NewTek 460 Overview

  • 1Description

The NewTek Live Sports 460 Solution: TriCaster 460 and 3Play 425 pairs a live production switcher with a multi-camera replay system for small venue broadcast and local sports productions, each with a dedicated control surface. The solution supports resolutions up to 1080/30p and 1080/60i, and allows you to create, replay, record, publish, and stream live broadcast and sporting events. The TriCaster 460 supports four cameras and features an audio mixer, titles, warping transitions, buffers, virtual sets, DSK, and DVE effects. The 3Play 425 integrates with the TriCaster via a network connection and adds four live camera inputs and instant replay, slow motion, and in-game highlights features. The output feed for the 3Play is recognized as a live video source on the TriCaster via its network input.

Housed in a 2U rack mount chassis, the TriCaster 460 features built-in IsoCorder technology for recording of up to four isolated, simultaneous feeds during live production, from any combination of the HD-SDI, HD Component, SD-SDI, SD Component, S-Video, or Composite input connections. You can instantly publish content to popular social media sites, upload to FTP sites, transfer to storage volumes/network locations, share clips and stills during production, or upload your entire show within minutes after production wraps. Custom memory presets and key commands allow you to streamline sophisticated operation sequences that are too complex for real-time action execution. 3TB of internal storage is included for approximately 70 hours of 1080i recording.

The 3Play 425 is a 2U rack mount live replay solution for small sporting events. It supports up to four channels of live video input and recording in any combination of supported inputs, formats, and frame rates. Video inputs consist of HD-SDI, HD Component, SD-SDI, SD Component, S-Video, and Composite, all on BNC connectors. Video outputs consist of two HD/SD SDI, two analog, HDMI, and several display output ports, with DVI as the main user interface output port. You can record up to 40 hours of 1080i video onto an internal storage and an included 1TB removable drive, simultaneously recording up to two channels per drive.

The output from the 3Play can be sent to the TriCaster over a local network via an Ethernet connection, enabling remote operation of 3Play clip cueing and playback from the TriCaster interface. 3Play output signal appears as a live source through the TriCaster network inputs. Integration between the two system lets you consolidate control by combining macro commands to trigger operations across both platforms. You can also send tally status across the network as well as access and play files written between the two shared network storage drives, without having to import and host locally.
