Deltacast now compatible with NewTek TriCaster, 3Play
Deltacast, the developer of Delta-touch and Delta-stat systems, has announced that NewTek TriCaster production and 3Play slow motion systems are now compatible with its production workflows. Thanks to the implementation of NewTek’s AirSend protocol, the latest versions of Delta-stat and Delta-touch can be directly integrated with NewTek systems using a simple Ethernet connection. Scoring, statistics, graphics and animated analysis are sent to the TriCaster and 3play in realtime, through an IP connection, without using video inputs.
Delta-stat is a turnkey solution for complete graphics management during sports live productions (statistics, team composition, animations, results), with one user interface for each sport. It can be used in a mono-channel mode, delivering an SDI signal, or in double SDI channel mode to output Preview and Final. Now, Delta-stat can be configured to send both channels simultaneously to TriCaster and 3Play, as streamed feeds.
Delta-touch is a presentation touchscreen solution giving the ability to onscreen journalists to illustrate their comments using graphics or to liven up interviews by launching interactive videos. it is used by TV stations for many different use cases, such as news department for their coverage of election results, or by sport channels for the coverage of their top competitions.
The standard version of Delta-touch delivers content to both destinations, the production system and the touch screen or the tablet used, simultaneously and in realtime. With the integration of the NewTek AirSend protocol, content can also be sent simultaneously and in realtime to TriCaster through the network and to the journalists’ visual support through SDI or network connections.
“We are glad to be able to integrate our solutions to NewTek systems, a key player in the broadcast industry for many years,” said Christian Dutilleux, CEO of Deltacast. “This collaboration will allow us to answer the growing market demand for competitive, affordable and complete graphics solutions.”
