BVE 2014: NewTek plans TriCaster showcase
At BVE 2014 NewTek will present its family of professional TriCaster multi-camera production systems that were unveiled at IBC 2013. These systems offer innovations including mix/effects (M/E) channels, ‘holographic’ live virtual sets and extended graphics capabilities that enable video producers to create broadcast quality, cost-effective content with a single system. Visitors to stand F20 will also see 3Play 4800, NewTek’s flagship multi-camera replay server that redefines price/performance standards in live sports production.
“NewTek’s range of live multi-camera production systems provide a level of professional functionality and visual impact previously out of reach of most video producers,” said Carter Holland, chief marketing officer, NewTek, Inc. “From broadcasters on limited budgets, to events companies seeing an increase in demand for live streaming, to sports organizations that want to improve the fan experience, the phrase we hear most from our customers is: “We couldn’t do this before”. We are proud that our systems offer them new, cost-effective ways to enhance and increase their output and create new business opportunities.”
The family of professional TriCaster systems includes four models, each designed to address a wide range of multi-camera video production needs. The specific models are:
TriCaster 410—a streamlined, compact system with a full 4 M/E production switcher, HD-SDI connectivity, and tools for live-only delivery, ideal for anyone producing small to medium-sized live shows or webcasts with powerful media sharing and disk recording capabilities.
TriCaster 460—a compact system with a full 4 M/E production switcher with greater connectivity and broader creative flexibility for any small or medium-sized production, particularly where live video content is touched up, re-packaged or re-purposed for postproduction or supplemental programming.
TriCaster 860—a system designed for full-sized live action with an abundance of angles, visuals, coverage and postproduction tools, offering a full 8 M/E production switcher, plus more channels, sources, I/O, graphics and effects, and greater capacity for media storage.
TriCaster 8000—the flagship content publishing hub for all the media in a live programme, with a premium 8 M/E production switcher, built-in failsafe and redundancy capabilities, and extensive router support for enhanced broadcast integration, massive multi-camera coverage, and mission critical high-end productions of any size.
