to instantly recall highlights with integrated replay.

–       Improved monitoring and content viewing. All systems now give producers significant monitoring flexibility with full support for four VGA outputs, including dual projector configurations and more.

–       Improved interoperability with 3Play integrated sports production systems. When used together, TriCaster and 3Play systems now deliver integrated performance unlike any other live production switcher and sports production system on the market.

–       Broad integration with third-party products. Customers working in facilities or larger-scale production environments now have access to a vast ecosystem of workflows with other industry-leading products, such as networked shared-storage, full Vizrt Trio graphics systems, broad GPI support, and more.

–       Streamlined control of operational commands. Automatic media retrieval further helps operators by automatically locating and populating session media, even when drive settings have changed.

–       Enhanced visual capabilities. Using the new advanced rendering engine that is optimized for processing image sampling, downscaling and warping, producers will experience higher-quality video images in shorter amounts of time. New Photoshop blending modes allow users to combine mix/effect layers for more sophisticated compositing, new visual effects, and higher production value.
