Digital Arts TLC-8D overview

  • 1Description

The metaSETZ TLC-8d Tally Light Controller from Digital Arts is used with the TriCaster 850, 855, 450, 455, and 8000 Production Systems. It translates the Program tally signal from a TriCaster Production System to illuminate the red camera and Talent tallys on supported tally lights. This controller connects with the system’s 15-pin tally port and interfaces with any tally light model from Digital Arts. The talent tallys can be globally disabled via a jumper on the TLC-8d. The green (preview) and yellow (FX) tallys are not supported.

Unlike cable adapters, the TLC-8d Controller features an intercom pass through that allows you to run both tally and intercom signals over a single CAT 5 cable. You can connect your intercom base station to the XLR port on the TLC-8d Controller and connect your beltpacks to the multipurpose port on the tally lights. The electronics in the controller are powered via a USB connection to the TriCaster (sold separately), eliminating the need for a separate power supply. It comes with a 6’ (1.8m) 15-pin tally cable and a 6’ (1.8m) USB cable. This controller is also upgradeable to full microprocessor functionality.

For CCU users, the TLC-8d Controller can be interfaced with CCUs that require Dry contact closure using an RU-2 relay unit (sold separately) for each CCU.

Note: You cannot connect a microphone directly to the Intercom XLR.

    Digital Arts TLC-8D reviews

    metaSETZ TLC-8d Tally Light Controller with Intercom Pass Through is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Okay Considering no other alternative... I bought the 8 channel system for my Livestream Studio software/hardware system. The god news is that Metasetz works as described. The kind of annoyance news is as follows. 1. The Light units look aged. With an all white-sh translucent cover, this little unit look more like a high school senior project. I can't help of thinking of those 70's and 80's electronic RF TV scrambling project from radio shack that called for the use of enclosed travel soap dishes. I had to modify mine with a layer of 2" black gaffers tape along the sides and top of the units. 2. The universal hot-shoe camera mount screw is too long for most cameras and seems to protrude into the light unit bending the plastic cover. I had to also modify the screws, by grinding them down by 1/8" and then re-tapping the threads. 3. Finally, it seems that Digital Arts forgot that the talent sits in front of "Hot" lights. These Tally lights (on the front end) are pretty dim and can't always be seen by the talent. Strangely enough the LED bulbs in the back of the units (meant for cam-ops to see light status) are significantly brighter than the fronts. - Once again I had to modify mine by reversing the lights and using them backwards. now the Talent can see the bright LED bulbs. 4. On a sidebar note: The master control unit feels kind of plastic-y. (normally I wouldn't care so much as long as the unit works). Only, but the fact that the Ethernet & power receptacles (on the inner circuit board) don't completely match the outer plastic housing. (at least on my unit). - I had to Dremel grind the edge of the plastic housing, in order to plug the USB(B) portion of the power cord into this unit. If I hadn't, Id have to return this whole system for a replacement. Like I said in my Title, I don't have much other choices in other brands for this niche product, so maybe I shouldn't complain and just be happy thet it all works in the end. Luckily I'm a natural tinkerer, but if you're not.. then buyer beware.
