When the great Tricaster appeared on the market years ago, it quickly became a benchmark in all-in-one production systems. Its affordable cost and characteristics of a traditional production system gave it the title of “benchmark” in low-cost productions, and became an unrivalled solution for screen production in stadiums and institutional events. Now TC1 goes one step further and offers a series of features that put it back in the leading position of all-in-one production equipment.
At TM Broadcast, we have had the opportunity to test the big brother of the range with two redundant 400-W power supplies each and with three 19-inch rack-mount units. This is something that certainly did not go unnoticed.
All the features that made Tricaster what it is today are still there (integrated graphics, audio processing, multiple input and output formats, and so on), but now they include some new features that make it really interesting even for current Tricaster owners.
We are going to review those that have impressed us the most, and that undoubtedly represent a change of concept concerning what an integrated production system represents.
